Sunset. Again.

The specific subject matter is a cut above the rest. Obviously a gorgeous sun but you have also managed to keep some blue in the peeping through sky. I don't know how much digital processing you've applied but the colours coupled with the sun's halo and sunburst seem perfect. With a picture like this, busy and plenty of detail, excellent point of focus and depth of field are the order of the day. Forest photos invite perusal and contemplation and when blown up and on a wall they can be a disappointment if the eye sees smudged, out of focus areas. You've done well giving nice foreground space with the attraction of the glowing tree stumps finishing it off nicely. Trees can lengthen a vertical picture and this effect can snow ball or atrophy with extra crowding.
Good work grasshopper!

Please note that im no proffessional and this is my first critique :)
Its apparent that you chose a simple and fitting title thats visibly relevant to the photo and very clearly expresses it. Everything, (the trees being the main concern) are very nicely spaced. You see a lot of photos with uncomfortable denseness, whereis the trees are crowded and crunched and just really hard to look at, which isnt the case here. There's a clean balance between leaves and breaks in the sky letting in the sun rays, and a little blue. It isnt blinding which is obviously important because everyone likes to have some sense of they're looking at. If it were all light and no forest the title would be totally redundant, and lastly the foreground has the gentle clutter that builds up in autumn thats not to much and calming to look at. The photo captures the moment quite well and i really enjoy it. Id like to point out that the title can really play a large part in how it comes off so nice job. As a whole youve done a stand up job.

Interesting detail of the trees.

What this does for me is unusual, but the sun in the background draws me back to the trees in the foreground.

Usually it's the opposite in compositions, but I like this one especially because of

 it's very uniqueness.

You have a natural talent for photography , and especially an eye for composition that deals with nature.
