    I visited an expo of Turner's work last year and the comparison artsy made is indeed fitting. My photo ended 2nd, but this was my personal 2nd place. Congrats.

(BTW, still waiting for that email!!!)

    Great shot. Welcome to the challenges. I hope I could convince you to become a regular. At least promise you'll try some of the next few challenges (the actual next one is a little wonky to me, but that's just me out of ideas, ha!).

    A.N.Other.. thank you for your comments.. the orange color... I have two monitors.. on one it looks great.. on the other the orange saturation is over the top! I wasn't sure what to do.. The frame!.. I saw in the rules that frames are not allowed.. I went back and cropped the frame.. and then realized later that I had posted the original !! Duh! I appreciate you taking your time to comment..

    Absolutely well done. The sky is to die for! The fisherman perfectly positioned and balanced in the frame. Excellent work!

    Wow, sunset shots don't get much better than this.

    What a lovely scene. I must apologise if this is true to life but it just looks too orange for my taste. I hope you don't mind but I had a play with it on my computer to see if I could make a version closer to my tastes. I could show you it in the outtakes if you like.

One little thing.....frames aren't allowed in the challenges. Some people are sticklers for the rules and I don't want you to loose votes unnecessarily. GL.

    Many thanks for all the wonderful comments! They are much appreciated. To have my photo compared to a Turner masterpiece is about the greatest compliment that I can imagine!

    Great scene, ideal for the panorama, nice colours & good exposure, should do well.

    Gorgeous sunset! The fisherman and boat are tiny but well placed to add interest.

    Normally I find sunset/sunrise shots a bit boring... Nothing to really look at, but the detail, shapes, highlights and shades in the clouds is just spectacular. Well Done.

    Nice sunrise?

Lo

    This is a magnificent sunset. The texture of the clouds and the vibrant colours really make this impressive.

    Contrary to negative comments about sunset shots that have been made here recently, this has a beautiful painterly quality that sets it apart from the usual. Very smart to emphasize the sky and not include more water in the foreground. Good use of aspect ratio to extend the horizontal line.

    Magnificent copper shimmer in these skies and their reflection. A silent beauty, this photo.

    The fisherman, which would be a great subject for the image, is just too tiny.

    the full frame panorama stitch has worked well and makes the fisherman more at peace with his world with all of the emptiness around him

    Wow, it looks like a Turner painting - great

    Despite the somewhat monochromatic nature of this image it is striking and well conceived. I love the way you have captured the sky and clouds.

    Great colours and love the position of the horizon. Fits well with the composition

    I dislike sunset shots, but only because most attempt to suggest they are getting something worthy of the sort of praise that this shot rightly deserves. This is an excellent example of everything done right and a superb image. A J.M.W. Turner landscape springs to mind and to me the comparison in inescapable. You've rendered the photo equivalent of his high art canvasses. High in my picks and the first clear choice in a long while of my Art imitates Panachallenge selections in the forum. Kudos. Well done.
