Taken going up the motorway to Liverpool for a family funeral. Taken through the windscreen with my Nikon Coolpix P50. Took quite a few but this was the best.

Very effective. My recommendation as you ask for it, would be to have shot lower. Where the top cloud comes in from the left, should be the top of your image. The different colour of sky above that line of cloud looks almost out of place for me. Ryan
Very nice low light shot...
May need a tighter crop..
There a lot of dark area and plain sky...
If you crop tighter in the sun set area I think you will make the shot stronger.....
Thanks all. Have taken advise and done a tighter crop.
Very nice shot. I prefer the 2nd image, it has more impact.
Hello, Susan. Under the circumstances, you did well here. Although your crop is a great improvement, I would have also cropped some from the left. I have done a modification and will put it up, but I am in no way happy with it. Firstly, the large expanse of burn-out was impossible to remove. For the future, when you want to photograph a sunset, try to be patient and allow the sun to sink below the horizon because this prevents the glare. You can get away with some of the sun showing at times, and it's so tempting to snap away because the colours are so beautiful. Use ISO100 and a fast shutter speed. It's also worth choosing your foreground so that you have some interesting silhouettes against the colourful sky. A clever idea is to position something in front of the descending sun. In this instance, you were extremely limited with your viewpoint, however. In my mod, I removed the "noise" from the sky, used the perspective tool to straighten the lights, cropped the top and left, adjusted shadows and highlights, coloured the white area a little and adjusted the levels. I think the crop and straightening are the main elements that I wanted to show you here. There are white halos around the lamps and tops of the trees, which can be caused by sharpening. So I didn't sharpen it any more.
This work very well..number two for me also....
