Default FZ35 - Orchard at sunset

I had an opportunity to visit a local orchard near the time of sunset. A few were when the sun was still well off the horizon. I waited until the sun moved lower and started shooting. All sunset shots were taken in SCN-Sunset mode, EV -1 or -2. Slight, or no cropping.

I've taken many sunset shots recently, and have found Sunset mode works better than any settings I can make.

Number 3 is a winner. Nice composition.

Yes, 3 and 4 are fabulous! Really great shots. I've never had any luck with the Sunset Mode, but obviously you do!

Absolutely amazing shots, good job. I love #1! I wish the panny's could take the glare shots with out the 4 dots on the tips of the rays, I have that happen with my sunset shots also!

Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate the feedback.

I like the composition of #1, but not the lighting. The clouds were too thick at this point to get good light on the trees.

And, I agree with some others, #4 is a good shot.

This location is only about a mile away, but this is my first visit there. We have had other evenings with better cloud patterns, and lighting, than those in these images. But, I've been working and not been able to get into position for pics those evenings.

... just keep trying.
