Your Photo: Our Critique

Brenton submitted this image taken with a Pentax could have been more neatly silhouetted had the photographer not been so close to them with that said, the wine bottle adds a nice touch.

Brenton submitted this image taken with a Pentax K20D with an exposure of 1/125sec, f/8, ISO 200. Consider cropping some of the tree trunk from the right. I have gone back and forth on including or cropping out the leaves across the top, if you crop them out you move the sunset out of the middle of the frame which is a good thing. The sunset is the real show stopper here, if you preferred the people silhouetted could have been more neatly silhouetted had the photographer not been so close to them with that said, the wine bottle adds a nice touch. The exposure of the sunset is well done and really captures the clouds being blacklit.
