Breath of Life by Heltinde Breath of Life by Heltinde
The sunsets here are too pretty.

This was taken with my new camera: a Canon Rebel T3i.
It's an awesome camera and it takes great quality photos! :dance:

Hope you guys like it.

this is a great shot, it takes me back to my time in Florida. small complaint though, the watermark is kinda distracting, maybe move it to a corner and re-size it? where was this taken, if you don't mind me asking?

because I'm more into photography, this is my favorite piece from your gallery. I think you caught the moment very well its a nice Sunset. I like the contrast with the black silouhette. Well done!

Ahhh I take pictures with my Canon every day, but it's rare when I really want to post one on dA. I just went on Spring Break vacation, so now I have a lot that have the potential to be uploaded. But I'm doing commissions first!

This looks good. I love sunsets. Everything else a silhouette works well. I don't think I've seen sunset photos done like this before.

I think sunsets are one of my favorite natural things on this earth. They're so magical and they look different each and every day.

Thank you for your lovely comment!

wow what a gorgeous sky!! love the silhouettes in the foreground, really adds to the pic :)
great framing and DOF too. only thing id change is that id personally like to see a bit more of the silhouettes(just my opinion though)
all in all a very nice piece!! :D

Thanks so much for your lovely comment and constructive tips!
I wanted to get a little bit more of the silhouettes as well, but from where I was standing, it was almost impossible. I tried moving around, but the spot I found had the nicest view. I'll definitely give it a try when I see another gorgeous sunset!

Beautiful shot!  You're lucky to live in a place where you can see sunsets clearly...Where I live(Houston), the trees always get in the way.

I'm told that Arizona has the prettiest sunsets, and I am pretty much convinced this is true haha.
I was lucky enough to get a straight shot from the street, so trees in people's yards weren't too much of a problem.

Lovely colours and the composition is pretty good. However, I think, if it's possible, it would have been less distracting for the composition if you had 1) included more of the trees/ground to balance it out, or 2) excluded them entirely. But I think that's optional. The watermark is also very professional looking (much better looking than the original dA watermark, lol).

I think I do agree with you composition wise, but it was hard from where I was standing to get more ground or trees in the picture without cutting out some of the sky.

I hate dA's watermark! It's nice that they offer it to people who maybe can't make their own, but I think it's ugly :'D

Yeah, dA's watermark isn't well designed at all. I think it ruins artwork when it's applied, honestly.

Definitely, I had the same problem with many of my photos. Unlike in video games, it's not possible to use cheats in real life to take photos with the best composition!

I think art gets ruined when you use it as well. It's so distracting.

Wouldn't that be great. Move trees out of the way, make the sunset prettier and you're all set! :giggle:

LOL Thanks!

I'm not sure if I like the watermark all that much, though... I'll have to keep trying other styles out to see what I like.
I might try a more curvy/elegant font, but I don't know XD

:nod: The sunsets and sunrises here have been axtraordinary lately!

Good to hear from you again, by the way! I was almost about to send you a little note asking how you've been and all, but I kind of got side-tracked. haha

Yes, I love curvy and handwriting type fonts.

Ur welcome.

lol "a"xtraordinary. XD Quite beautiful indeed.

That's fine. I wrote a journal. Not sure if you've read it. I'm about to type up another one...later today.

Have fun with your new camera. You better post some stuff. ;)
