I was not happy with the tree at right cutting the big red rock in half, which is the view you get at the main carpark, so I walked a kilometre or so along this track until the tree was way over to the right of the rock. I also tried disguising my shadow. The sunset itself was a disappointment. Not so much colour & all too brief, but I enjoyed walking around the rock up close the next day.

This is an unusual point of view on this famous rock and one that is very well chosen. I like the way the road is used to draw the viewer into the image and the long shadows cast by the fence posts. The lovely warm tones of the landscape contrast beautifully with the pale blue sky. Excellent clarity.

Good try, well-planned composition of the way and the mountain in the center. But the light is too hard, I mean that too strong, because the resulting large shadows and strong contrast of the foreground. In my opinion this is minus the pictures. If you can, go back to that place in the so-called golden hour and try again. I guarantee that it will be much better.

I wonder if this is a liitle bit overexposed on the red rock,the colors seems a little bit too pale on my screen.But I love the warm light and the long shadows of the foreground,giving a splendid warm atmosphere.And of course,this wild landscape is supperb.

A superb view that you went out of your way to get and resulted in something a little out of the usual. I'm sad you didn't get your spectacular sunset, but hopefully you can return one day and everything will be as you want it. Excellent shot, love those dusky Australian colours.
Have a great day

The distance between the path and the rock is giving depth to the compostion. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Uluru Rock. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
