[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I saw the colour in the sky I just had to take this sunset. I did not expect it to come out as I had no tripod and it was a long exposure. Out of three frames this was the sharpest. I guess I got lucky.
Taken standing on the mound by Hastings Castle at about nine thirty pm. Fuji Sensia.

Boy you just gotta ove a film that captures this kind of color, dontcha?! Nice shot, Guy...although I acn see it was quite late in the evening and dark, there is not really any contrast between the silhouetted house, side of the castle mound which I suspect is in the foreground, and the cityscape beyond (it would add better depth) I like the house windowlights, city lights and brilliantly coloured sky though.

Lovely colours and a striking composition, providing a contrast between the beauty of natures light show and the man made lights in the windows.

I might have been tempted to do a bit of perspective correction to level out the horizon.
