Haleiwa, Oahu island, Hawaii
One of my first photos ever. It was taken at the beachside car parking where I sat on the top of my vehicle to frame a bunch of cars out of the picture.
And of course, bang, I shot straight against the Sun, having bought my first camera the day before. :-)

Good idea the explanations in which conditions you've taken this shot... very nice light and colors. Perhaps is the sun too centered here but this photo really well works for me.

Regarding your 'too many sunsets' question: Well I for one despise sunset-shots. The demands for a good sunset pic is the same as those for a good pic. A motive proper, an interesting composition and all that. Pretty colours ain't enough, but one tends to forget when one is in the midst of it all. The result (for me anyways) is an endless aray of immensly boring sunset pics.
That being said I think this ones got a lot going for it. Great use of the silhouettes which exploit the diagonal from upper right to left low. The, certainly-against-the rules, centered composition is very effective here and yes - the colours rock! I even like the lens flare so you get full marks froma sunset-hater. Not bad huh?
