Nice! You did a great job framing the oil rig against the fire sky.

Nice colours in the sky, but for me there is far too much black, I would loose 3/4 of it.

Agree ^^^. #1 rule in landscape photography is to not put horizon in center of frame. I think it holds here. But I like the photo!

I'm not a huge fan of that rule, I follow it about 75% of the time but sometimes a centered horizon works well, and I reckon it works well here for the simple fact that too much dark foreground would have ruined the shot.

The best photos are the ones you get if you actually venture out shooting instead of sitting at home

I was not aware of the landscape rule. I shoot mainly birds and wildlife, but starting to get into landscapes/sunsets since I'm on the road more now.

Better?

The slight change in moving the horizon helped in 2 ways.
1. moved the horizon from the center - it was not working
2. There was too much black negative space and you reduced it.

A much better image now.


just a few of my thoughts...
