You had a beautiful sunset, but having the riders greatly improves the image (and you placed them perfectly). I like the rim of light and the light rays on the rock. You placed yourself at a great location to capture that. I agree with Ian that you should print it and put in on the wall.   Posted: 05/14/2023 16:56:32

Wow Paul. You nailed it. The play of light is brilliant with the sun hiding behind the rock giving out that starlight effect. I also like the reflection of the horses in the water and the beautiful dispersement of light in the clouds. Brilliant. I would print more than one, autograph it and leave a copy each for the grand kids....!!!!   Posted: 05/17/2023 11:35:37

Making this photograph are the riders, blend of soft sunset hues, thanks to your positioning the setting sun behind one of the haystacks and benefitting further from the resulting rim lighting. Magnificent photograph Paul.   Posted: 05/21/2023 17:40:58

You did it! It would have been a very nice photo with just the rocks, sunset and water reflections. The sunset and rays on the rock are perfect.By adding the horses and riders it went up a level! It is so subtle! I cannot decide if you should crop the left fifth of the photo and some from the top. It is just lovely!   Posted: 05/26/2023 18:51:22
