Sunset by rhiannonphillips Sunset by rhiannonphillips
I was walking through the sand dunes this evening, and I got this shot just before the sun set :D

I like the shot. It is fairly simple, but the depth of field adds some character to the composition. I like the color in the shot, it pops fairly well I think with the overall lighting at the time of the shot. Personally, I wish I could be able to find more shots like this one. I wish I could be able to get shots like this myself!I you were using a dslr which I would assume you were, you can do so much with them without needing to use comlicated settings. But when they are in the hands of someone with real skill, great things tend to happen
What do you think?

It's a perfectly framed shot; the contrast is well defined and warmly set, the low Sun glows snugly like a chinese lantern at dusk and the diagonal cut of the one blade of grass captures and guides the eye across the scene.
As far as millions of photographs of sunsets and sunrises go, this fits the pattern properly, but it's also one of those hundreds which faithfully and immediately repeat and represent the nuanced and arresting beauty of such spectacle, with the added value of taking the humble view of a field mouse, a snoozing beetle or a human reporter with a good sense for things.

I can't really add much to what the two critiques have already said. I definitely like the point of view; not a typical sunset shot.
