    Urban Sunset, South Florida

    In this photo I was trying to capture the juxtaposition of this beautiful and firery sunset against a banal urban street setting. Comments welcomed.

    And I think you have succeeded in doing so.

    My only concern is that there may be too much banality and not enough sunset. It's one that would require a lot of thought compositionally. I love that tangle of poles and wires just above the closest car. I wonder if you were up closer to that and focusing attention in on them with the sunset behind, would produce a good image?

    I think this sums it up well. But it's an interesting idea and worth pursuing in a reshoot. To balance the competing elements, I think the sunset will need to constitute roughly half of the image- this one is just too small and not striking enough. Keep your lookout up and your camera handy!

    Re: Urban Sunset, South Florida (Alternative)

    Given some of the comments on my original photograph I decided to reveal a bit more of the scene, heighten the intensity of the sunset, and let the light from the sunset color the entire picture.

    Comments welcomed.
