    I went picture happy tonight and snapped off about 60 pics of tonight's sunset on my digital P&S as well as 20 on my film P&S (didn't have anymore film for my "good" camera). It's difficult choosing the best out of the bunch off my digital but here's a few of them.

    An 'oops' shot - I had the automatic flash set and this is what it captured. This one is my hubby's favorite.:er:

    The way it was supposed to look.

    And one more - I think this is my favorite out of the digital ones.

    I didn't edit them at all, this is how they came out of the camera. :D

    As always comments are welcome!! ;)

    If you can spot focus - go for the brightest point and this will give the black foreground and dramatic colours in the clouds without burning anything out.

    I'm assuming what you're talking about by "spot focus" is point your camera towards the brightest point (in the case of a sunset that would be the sun) which forces the camera to pick the settings for bright light. But wouldn't that prevent the film from being able to pick up the subtle light shading in the clouds?

    I got my film developed and I looked through all the shots from there. I must say there's one that stands out amongst all the one's that I took.

    What do ya think?
