    Very nice. Did you do a bit of PP or is WYSIWYG?

    I had to rotate the images a bit(not even). I added +1 contrast to both. Interesting how waiting just 5 minutes goes from a yellow-orange sunset and clouds to a reddish orange sunset and clouds.

    Sorry I had to ask. We get some amazing sunsets from time to time, and I rarely do any PP to my photos as well. But, it's funny how many people are surprised that my images were not "photoshopped" when they see them. People seem to be losing faith in the capacity of mother nature's ability to dazzle and display, without the use of a computer, and I suspect that places like 500px are not helping matters.

    Sunsets can have all sorts of colors, and waiting just a few minutes can mean having a nice sunset to a spectacular one. Sunsets also sometimes hose up the auto white balance on some cameras making them either too orange or too yellow.

    It might be just another sunset from your backyard, but it's a very nice one though.
