I had to capture this amzing sunset which was over my village on Monday night.

Shot in Raw and pulled the colours from the sky out.

All comments Crit and advice appreciated.

Great colours in that sky to strengthen the shot I might be tempted to crop a bit of the bottom off.

Thanks for the comments. Agreed about the crop too...didnt really think about it at the time, concentrated more on the colours. Cheers for the advice.

Great shot Anil lovely colour. Instead of cropping why not drag the bottom down to extend the sky more

I think I got a photo of the same sunset the other day. It was definitely worthy of a few photos. I prefer your effort than mine :-P
