[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Hi TL Friends,
The other day, the sky was heavily overcast, a rather dull day. At one point there was a small opening and the Sun quickly came to view. It's as if it was trying to break out but lasted only for a moment. What I like about this photo is that the sky is rather dramatic but most importantly is that we can see the Sun's rays extending from the clouds. It seems as the Sun's rays are hands which have gripped onto the opening and is trying to pull it's self out!

WOW...! What a vivid imagination! LOL...

Hi Constantinos

I like the smoky lighting here, & the tight framing on the colorful sunset. Good tonal range, sharpness & graphism. Congratulations!

Absolutely stunning image. I like your imagination and you are right, it does seem as if it wants to come out from the clouds and shine onto the land but the clouds seem to be too powerful and scary!

I love to see the sun, even amidst those threatening clouds, Κώστα. Nice frame too, though it makes the shot look like it has a grey haze over it... I think I'd have underexposed this one a bit.
Anyway, TFS.

This is one of the most sunsets I ever ever seen. You have caught all the intensity of it, it seems if you took the sun as your prisoner! :)
And I enjoy the framing very well either!

Fantastic sky Con..I feel ashamed I did not see this before. Was so busy teaching Hellen and you to sing'Karaoke' This reperesents the Proverb so well:
Every cloude has its Silver lining
Thanks Con.. its perfect.
Did I tell my last flower (posting) is called:

How did i miss this one....
The effect you created is simply mind blowing. You are right about the sun.And looks like the clouds might just come out of the frame. The warm and rich colours simply makes this picture soooo dramatic....and so intense. Superb. I like this one.

Wonderful capture, Constantinos!
I like how you composed this shot and PP.
Well done!

Hi Constantinos,

A great shot, it almost looks like a painting. The composition is good, and the colours are exceptional.


Woow Costantinos, great sunset. Congratulation, great colours, framing and worked.

TFS :))

Looks great. Have you tried the burn and dodge tools in PS? Those are great to change cloud appearance.


beautiful shot, Nice POV, good farming, i like these warm colors too ;)

Καλησπέρα Κώστα

Η καλύτερή σου φωτογραφία και ίσως μία από τις καλύτερες στο θέμα τους εδώ μέσα! Εξαιρετική στιγμή, υπέροχα καταγεγγραμένη από εσένα. Χρώματα και φωτισμός στο κατακόρυφο! Έξοχη δουλειά!

Awesome colours and you captured it very well.I thought it was Forest Fire at first Glance.Congrats.

Superb, Cons! This is how Boticelli paints his skies if I am correct! Wonderful shot! Wonderful timing (for you having your cam at this moment).

Here are 2 more points! And so well deserved!

Take care, Yan :)

p.s. Thx for the crit on "O Mother, Where Art Thou?".

p.p.s Where do you adjust the whites in your pp software? And what software do you use?

Hi Constantinos
Beautiful photo, looks like if god was looking at us,
great colors and framing
Very well done

Hello Constantinos,
Excelent sunset-capture with beautiful and warm colours. The framing makes it even more an eye-catcher.
