Heaven's Rays by FatalBite Heaven's Rays by FatalBite
I was lucky to capture this stormy light yesterday at the coast.
It started raining a moment before I took this photograph but fortunately I didn't leave as it stopped raining after a while.

Full-view, please.

First think I notice is that everything is so very very colorful, with strong purple and gold tones, which of course really makes the image pop out. The second thing I notice is that the whole thing is well composed with s center of golden rays, the purple clouds keeping your eye from floating off the top of the page, and a plant redirecting the gaze back up to the center. Great visual movement. The third thing that I notice is that the whole image is in focus, which gives you lots of lovely eye candy to look at. Overall, it is a delightful piece to look at.

A couple things cross my mind though. First, I notice that the water is crisp, and while it may just be a personal preference on my part, I'll say that I really like the way water looks when the waves create a little motion blurr, it makes the image look more painted, and with the vibrant colors you are using, I think that would go well with the composition. But like I said, that might just be a personal preference thing. The second thing I notice is that the image is very centered and this kind of arrangement, wile lovely, has been done a lot. Variety is the spice of life right? Well I think that the picture might... just MIGHT look a little better if it wasn't so perfectly centered... might add interest because it wouldn't look quite like the same arrangement everyone else does.

I'm only mentioning those though as things to think about with future images, because truth be told, this is lovely just as it is too. I'm only suggesting things to consider... over all, this is a wonderful shot. Thank you much for sharing it with us.

The colors are amazing, they really pop out. With all those different layers it makes a really interesting photography, it's different then what you normally see of nature photographs.
The first I noticed was the light shining, it really looks amazing.
