I love taking sunset photos. I know many of us love to take shots of sunsets. Perhaps its because they are the best examples of beauty and life. Perhaps they’re a challenge to take given the small window of time during which the sun sets.
Here is some tips I came across about shooting beautiful sunset photos @ basic-digital-photography.com
:: Get a Full View ::
When shooting sunsets, it’s important to position yourself so that you get a full view of the sunset. Another good idea is to catch the sun reflecting off water. I also like to photograph the sun setting between the leaves of trees. Think about different, creative ways of viewing a sunset. It will help enhance the beauty of your shots.
Here’s another tip for shooting sunset photos. Keep shooting! This is very important because there is only a small time window during which the sun sets.
When shooting sunset photos, clouds make a nice backdrop. Clouds add color and texture to an otherwise uninteresting photo.

I love the rays of the sunlight, which fill the frame well. Also the composition of the shot is nice, the buildings don't distract and give a nice foundation for the sunset. TFS
Please see what you think of my sunset posts
Have a nice day.
