    Taken last night around 11:30 pm in Porsön/Luleå ... again 2 minutes walk from my doorstep.
    Same location as : http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84420

    The weather was alot different from last time. So here comes the sunset in three formats ;).

    Don't ban me for sunset-spamming ;)

    1: water and vegetation

    Well, that pano is a crop from one image. so there are no artificial sections. those lines on the water are real and result from the smeared reflections of the sky. you can see lots of those lines in all three images and you could see them on the spot with your eyes.

    since you did not know how it was created, you could not know :)

    this optical effect is quite common whenever there are ripples on the water and you have some high contrast structure in the sky.

    thanks anyway :)

    What a beautiful sight! They are all gorgeous, but I really like the 'vegetation' in shot 1. And as Tangerini said, with sunsets like these, 'spam away'!

    Sweet Alex ... and what time was this sunset? Personally, I might crop a bit off the top in number one ... the gray clouds don't add a lot to the image and the crop would help move the heavy black shoreline away from the center.

    Although the pano is wonderful ... the closeness of the reeds in #1 just draws you into the image in a much more personal fashion. #1 for me.

    #2 may just be the best I've seen all year so far.

    As posted ... 11:30-ish ... at night.

    Thought of the same, but just could not decide to do it ;)

    I know, the vegetation does help the image alot... it is a shame i could not get a pano that style ... the position of the sun and the water just did not allow for it.

    don't be silly ;)

    it is just a very different sunset... and I like the soft clouds in yours, much more calm than mine here.

    Also, my current doorstep seems to be just perfect for this kind of shots ... could do it almost every second night ... almost without leaving the house ;)
