Challenge #34

Sunsets & Sunrises


A poster here has asked if it is OK to post Sunrises. So due to this person or persons, due to time constraints, Sunrise's are also acceptable. After all its just a reverse sunset. I only ask that rule #2 be adhered to.



If a moderator would be so kind as to change the thread Challenge to include the word sunrise, I'm guessing it would be appreciated by many.

I absolutely love a good sunset. While I have seen many of them posted during my tenure here, I have only seen a mere handful that I thought were absolutely fabulous. So the challenge to you, is show me a drop dead out of this world sunset that has not been posted on this site. The only shots that are acceptable are shots taken in this time frame for the week. If I have already seen it here (trust me, if it was posted I seen it) it will be automatically disqualified. After all, the whole point is to get out there and get to shooting. I also realize it's cold out there for most of us in the evenings, and that time frames of work and free time might be a little bit conflicting, but that will make it more of a challenge.

Make me go WOW and happy shooting.

I know it was a hard week to get in a good sunset or sunrise this week. I did not expect the weather pattern to totally block a decent lowering or rising of the sun. I also expected pics from around the world.

So with only four entrants to judge from, this was rather easy. I expected quite a few more......... :(

So, The winner is........ and I did search for the date and found it valid....

This shot is without a doubt the winner. It has excellent detail to the ripples in the water that leads the eye to a gorgeous sunset. Even tho it lacks good cloud formations in it, the colors are just outstanding.

Congratulations Cindy32550, you are up.

I am soooo very humbled here. I am such a newbie with DSLR. Thank you so very much BASmith! New 28-135mm IS lens is serving me well it seems. I have horrific camera shake. Congrats to all past, and future winners of the challenge. Will post a new one in a few. Had a tornado here this morning, no damage for me thankfully, but had not even checked here. Again, thanks! :)
Nice surprise after a harrowing morn.

Yes it was. Am in the Tampa Bay area now working. I live in the panhandle of FL. Destin area. We have canes there, not many tornado's. Give me a cane any time! Of course, this was faster though. ;) New challenge coming up. Hope it meets everyones expectations.
