    You don't have to go far to find photos, the first two are basically from my front porch, and the third from our backyard :)

    I hope you enjoy. btw, Scott, sorry you missed the sunset because of me. If it makes you feel any better, you can talk to my boss. :)

    This sunset is exactly what I needed after the kind of day I had, absolutely stunning.

    For this one, the only PS work I did was curves and sharpen. The first 2 did go through Neat Image, because I forgot I was on ISO 1600

    This second one is truly what the sunset looked like, I've never seen so many beautiful colors

    This last one is from a few nights ago, when there was the most lovely cloud formation. I had to crop it because my house and some trees showed up on the sides

    Thanks, I could hardly believe my eyes when I stepped outside :)
    Scott, It looks like I need to buy an @$$-plate. I wonder how much those are...
    Marissa, wow, that is quite a compliment! Thanks so much :)
    Ernie, many thanks to you as well

    Very good, the clouds look great, nice and sharp with good color.

    I normally love the range of colors that are shown in Palette, but On Fire is really grabbing me. Absolutely beautiful.

    And I wish I had your talent for titles!

    Thanks everyone :)
    Talent for titles? I always think they're a bit cheesy myself, but if you say so! ;)

    Wow, what a beautiful sunset! Love those oranges of the sky. It is on fire! I'm torn between which of the first two I like more... but hey, they're all great so who needs to choose right! Great job!
