    You know - the last time I saw a scene like that was on the last night of my dive trip to Wakatobi. Thanks for bringing back fond memories, Chong. I wish I could see this every day.

    Hi Chong,

    Beautiful shot. I'd bet that if you could have waited around for about 20 minutes, that your beautiful sky would have turned to an even more dazzling mixture of yellow, red and dark blue as the sun dipped below the horizon. You have a good eye for composition!

    I agree. That one is put together in a way that uses the elements in the frame (land, trees, sky) to best advantage.

    The one thing I wondered about was how it would look by taking a bit off the top to take it to a 4 x 5 ratio. But that's just because it's an aspect ratio that I prefer.

    Thanks a lot for that lovely CiC Frank...I guess I have to try your suggestion and hope that I'll be able to do justice on it It is really nice to observe the surroundings first before firing away! Thank you for the tip Frank! Cheers!

    No, I was meaning to keep it in portrait orientation, but to crop some of the sky from the top of the picture. I think at the moment it is in a 2:3 portrait ratio. A 4:5 ratio would result in the ratio of width to height changing and the image becoming less 'tall and thin'.

    I hope you don't mind, but this is what I mean:

    Beautiful Sunset

    You may feel it cuts out too much of the sky.
