Default My backyard sunset (FZ150)

I've posted sunsets from my backyard in the past. Certain time of the year (usually in the fall), we get some really nice sunsets! This is from a few weeks ago, I did PP out one power pole that was unsightly. This is just a few minutes outside of Los Angeles!

You have a really nice view and you did a great job capturing the beauty of this sunset.

Great shot, love those crepuscular rays, I think that is the word.

Good shot. You said in another thread you had no success in making "Sunset" mode work. Was this one shot in "Sunset" mode, or other?

Perhaps the palms in the middle are a distraction. You have the sun at the third line, but those four palms tend to draw the eye too strongly.

Thank you Grounded and Roger!!

Roger - I shot this in P-mode. Metered off the bright part of the sunset to darken the overall shot. I then applied a bit of PP, to remove one telephone pole and adjust the exposure to bring out the sun rays. I did not pay attention to the palm trees, but that would be pretty challenging to remove them (and that one tree to the left), I'm not sure if I can do that successfully....
