I was walking with my back to the sunset and just turned round to capture the gorgeous sky before the sun went down completely!

Thank you, I've been taking photos for a while but just started taking it a bit more seriously.

An excellent sky, and wellrecorded. What you needed to make this a winner was a more interesting foreground silhouette as a focal point. Sunsets/skies are usually backgrounds to something else - a figure in profile would have been good, quite small would do.

A lovely sunset, and as mention above better with a cleaner foreground. As you likely dont have any heavy earth moving equipment in your camera bag, you can do some quite simple changes using Photoshop as in my mod that will make this come alive for you.

I removed the two tree on right, moved the main tree in and placed on a third, cleaned up any remaining tree pieces, sharpened, boosted contrast to bet a better sense of silhouette, and added a simple frame.

Hope this is helpful and gives you some ideas


regards


Willie
