Default Oh, if only I had my tripod with me

Hi fellow Pentaxians. Wish I had my tripod with me this evening for the sunset, which now sets here in central Finland around 10:25. No more midnight sun for this year, but there is still a lot of sunlight.

A beautiful shot - who needs a tripod if you get something like that? Love the colors.

Beautiful!

I'm still learning how to get decent silhouettes.

Definitely darker Ned - that's a gorgeous shot. However I'd definitely trim the dark edge off the bottom to the lake.

Like the crop Ned - the pier now leads out beautifully from the lower right ... leading to the person, who is just about on the lower left cross of the Rule of Thirds. Personally I prefer the original darker version.
