This is a photo that I took on a walk one day during an awesome sunset. I really liked this photo out of the few I took, so I took it into editing and worked around with it some. I came up with this as an end result, just curious to see what other people like/dislike about it. 🙂

some things I would try doing better next time is I would maybe take a step to the right so you would be in the middle of the road and maybe focusing in the middle of the photo so that the hill and road are a little in focus Or maybe it looks like you may have used the blur tool? these are just my thoughts you don’t have to do any of them.
I don’t what you were aiming for when you took the picture.
Hope this makes sense 😬January 15, 2019 at 11:26 am #36310James StaddonKeymaster
Very nice sunset, indeed, @ryanben2! Jump in on the webinar tonight, let me know you’re on, and I’ll critique your photo in more detail! https://www.lenspiration.com/photo-critique-with-lenspiration-jan-15/January 16, 2019 at 12:10 pm #36352James StaddonKeymaster
So, I didn’t have as much time to spend on the critique of this photo as I would have liked on the webinar last night (https://www.lenspiration.com/video/webinar011519/), but basically, what I wanted to say about it is that though the image itself is not technically attractive, it’s authenticity is what is attractive. I think that is why I like it. It’s a hard style to pull off but somehow you’ve done it here.
Of course there are the technical things that should be attended to, like the hard, vertical line through the center of the sky, and the obvious transition where the blur has been added in post processing, but those are details that don’t play much in the overall feeling of the image.
