[Photo Scene info]
Well, it's nothing much I think..yesterday there was a marvellous sunset here..and I've been following it for a long time, taking several shots when time passed by. The sky was ever changing, I saw beautiful things yesterday..later on the sky turned red, it seemed as if everything was on fire. I might post a photo of that later. I hope this is one nice impression of what happened.
I just stepped out the door of my house and positioned the setting sun on the end of my street..in between the houses.
You can just see a bit of how the houses look like here..maybe you can learn that ;)
Hope you like it!
Well it's a bit a decisive moment, since the sky was changing, but I decided to rather add it to Daily Life & Nature..although I wished daily (nature) life was like that evening!

Usually not a big fan of sunset shots. But this one works for me. Of course, the colours are spectacular. But I also think you make good use of the dark street compositionally. It provides perspective.

Een goed oog voor detail in een doodgewone straat in een normale nieuwbouwwijk.
Heel mooi gezien Emiel.

Fantastic shot, especially since it was taken from your street! I love how you have captured lots of sky and the silhouetted building & trees below. Great POV with nice reflections on the windows. Great compositiona and well captured!

Nice shot, Emiel. The contrast and colors between the skay and the ground is captured very well. I like the slight blur of the clouds too.

Surprising light for this occasion. I like very much too this composition and this almost unreal sky.

"It's nothing much I think" zeg je in je note....nou, ik vind het heel wat hoor :-)
Dit is een prachtige foto, die zonsondergang is echt heel mooi, en de verschillende kleuren in de wolkenlucht heb je ook echt mooi vastgelegd.
Heel goed perspectief ook en goeie silhoutten.

love what the 10mm does here ... love your composition with this vertical frame fed by the houses .. sky is stunning .. especially the clouds.
Mondaychild (378) 2007-02-07 5:48
you found the right position ... you are lucky that there aren´t TOO many houses! The moment is also well chosen: it´s already a bit dark - but there is enough light to see how the houses look like. Especially the reflections of evening light in the windows are very impressive!

Well interesting shots can be made just out of your home. An interesting twist on shooting sunsets, you had this composition well thinked of. I like the one point perspective on potrait angle, the vast blue sky reading is well exposed. Sharpness is superb ;) Also the way the photo dictates the eye to look from foreground up. Nice wide angle shot!
All the best,

Just only a word: amazing shot!
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2007-04-13 10:55
Excellent quality, sunsets may appear cliche at times but you can say I am in love with such beautiful cliches:) Good use of the wide angle.

I see now why the Skyfreak part... ;)
Interesting compo and PoV here, with great setting colours!
Do I see the dog-star in the offing?

Hi Emiel, i like a lot the space of the sky here and the sun in that position..
VEry good dark areas, a composition really well balanced!
cdmonson (5244) 2007-06-26 13:49
Lovely shot here. You really captured a lovely sunset. I like the way you captured the houses on either side--how they kind of slope inwards. It draws the eye toward the sun and the horizon. Great job.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2007-09-13 17:07
I really like sunsets (as you can see on my gallery) and I have to say that this one is excellent. The way the colours go from yellow to deep blue is wonderful and the cloud pattern is very good. You also framed the sun very well with the houses and the tree. Well done.
