I'm liking this a lot! Colours, mood, atmosphere, composition... All top notch.

2 things you could improve on though:
  1. This picture of yours is very minimalistic: It only features 2 (or 3) things: power lines and a deep black horizon vs the dramatic sky. But there is one more element here: There's a little bit of a fence almost hidden near the bottom of the picture. And it kinda doesn't fit. It distracts from the grandeur of the whole thing.

  2. Sharpening is a bit on the strong side. Maybe it's the camera, maybe Photoshop. Regardless, it creates some nasty double contours. The first 2 photos you linked to in your description do not suffer from this. (The third one does to some degree as well.) I say, there is no need to overly sharp an image – even if it appears to be too soft in direct comparison.
But again, despite these nitpicks, I really like this one.

I'm really glad you like this shot and shared your thoughts.
The sharpening does bother me. This was exported with too strong setting. Will get it fixed next time I come across the original file. :nod:
Thank you very much for your feedback. :thumbsup:

No. They seem almost peaceful, with the sun setting behind them. The urban mixed with nature makes it stand out.

Very nice silhouette although it would have made it more dynamic if the lines had've been moved over either left or right just slightly. Just in my opinion.

Not uncommon to find these colors at that time of year. Yet, they only last for a few minutes. One has to be fast on the 'trigger'. :)
Thanks for the comment. Glad you like this one.
