Amsterdam Airport Schiphol last night around 15 minutes after sunset.
The distance from my standpoint to the control tower is circa 2500m. I used a monopod balanced against a fence to stabilise my camera.
The title with the photo comes from the TV commercial which Schiphol is frequently airing here in the Netherlands at the moment to promote their shopping facilities.

Fine capture Harko, the golden colors are magical when mixed with the points of light from the structures. Great work.

Beautiful shot, I like the panoramic view. Such a beautiful colors of the sunset, and very dramatic sky, with dark clouds looming above yet, plenty of light on the horizon to illuminated the sky with golden tone. The spakles of the city light in the dark sihouettes of buildings are beautiful in variousl colors. Good work. I wish there is an airplan closer to dominate the image a little bit more.

Wonderful cityscape composition at evening time with excellent light management and lovely colors. I like the city lights and the cloudy sky a lot.
Kind regards, Vasilis.
