What an Amazing Sky!! Beautifully captured Author!

A  colorful sunrise
avatar MyMindsEye

A very nice sunset silhouette with the faint sun-ray effect adding to the eye-appeal.
Well seen and nicely captured but I think a cropping some of the top 1/3(negative space) might improve the overall composition as it adds nothing to the image. (IMHO of course).
Good luck, Author.

Color at sunset
avatar MyMindsEye

Really cool find and nicely captured!
I do think the horizon tilts slightly to the right and this upsets a wonderful composition (IMHO). I see the vertical lines of the water are somewhat straight, but I think the horizontal line is more important to the eye.
Good luck, Author.

Nice shot, but might crop more closely... but is it a "heart?" ("almost," but not quite)

(5 years and 1481 days ago)

Amost a heart ..

I like it! Evokes the stillness of the morning, the empty benches lightly dusted with frost, great vanishing point too!

Agree with friiskiwi, the horizon should be straightened. At the moment I keep tilting my head when I look at this image.

Edit: Much better author.

I'm thinking if you up'd the contrast to bring out the textures, and cropped out the second story (leaving the red brick border in) might add dynamic to this rail.

Varanasi : indian temple
avatar friiskiwi
friiskiwi says:

A pyramid (from Greek: "πυραμίς" – pyramis[1]) is a structure whose outer surfaces are triangular and converge at a single point. The base of a pyramid can be trilateral, quadrilateral, or any polygon shape, meaning that a pyramid has at least three triangular surfaces (at least four faces including the base). The square pyramid, with square base and four triangular outer surfaces, is a common version.
