Hi everyone. In East London we have been hit full on by winter with some says being about 18 degrees C. I know thats not very cold, but winter does cause beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Let me know what you think...

I like the first two pics alot. The thrid looks a little dark. But then taking pics of light and dark is a pain.

What were the camera settings on the pics?

I live in JHB and have discovered that the "nice" pollution layer makes for very nice late afternoon pics. I will be going to play this afternoon.

In general with taking pics of sunsets how does one stop the picture from being over or under exposed?

Thanks for the comment and I look forward to seeing your pics. Generally I try expose for the sun and then lighten the land/sea with photoshop. Its far easier correcting underexposure then overexposure. Another thing you can try is set your camera on a tripod and use bracketing to take 3 pics at different exposures and then combine them inPS.

:idea:Good idea on the exposure bracketing. I will try that next time. Went to go take pics this afternoon and was concentrating on learning A setting so many came out fuzzy. not enough light to take action shots with good depth of field. oh well i learn and taking photos is free.

This is one of my early attempts at a sunset.
