I like the way you framed it with the white buildings against the black mountain and the orange-red buildings against the gray-blue sky.   Posted: 05/09/2020 12:58:25

Good composition, sharpness and color. Did you use HDR filter? The color seems extra bright for a sunset.   Posted: 05/18/2020 10:40:45

Thank you, Ruth; your feedback is much appreciated. I do not own the HDR program and never use it. I check my note that show exact time of taking this shot was May 5 2010 6:30 pm. Which is before sunset. Sorry! I mislead the viewers.   Posted: 05/19/2020 00:27:00

Loved the image, but didn't like the crane, so I removed it.   Posted: 05/22/2020 09:47:38

Very impactful with a great color palate. I like the contrast between brightness and warmth of the colors and the cool texture of the sky. The foreground takes up 1/2 of the image. I would crop out the rocks and make the wooden walkway the foreground. I also would remove the wooden fence in the lower right corner. This gives the image more of a pano look.   Posted: 05/22/2020 10:57:32
