Often we stand at choices, decisions and changes that must be made. What many times holds us back is the thought of the consequences that follows.
Sometimes I wish I could take the step, the one step needed to continue, without hesitating and think too much.

A step I wish I more often could take faster.


Shot the other day with a magnificent sunset. Intense and vivid, one of those great nights to remember.

I found your page from linking from one to another, and it caught my eye with a massive burst of excitement.

I really loved the way this was pictured and the settings it had on, just the way it's angled, the view is amazing on how it's a little bit higher then the steps and the upper ground, but it dips down at the end showing the nice glow of the sun, as the picture is closer towards you gets darker, and you feel like you're lighting up as you go down the path, which i thought was a major stand out.

The graphics, the detail, the depth and precision of this piece is of immaculateness and I'm 110% sure anyone who steps upon this work will be greatly amazed, and will be left with a "wow" factor.

Vision is pefect, including originality, I have never seen a shot like this before. Technique was explained earlier, making it a easy 6/5, and the impact upon me and others will definitely be counted towards this critique.

In conclusion, AWESOME work. I love it.

I love how the texture of the sky mimics the texture of the stone steps.

I love the way that this photo has some of every colour without appearing to be rainbow.
It's well balanced in terms of colour, too, in that warm and cool are balanced out.
Your framing is also excellent; You have made good use of the "Rule of Thirds", and it has paid off wonderfully.

I also appreciate the comments; I find them very meaningful. they are far more insightful than the simple "..." that I have seen many people post in my time.

The reason I write this as a comment, and not a critique, is because I prefer a free membership.
Overall rating: :star::star::star::star::star: 5/5

I tend to not think so much about the rule of thirds when I take the shot since most of the time you can't keep the rule without loosing the composition. BUT, since I'm aware of it I think that I do think of it without thinking of it hehe.

You should try membership, it's worth it all the way!

Chers!
