For what it's worth, I did no post processing on this photo other than resize for the challenge. The colors are as they came from the camera.

killer sunset, I wish the city was a bit lighter tho'
03/17/2009 05:32:42 PM
Definitely! I see lots of skies like that here, but I'm usually too late to catch it. Nice city scene also.
03/17/2009 02:03:51 PM
I love lacy sunrises like this that kiss the bottom of clouds. I think you've pushed the reds a bit far though. 6
03/17/2009 06:23:11 AM
Lovely...looks like the sky is on fire.
03/16/2009 11:00:44 PM
Looks to be a nice sunset, but the sky looks overprocessed.
03/16/2009 08:59:10 PM
Beautiful clouds; wish the ground was a bit more visible.
03/16/2009 08:29:33 AM
the city is a bit too dark
03/16/2009 04:06:13 AM
nice shot
03/16/2009 03:04:20 AM
Aptly titled. Well captured and presented.
03/16/2009 02:46:41 AM
Skyfire! cool
03/15/2009 10:17:49 PM
What a great title for this gem of a photo.
03/15/2009 10:11:48 PM
What a great catch!
03/15/2009 09:59:44 PM
Good advice!! Nice image.
03/15/2009 09:17:22 PM
Looks a bit over something - the blotches of color on the bottom of the clouds do not seem to retain their shapes. Interesting effect of an almost flat sheet of light from the sunset, with untouched clouds above.
03/15/2009 09:08:36 PM
too heavy on the reds for my taste
03/15/2009 11:59:59 AM
What a beautiful sky.....maybe just a bit oversaturated?
03/15/2009 08:32:58 AM
The sky is awesome and dominates the theme. I would like the city just a little lighter to balance the picture. Too bad there weren't more lights on in the buildings.
03/15/2009 05:25:09 AM
well we should have too
pretty nice
03/15/2009 03:46:33 AM
lovely sunset , unfortunate that the foregound does not have enough impact,
03/14/2009 10:50:02 PM
indeed that is the dpc motto:) lovely pink, seems almost painted on the sky
03/14/2009 09:07:45 PM
Your not kidding, Love the sky.
03/14/2009 06:02:02 PM
Looks kinda like the end of the world.
03/14/2009 03:41:58 PM
Pretty sunset, even without the over contrast.
03/14/2009 11:31:49 AM
Dramatic. A little darker would keep the sky in range better.
03/14/2009 11:00:10 AM
ya but it appears that your colors are pushed to much in the sky...they look blotchy
03/13/2009 06:05:11 PM
Good timing, to capture those colors in the sky.
03/13/2009 02:30:54 PM
the sky looks funky.. the gray clouds flat
03/13/2009 02:26:15 PM
Great sky!
03/13/2009 02:05:45 PM
ain't that the truth! is this one post shot saturated?
03/13/2009 01:34:35 PM
Fire in the sky. I love how far out the color extends from the horizon. Almost like watching a bomb go off in the distance.
03/13/2009 12:36:32 PM
Very dramatic sky against the dark foreground. Nice use of colors/textures.
03/13/2009 12:11:31 PM
The sky is really quite amazing, but the colors feel over saturated.
03/13/2009 08:30:09 AM
Well and truly afire in the sky! Nice shot.
03/13/2009 12:28:20 AM
Over processed. It looks good at first glance, and then the photo just appears tacky.
03/12/2009 09:41:48 PM
Nuclear sunset - nice capture.
03/12/2009 08:23:26 PM
03/12/2009 07:54:36 PM
incredible sky, I'm glad you had that camera handy
03/12/2009 04:08:55 PM
A bit too saturated and dark.
03/12/2009 10:03:26 AM
thats a bright red sky
03/12/2009 09:33:35 AM
Great sky shot. I wish the bottom third were a tad brighter.
03/12/2009 12:10:32 AM
Good dramatic sky.
03/11/2009 11:54:58 PM
the actually looks kind of fake, sorry.
03/11/2009 09:39:00 PM
This looks like a typical sunset in my town. I am in the habit of snapping photos of these beautiful skies. I like your photo, very nice. I like the POV.
03/11/2009 09:35:06 PM
um, no... =)
03/11/2009 09:05:27 PM
Lovely sky! I wish we could either see more or less of the town, for drama. As is it's a bit drab. *sorry*

Not voting yet.
03/11/2009 08:31:14 PM
Excellent capture of the clouds/sky.
03/11/2009 07:13:15 PM
a bit too much PP for my taste
03/11/2009 07:10:45 PM
needs a little more light on the city, but I am definitely a fan of sunsets with clouds
03/11/2009 04:42:12 PM
I wish I could see more of the city. The sky is a little to red for me. I think I would have dodged the city to come through more and it would have given it more interest.
03/11/2009 03:01:53 PM
great sky textures, but the city is a little too dark.
03/11/2009 02:25:46 PM
Amazing colors!
03/11/2009 12:29:17 PM
Fire in the sky. Wish there were more exposure on the town.
03/11/2009 10:15:14 AM
The city is too dark.
03/11/2009 09:59:25 AM
I definitely agree with you! Nicely done!
03/11/2009 09:48:28 AM
Always have a camera handy for the camera candy.
03/11/2009 08:22:09 AM
Ouch you've overcooked this sky terribly :-(
03/11/2009 07:37:48 AM
Beautiful red sky. Foreground is very dark.
03/11/2009 05:41:57 AM
Sorry this is just a mess of colours and over-processing.
03/11/2009 05:37:44 AM
Great skies but foreground is too dark.
03/11/2009 04:38:19 AM
Whoa, thats some spooky looking sky!
03/11/2009 01:26:48 AM
Glad you had your camera ready, you wouldn't want to miss that! Your viewpoint helps too.
