    The sun setting across the Trent Valley, although the scene looks warm.. it isn't, it was pretty windy and cold!

      Really fiery. Is that how it was, or have you enhanced it??

        Nope! The only thing I do is to crop it to my preferred size of 1500 x 1125 and "maybe" an adjustment if needed onboard the camera such as contrast, saturation, noise or brightness for certain photos. I usually stay on the settings I'm happy with, although this ISO & shutter thing still annoys me from time to time.
        The valley has a good layout for bouncing and bending light over and around it, quite how that works I haven't a clue!
        There was one I took that looked like a wall of fire rearing up at you. I have had all kinds of surprises with sunrises and sunsets, some say that the string of power stations have some sort of effect on the weather and other conditions. How true? I'm not that clever! lol

          Just remarkable. So there's something to be said for power stations, after all!

              All three are beautiful, Wesley, but my favourite is the first one because of its delicacy.

              Do you really stay in bed all day Sundays, you lazy little .......... Just see what you've been missing all these years.

                Now that's a lovely scenery worth getting up for, beautiful colours!
                Ah! Don't worry Wesley. I didn't get up myself until 8:45am, although I didn't get to my pit until 4am this morning. lol
                Ooops! You didn't hear that Ivy....

                  This is indeed the best one, from a photographical aspect of things. The tree placed 1/3 from the edge is making it very harmonic, and with the detail of surrounding landscape, it's beautiful.

                          J-O we agree once more on a favourite. Well, well!
                          As you have probably realised, I go for subtlety, and that's what appeals to me here. There is light, a beautiful light, but the actual source is merely suggested, not shown, and expresses itself in such a beautiful gradation from left to right. Against that gentle but so effective background the delicacy of the trees is superb, and as you say, the placing of the one tree nearer the foreground is just right.

                            In photography, I always read and learned about the Rule of Thirds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds

                            But, a true experimental photographer, dares avoid these rules and actually make it work.

                              Lovely work, Wesley! Sometimes it's worth getting up!

                                Yes, the thirds rule is always quoted at beginners in any form of pictorial art, like where to place your vanishing point. In Wesley's photo that tree is in the left third. I have not followed your URL, but if I remember correctly it is on the point of intersection of the lines that the thirds rule says the object should be placed. To be pedantically precise, only the right edge of the tree fulfils that requirement. But other things must be taken into consideration, mustn't they? By placing it where it is, and well to the left, it is so beautifully balanced by the long delicate tracery of the other trees in the distance, and its mass is also in delightful contrast to the glow coming from the unseen source of light just above and to the left.
                                To Wesley it "looked right" and so it is. I agree, experiment and "adjust" what the book tells you, use your own judgement and daring and see what comes.
