Blistering Sunset by bizstice Blistering Sunset by bizstice
This is the first of many pics ill b putting up over the next month of my holiday in New Zealand. The Colours were so vibrant.. so i couldnt resist. It was taken between Christchurch and Lake Tekapo on the side of the road.

Photoshop = contrast, brightness, border, title

I love it. I'm at a loss as to how you can improve it...and I'm NEVER at a loss for criticism.

gorgeous composition and colours! Some of it is a tiny bit over-exposed, and you can see the grain in a couple of places, but otherwise it is a beautiful photo! I can't really give you any tips for over-exposure except to use the sponge tool in photoshop. :)

great composition, only clouds to be seen! lovely!

the colours... ok for me they are to strong, i would like to see the original photograph if the colours are there too strong too. but on the other hand it is damn vibrant! and i love sunrays. Great capture anyways!

Interesting skyscape. After awhile of looking at sky shots it get's kind of dull. Thanks for breaking the mold. I love that it has a dark side.

the colors are not completely natural if you bumped up the contrast and lowered the brightness. those two things change the saturation and color of the photograph. so why would you say the colors are natural?

bizstice Featured By Owner May 23, 2004   Photographer
when i said the colours are natural, i mean i havnt gone and changed a dark orange to a red to make it look better and i havnt changed the saturtation much at all, so basicly what u see is almost exactly what it looked like at the time.

Wow, I'm impressed. Saw your submission at ~sunsets and figured I'd fave the real one here :) The text at the bottom is too large for my tastes but the photo itself is wonderful. I love the stark black, orange and blue.
