I had a wonderful few days up in North Yorkshire Last week, including an evening in Whitby on the longest day of the year. The sunset was a pleasant one and then it just got better and better. This shot of those we'll known 99 steps was taken nearly 20 mins after the sun had set, and is almost straight out of camera.

The sky is beautiful but think I may have sacrificed a little of it to draw attention to the harbour inlet and steps. A lovely composition.

Thanks for your comments.

Joan, Interestingly I now normally compose in camera for a 3x4 ratio, and thus would normally be cropping slightly of the top or bottom. In this case I have left it as the top element of the sky is clearly spectacular. However, I had already cropped as you mention, and it does work. Smile

What a beautiful sunset with such rich tones across the sky, and yet you have captured such excellent detail in the more shadowed f/g areas. I like both versions, but I do think V 2 does carry a bit more impact. Lovely work.

V2 for me. The sky's brilliant but I prefer the crop as it seems more balanced.

Damn, I didn't miss much then! :-(

That is quite some sky can't even remember when I last saw on like that. V2 is more balanced but if it was me I don't think I could bear cutting off any of that sky Smile

@ Adam, yes the lamp is definitely is an important element, However, I could kick myself for not moving a foot to the left, so not to cut the second one in half.

@ Den, first night there I did feel very lucky! I had such a great few days, the coast there is so dramatic, and Whitby really is a perfect resort to photograph.

nice capture Eli

didn't notice the second lamp post till you pointed it out but agree just a couple of feet either side sometimes makes all the difference.
