Hello dear friends!

I was out for a few days but I have not forgotten any of my friends from TN ! This pic was taken in a "Platation" near New Orleans ( USA).This is an oak tree and it was full of parasites herbs which formed such a curtain of fine wires.When the sun was setting the "curtains" were on pure gold.
Hope you like my pic! It is just for you !
All my love,

Hi Ana.I like warm colors and beautiful atmosphere. I regret that the bottom curtain cut off and the sun I placed off-center. Thank you for sharing and good luck.

Hi Ana,

Well Ana what a well seen and good point of view here, with great imagination, lovely rich colours, very well composed dramatic scene, perhaps a fall of of sharpness but nevertheless a nice picture,
Congratulations and have a nice evening,
Best Regards,

Hi Ana,a very great magic light effect,the tree seems burn,magnificent tranparencies and warm colors as i like.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano

Hi Ana,
Great to see you're back, dear! You came back from the States with at least one beautiful photo - this. The "golden curtain" is absolutely gorgeous! Bravo! What might be done somehow else - by my opinion - is hiding the sun behind the "curtain" a bit more, to avoid direct return light. Otherwise, pleasing compo and fascinating sunset colors. Great job.
Friendly regards, László

Hello Ana
Interesting photo with fantastic lighting.

Hallo Ana,
a beautiful picture of this sunset, not easy with this baclighting, splendid warm colours and great contrast, very well composed
best regards

Hallo aNa
This is some special image. It is not the kind of sunset we see the most of the times. It has artistic flair to it and the variety of colours in the scene is magic. Although harsh, the light in the image is really lovely to look at. The "curtains" displays beautifully and I am glad you shared this lovely scene with us. Best regards.

Hello Ana,
Congratulations on a stunning sunset image. The hanging moss couldn't have been placed in a better spot as it precisely caught the suns rays. You were in the right place at the right time in order to capture such an attractive scene. Well done!!

What a lovely and different way to see a sunset!
Well done!

Welcome back aNa! What can I add here ... ? Except, nice pleasant snapshot with good clarity and powerful colors... easy on the eye, and ...unassuming!
The image is lacking focal point in my opinion and the view seems unfinished ... I mean like a Thriller with happy ending or like a romantic movie with sad end ... you know what I mean ... the mind is on a constant search for something more here!

Ciao Ana. TFS this fascinating and intrigant sunset. Unique atmosphere in a great compo!


Bonjour Ana

Une jolie photo du coucher de soleil qui illumine et colore
de sa couleurs l'arbre de l'avant-plan, j'aime cette couleur
chaude et qui fait un excellent contraste avec la couleur
verte de l'arrière-plan, TFS


Interesante e instructiva fotografía. Que sepas que yo me dedico a los pesticidas agrícolas!! suena mal y más siendo un fotógrafo de naturaleza:-). Espero que todo vaya bien y que te lo hayas pasado bien por los EEUU de América.

Hello aNa,
Welcome back and nice seeing you here again. Looking at this image I think I get the same sensation that you did when seeing it for real..great atmosphere with almost blinding sunlight offset by the beautiful FG and the colours on the ground. Perhaps reducing the brightness on the spot of sunlight only may have added some more atmosphere but very good as is. Artistic flair? Yes definitely. Well done and best wishes.

Hello Ana,
To get the right light to shine through these 'curtains' of hanging lichens is not easy and here the sun is too bright if one were to see the lichens where the sun is.
However the effect is very eye catching and can appeal to many, for which this deserves credit.
Thanks and best regards,
