Good morning....
Thank you for the wonderful response to yesterdays sunset and the Lynne (Drighlyne) Kate (Irishkate) and Kel (Kel55) for their UA's much appreciated
This is my last of my sunsets for the time being. Decided to make it into more of an abstract. V2 the bigger picture. The evening I captured this I was on my way to visit Rib in hospital. The sky turned this stunning orange. Not a cloud in the sky. I parked my car and ran down across the promenade to get these few shots as the sun popped into the sea.
Have a nice day....

V1 is a great minimalistic picture, built on 3 colors, a stunning picture. V2, a little less interesting, the see and the fence introducing some "real" into it. Congratulations for V1, a really impressive one!

Two beautiful images Colleen and since I like a little meat on my bones, I'm going for V2.
I'd even crop off the bottom and make a slender envelope with that perfect partial sun.
How great would that be in a toning room setting?

These in my opinion are superb abstract images love them both v2 is the more natural shot but both are very good , being a bit picky here and it's probably just personal taste but would like to see the boarder just a plain white or black , the orange does not enhance the shot . Your photography in my opinion is taking massive steps forward , classy shots
