Hi all! Here's a shot I took yesterday in Porkala (a point just outside Helsinki in Finland) at sunset. Not that special a sunset but it was ok. The sun literally just disappeared behind the clouds there, and no nice colours after the disappearance, thus the title. Processed RAW in PS and added border.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM | Cokin X120 + X121 Graduated Grey | ISO100 | f/22 | 0.6secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Wonderful colour, right through to the green in the pool. Like the reflection of the sun leading the eye in too.

I have seen some amazing photos from Finland and it is great to see the images that you and some other Finish photos are putting on EPZ. These colours are very appealing!

What makes this for me is the green tint in the foreground water which adds some extra colours to the image. Very nice.
