Saeed My Friend,
This is yet another exquisite image you share with us today, your talent for capturing great feelings in your images is very much on display with this shot, thanks Saeed.

Hi Saeed,
I like these photos where the sun hasn't really set yet, but the sky is already starting to show the warm colors of a sunset, but still also show the cool colors of the day. What really amazes me in this photo is the strong horizontal line of the clouds just above the sun. The difference between dark and light on the opposite of this line is clearly visable. The silhoutte of the landscape is wonderful. Great work on the exposure eventhough the sun does look a little hot, but this is obviously impossible to overcome.

Hi Saeed,

i agree with Niek about the strong line above the sun - an amazing division of light and shadow. Perfectly composed to get the most out of the sky with a horizon the compliments the image and holds it all together. Good work my friend.


Hello Saeed,
This is a dramatic sky! I love those colors and perfect exposure. Those clouds are just amazing. You caught the perfect moment of the day in all its glory! Well done and TFS,

Hi Saeed

Another moody landscape shot from you, my friend!
The colors and tones here are fantastic and the exposure is managed excellently!
The fact that you also managed to catch some very nice and streight sunrays is great and the shapes of the clouds are wonderful, too!
A very beautiful composition, increased by the silhouettes of the trees from the horizon.

Bravo and TFS

Really marvellous!
I love it!
A great shot, Saeed!
Congratulations and TFS.

This is a really nice sunset shot Saeed, with beautiful oranges and blues. I like the low foreground silhouette. There are interesting angles and shapes in the sky. I saw a movie from your country last evening: "Children of Heaven" Those kids were so beautiful, and so cute. They are superb actors too.

The clouds in this sunset image are magnificent. Maybe the light in the immediate vicinity of the sun is a bit harsh, but overall, it is a good composition.
