I'm no photographer just raw photographic eye I know what makes an interesting shot! I've Critiqued a pic before and had another photographer come back saying,” oh it wasn't all that because it was dark I would have done this or that he should have...”

Well I replied with, “I'm about the art of what was taken and the Beauty of the vision of the shot! “ When you can't see the forest for the trees or the sunset for the aperture used then you've gone to the dark side! It the vision the heart of the shot if what you see moves you then you've done your job!

This Moves me because of the scope, the vision of the look of the sky, and sun how you rounded with the kind of exposure that keeps it from being too bright yet the sun shimmers on the water its Fantastic and as I watch this Beauty unfold my Itunes just happens to correspond to the Beauty of this setting!

What i can say about this Photo..
First off all: Its An HDR with those typical effects you can see in the clouds.
The Special thing about this photo is the sun which is burning brightly due to the long exposure.
It provides and awesome effect of bursting fire and it gets underlined by the clouds.
The point of view , the observer gets, is amazing!
There is a hard line between the wide open ocean and a flatten landscape.
One thing that is a critique worth is the border between the sky and the earth related things.
As always , HDR had some unpopular side effects.
One of these is a line where the exposure is unnatural and breaks the whole impression.( just for those grumblers who takes enough time to observe the details)

My Conclusion:
Another awesome Picture by Zardo! :)
A Clear view on everything and a good chosen exposure.
Theres just one thing that avoids the last star it needs :P
