Stunning color and great silhouettes..awesome image! #3878690

Kai Eiselein 1/27/2007 8:22:17 AM

Thanks, Cyn. It was your image "Eclipse", I think was the name, that got me to thinking...."Wait a minute, I've got some images like that.".... I was going to delete them, then gave them a second look after seeing yours. #3878734

Nikki McDonald 1/27/2007 8:56:18 AM

WOW. So glad you did not delete. This reminds me of a Japanese print but more intense. You have a haiku to go with it? #3878874

Jayne Martin 1/27/2007 11:11:09 AM

Wow, beautiful silhouette --- chicken bone, chicken bone -- LOL --!!! I'm glad you're not giving up. I love your gallery! #3879447

Kai--

Great work with this one. The comp is spot on, and the backlight effect works so well here. Just beautiful! #3963450

Kai Eiselein 2/19/2007 8:39:37 AM

Thanks, everyone. Believe it or not, despite using a zoom, there was no lens flare. In fact I only had flare in a couple of the 20 or so images I shot that evening. #3964537

HuHu Lin 3/20/2007 12:16:14 AM

cool silhouette,Kai #4072821

Ariel Lepor 4/27/2007 6:44:19 PM

Sun is blown out (I know this is a tough spot). Minor jpeg artifacts evident. Not really a wow shot, but nice. #4222756

Christopher J. Budny 4/28/2007 5:42:47 PM

I love the color in the sky, Kai, and the crispness of the sun against the sharp plants. I tried a similar sunset-behind-corn-plants shot, but it doesn't have the airiness of this, being that the corn is packed closed together in the field; I like this much better! #4225495

Sylvia Rossler 2/22/2008 2:26:31 PM

I remember of this beautiful picture Kai and I'm happy it finally made it to the finals !!! Congrats :O) #5532884

No digital manipulation here. The sky was red from forest fires in the area and I managed to get a shot,without flare, using a zoom lens.
