Sunset Grass

As the sun set over Brisbane, I attempted to take some "arty" photos of the grass on top of Kangaroo Point Cliffs. Of the three shots that came out ok, this one is the one I like the best.

Taken during the 30th Sept Brisbanites Flickr meet at Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

See where this picture was taken.

    the grasses are circling the sun, very good, I like it a lot

    I would have cropped out that house thing though, didnt notice it till I went large !!!
    you could crop it 2 ways, just before the house or just with the sun and the grass, rectangular, that would be really good... only my opinion of course

    I think it's part of the university over the river, but yeah, now you mention it, that does detract a bit from the horizon.

    Thanks Daniel (or is it Anita?). I think this one and the previous one (with the leaves) are my best two shots of the meet.

    David, this is lovely. I like the low hanging clouds. The grasses are great... I like getting down low for arty shots like this too. Beautiful colours. Alison

    Thanks Alison, Hmmm, I looked at cropping, haven't got around to it yet, thought maybe a bit further to the left. Might play with it later and see how it comes out...
