Maybe it's a matter of taste, but for me the colours are way too saturated. There is bright orange, dark red, blues and greens, those are a lot of primary colours.


As a start, I would get rid of the green patch in the lower left corner. Let it have the same colour as the brown field. Also the blueish roofs (of the foreground and the central midground building) are distracting and take away from the gentle blue tones of the sky. The roofs could be almost grey or white.


I think after those changes, I wouldn't mind the strong oranges and reds, after all, it is a sunset (or -rise?).

But again, that's just me and my weird eyes,,,, Otherwise it is a very nicely composed picture, the clouds balance the constructions.

I would stick with your first comment "its a matter of taste" and photoshopping out the grass was not something I wanted to do.

Very good composition, good colors and no flairs. You should be proud of this shot.

Actually it wouldn't be difficult if you're using Photoshop. First use the Lasso tool to select the grass area (doesn't have to be perfect by any means), then under the EDIT menu go to FILL, select CONTENT-AWARE in the CONTENTS box, and hit OK. And Whalaa! This is one of my favorite tools, great for removing unwanted in-laws from photos too

I would cut the green patch out as well, unless it aesthetically adds something proportionally profound to the overall theme. I might go as far to cut the clouds out to make it panoramic.

Very beautiful scenery at the right time of the day.

I really like this image as it is. The only thing I might try is a little contrast boost to give it a little more "pop". It may not have the desired effect, but it would be interesting to see.

This is a good photo. Good compsition and location at the right time. Did you use filters on the lens to dim the light from the sun?

I like this Foto.
It looks wide, has a wonderfull light and the format works.
With a little more place on the left side/corner I find it even better.

Grüße,
Birk

I like the photo a lot as well, maybe the colours are a bit too much for some, but I don't mind personally. Nicely done!
