    Thought I would share the sunset from the other night :)
    As per usual unsure about the crop on this one, it lends itself to a vertical crop I think... but there is too much black cloud above so went with a wide shot.
    C&C always welcome!

    Nicely done. A very strong sunset. Colors are tremendous. No way would I have even thought about a vertical crop. If anything, I would even crop out a little more of the upper black clouds. Masked some of it on my monitor, and it just jumps right out at you.

    Thanks Joel :) I had three crops to choose from one taller, this one, and one shorter lol guess I may have chosen the wrong one ( surprising I know :p )

    I'll post the other crop when I'm back on the laptop.

    Great shot and I agree with Joel, crop out about (or aboot as you would say ;) ) 1/2 of the black sky and it really pops ! Sunset are one of my favorite things to photograph.

    Thanks Nod :)

    I love them too but struggle editing them because they often look "unrealistic" to me after lol

    Here is the shorter crop:

    Very nice.

    Your shorter crop is much better IMO.

    Wow !! What a difference in your crop. It's a 100% stronger of a composition. Now the red sunset just grabs you and pulls you into the photograph. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
