where did you capture the image? nicely done

it's mildly interesting, but nothing to write home about. the colours just seem completely off to the point of distraction, and even though I realize that with shooting the sun head on something's gotta give, they're just off. i don't have to care why.

the forum on this website has traditionally been a rock bottom low standard, in that anything and everything is called breathtaking, but the site editors have for most parts been pretty good at keeping the quality at a certain level. just lately it's been really going down the hill. could it be the so-called loupe?? i mean, there's a reason you don't give matches to kids...

probably somewhere on Earth. clouds and sun are relatively easy to locate over there.

I like this photo, it's very powerful..it makes me think about an apocalyptic place..

BabyBurned, if you think quality is going down, you should find another wallpaper site..It's very easy, but it seems you're not able to do it..secondly your answer to yawnP is wrong..for instance iabidin couldn't take this photo underwater or inside his house, even if they're on earth..

Great job taking this without any flare. Nicely done

@Burn.. you are one MEAN and CRUEL SOB.
I hope I am there when you are judged the way you have judged everyone here. It wouldn't be so bad if its a once in a while type of thing from you. But you seem to insist that every piece submitted here is either garbage just because its not to your liking. Some of the pieces submitted here definitely need help, but do not deserve your type of criticizm.
There is a huge difference between CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM and the vomit you spew out.

Looks like burned joined the site just to insult the photo. They had been a member of the site all of 1 day when they posted that comment.

Why don't you put up a picture that you think is perfect. It should have no problem getting through, especially past the kids with matches... though they may burn it down out of pure spite.

Evaluating art is often very subjective; while one person may seriously dislike a piece, another may find it highly pleasing. Anyone can point a camera at the sky and capture an image, but it takes some thought to capture a unique, interesting image. To me, this shot is unique and interesting! The sepia effect works well here, I think (just be sure to use this effect sparingly). The soft yellow-orange sun makes a dramatic statement. Another important detail here is the cloud highlights surrounding the center of the image; this gives more interest to the piece. I'm not sure I would use this picture as a desktop wallpaper, but I'll definitely use it in my nature-sky screensaver cycle.

Love it.

@ Burnbaby

I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.

For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.

Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!).

Another great shot.
PS- if you ignore a punk, it will go away from lack of attention. I won't mention any names, that gives them what they want. Not from me. Nuff said.

The photo itself is by no means complex. But the color choosing and composition works and looks fantastic on a desktop. So excellent job with that! And yes, people, stop feeding the trolls, it's a no brainer there.

I like the content and composition, but I guess I'm not big on these harsh yellows. That said, I'm not sure I've seen many similar shots much better than this.

This is actually pretty cool in black & white. Reminds of a creepy Hubble shot and takes away the natural unease of looking at an image of the sun. On my desktop now.

I have to agree with BurnBaby.. Although a great shot, it's just not up to par like this site was when I first started lurking around here. It's not much to the likes of Chris Gin and Macindows. Great shot though.. let's see another.

Nice shot ;)

Excellent, but, if you would have taken the same picture but with the sun out of it it would have been grandiose. Thanks for a refreshing wallpaper.

Capturing the sun is always difficult.. You seem to have done it quite well.. :)

While the darkness surrounded the sun tricks my eyes into thinking this is too bright - and therefore I'm not going to use it as a wallpaper - this is still quite nice. An excellent amount of detail has been captured, despite your looking directly into the sun. Nicely done.

In this instance I think Burn is correct

looks well enough, the quality isn't all that bad, but the sun is just too bright for me.

BabyBurned - Find another place to dump your trash. Good pic! I LOVE taking shots of the sky.

The details on the clouds and control over it flaring out from the light is really neat. You can't get a shot at the sky like this with just your eyes.

However, it's a little bleak for my liking. I know there's only so much you can do to a photo and I'm not judging your efforts on preventing me from seeing bleak. You did good. I just can't attach to it.

brizkit, I tried as you suggested and made it black and white. I think I'll hold on to it now as it's easier to look like. As one said earlier. Some works just hit some people better than others. One thing to learn from art appreciation is how to rate a picture without jumping to base I like it or not like it conclusions. Identify certain things like detail or balance or how well colors combine together.

I agree with negative criticism , but only to a certain degree.
Someone here feeds off a comment such as mine and others.

Lykos, intuitive "base" conclusions are often quite reliable. That said, our comments are almost identical in detail and conclusion, so I'm not sure why you tossed that schoolhouse art appreciation lecture my way. I just left out my droning thoughts on those clouds as I think they speak for themselves.

P.S. I added a little contrast and shadow boost to the B/W version of this one. I still prefer it this way. Who wants to stare at burning yellows in the height of summer? Seattle hit 103F the other day.
