A City Sunset
Across the roof-tops of the town
I saw the flaming sun go down;
For some, another day of tears
Lay buried in the hurrying years.
The shadows folded; here and there
A yellow light began to flare.
For some, another golden day
Of gladness sped upon its way
by Charles Hanson Towne, 1908

love this photo, Maryori, especially the golden red colour cast, just the right touch of magic, and goes well with the poem. perspective is great, it immediately draws the eye in, while the single bright light is the perfect accent to the scene. romantic, philosophical, dreamy shot, I like it a lot.

Nature can be so beautiful, never fails to delight us even on each passing day this sunset blankets our evening with its glorious light. Nice capture, steady hands on that G9, very inspiring shot.

Hi Maryori ,
a nice colored one, the fence is making a good strong diagonal.

I am amazed with Florida every time I see your photos.Each photo is unique in terms of presentation ideas,viewing angle,notes,colors,resolution.And this one is a no exception of the rule :-)
Beautiful warm colors, curved perspective and lanthorn as a strong accent to the photo.
Great work Maryori!

una de las mejores fotografías que has publicado! Me gusta no sólo la perspectiva, sinó también la tonalidad y esas luces!

what a nice perspective and POV of this superb sunset scene!The subdued light, with the sun still painting pastoral colours in the clouds makes this a memorable shot.Excellent the management of the low light conditions.Well done.

This show you how people are infatuated with strong and intense color, this one recieve much more attention in some of your other shot, and a well deserved attention. I notice your night shots are much better than when I first started critiquing your work. Congratulations. I think you've come such a long way, I'm not really great at night shot myself, I think Jie is really wonderful with night shot. I'm just too lazy to set up tripod and carry it around with me all the time. This is really lovely with brilliant colors and good composition and the noise level is undercontroll. Thanks and a Big hug.

A beautiful sunset in the city showing a great color tone and mood of the evening light. Not easy to compose a city view and your framing of the railing as FG feature works well here. The single street lamp here seems to compete with the natural light for attention.

great nightshot with beautiful colors. Interesting POV and good depth. Very good composition. Congratulations.

Hello Maryori! A humid and hot evening in Miami comes to my mind when I look at your photo although I have never been there ... as you know :))) I love the traffic that moves through without actually seeing it, fast and furious driving into town I guess. I love the railing on the side and how the street lamp reflects, and I guess this is the special thing in your photo, this warm orangy light on the railing. Very good, Maryori, you know how to play with evening light and what to make with it. Have a wonderful Saturday, Barbara.

Have a good day and TFS

J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de ce ciel, et cette superbe composition.

The long night time look across the bridge adds wonderful depth to this beautiful view of downtown Miami.
The gold and yellow sky is wonderfully complimented by the blue of the wispy clouds.
batalay (35559) 2009-04-01 17:08
A beautiful example of light management. I like the one point-perspective you have demonstrated in the composition. The colors are ethereal. Warm regards,

No puedo dejar pasar sin hacer un comentario sobre ésta magnifica toma nocturna. Me agrada mucho la perspectiva que has capturado, el dramatismo del cielo en el horizonte destaca altamente con la ciudad a lo lejos.
Cada elemento se detalla con nitidez, lo que da a entender que la exposición ha sido bien trabajada. Felicitaciones.

i'm really glad you still didn't give up on me :)
I would love to come on a meeting to meet you but yes...you are quite far away.
Until this is possible for me i will try to spent more time on pages of TE and i do not think that will be to hard since i have so many photos in front of me that are simply fantastic. This one surely is one of them, no doubt!
I love how you chosen your angle with fence leading towards the city scape of light on breathtaking red orange canvas. The result is stunning, a real joy to look at and goes wonderfully with the lyrics.
my very best regards,

The glowing of colours what makes it the star of the sunset, you're lucky to live in such tropical place.
