Pyromania by ~Silverbeck captures a world drenched in flames of beauty. ( Featured by RockstarVanity )
:iconnikodonburi:
I think the composition of the photograph was nicely done. The eye naturally goes to the sun given both its brightness and position in the image. Such a bright image would normally overpower a photo but you balance it nicely with the road and tall trees on the far right. Most viewers won't stop to wonder how the road and trees could be so bright when the sun is setting, but you might consider burning or darkening the trees right above the road, leaving the brush in the front lighter. That would also give a feeling of a bit more depth to the photo, and provide a nice contrast to the sky. Right now the colors run into each other a bit there.

The positioning of the road is very, very helpful to both figuratively and literally bring the viewer into the scene and to the barn. You might consider dodging the left side of the barn just a bit to pop the white of the windows so they are similar to the right of the barn. While perhaps unrealistic, I think it would pull the road's destination in a bit more and provide a nice white with the snow.

Lastly, I can't figure out what the vertical line is above the barn. Is it a tower of some sort? If you have the skills, I'd say get rid of it as the straightness catches the eye and distracts from the otherwise fluid and curving movement in the sky, road and fence line.

I found this to be a very beautiful piece.

Amazing. I can almost hear the whoosh of flame igniting. My camera can't take photos like that; I still have to upgrade a proper SLR at some point- in the meantime, I'll just have to enjoy everyone else's!

Amazing. Personally, I love to look at the sky in the mornings and evenings, just to see how the light looks. When the light shines off the bottom of the clouds like that, well that's when I especially love it. This is a perfect shot of a beautiful sky. Congratulations.

Wayyyyy to heavy with the tonemapping for my taste, I would be curious to see what it looks like with a more realistic approach instead of a grunge style. Just my 2¢
