I'd just finished taking sunsets when my husband suggest I include this light
in a sunset image, so it was handheld and kinda rushed.I'll await the verdict!
my thanks to you all for vs & cs for Island in the Lochan an da big thank you
to Cliff (Nikonuser1) for his precious User Award.

Handheld?GrinGrin
There is no law against it!
Tripods are for studio and garden, the rest of the world can use higher iso if needed.or open the diaphragm.
Seriously, it is a great composition.
All my photos are 'rushed'.
Never fiddle with too many things at a time. or too many rules, if the light is great and the opportunity is there.. Bird, human, a reflection, a ripple in the water...
Go for it. There and then. Light doesn't wait.
Here you forgot for once what the bloke in the club told you and followed your heart. Keep doing so.
One of your best.

An opportunity not to be missed, and you didn't miss it. I find it quite amusing that the lamp post seems to be sprouting branches.

Artificial lights against a sunset .... my type of photo. Beautiful sunset colours, Kate, and the slight 'fuzz' from the lamps gives a lovely painterly quality. Excellent stuff.
