An experiment in light control. I wanted to see if by using the exposure control. I could turn an ordinary sunset into something that would pop. By the responce I have gotten I guess it worked.

This is a really nice shot overall. However, while the color pops, and the clouds and trees are great, there's something about it that doesn't click for me. In the spirit of our "landscape class", I'll try to explain, but here I am having more trouble than usual isolating it, so I'll free associate a bit. At first, it looked a bit unclear, but staring more, it's reasonable for this size. The building edge seems more out of place, but I do like the trees on the bottom right. The left lower side of the shot is perhaps a tad too dark. And something about the clouds in the upper left--their color, or perhaps it's that they appear a bit blurry here and they are somewhat dominant.

Actually, I think analyzing this photo would be a great "class" exercise, because I'd love to see how others break it down in hits and misses (often, I break down photos this way...this aspect is a hit, this is a miss, etc.).

Good shot what would make this a great shot is to include some interesting elements into it beside the sky.

I love this time of the day...the light just catches the clouds just right and you've done a great job capturing that light. Skies are the best show in town. I'd probably be tempted to play with it even more to bring up the contrast in light and dark a bit, but that's just my tastes and some would probably consider that overdone.

There are just so many things going on but they all work so well together. I like the fact that you can't see the sun only the light projected/reflected by it. Beautiful shot.

I know some people call sunset photos cliche, but they are one of my absolute favorites. This is no exception. Yes it IS the exception in that it is absolutey perfect!! The light, the depth of color, all super!!
