Hi Tom,
wow is that sky ever on fire and speaking of fire is smoke from a burning forested area the cause of the intense red I see?The richness of colour and limited pallet mainly red and black is very striking and your crop works wonders as well.A pleasant photo and thank you for sharing it with us. Bob

Hi Tom,

Nice composition with striking colours. I like
the mirror of the still water giveing tranquility to the scene.


Hi Tom,
I've heard about the exteem high temps, and I hope it wasn't too bad for you. It did give you this wonderful sunset. I love the reflection on the calm water and the darm pieces of land inbetween them. Your placement of the sun is wonderful and gives good balance with the tree brance in the FG.
It's interesting to see that you've used a tabacco filter. Especially in these days of digital photography. I think I would prefer to use a grad ND and add color later.
