[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sun just vanishing behind the horizon is always a great moment and for this particular shot it was taken from my third floor flat looking across to Richmond park.

I was hoping I might get a bird fly across before the sun completely disappeared, fortunately I did!

No changes were made to saturation or colour, this sky was really burning up!

PP: Crop, sharpen, frame.

Hi Simon,
Unlike the many cliche sunsets, I like yours for the silhouettes, the partly viisble sun and, of course, the bird. Richmond Park offers many photographic opportunities. You have seized one masterfully. Very well done.
Regards,
Hakan

Very good colours and very good composition, beautiful sunset picture with beautiful silhouettes, I like the bird's silhouette.

Simon, this is really very beautiful.

Great contrast, saturation and colors; lovely shades of red all around. I enjoy composition too.

Hi Simon, a really beautiful shot of this sunset. The burning sun disapearing on the horizon is spectacular. Wonderful warm colours with great tone and colour. The silouette of the tree on the left adds to this great composition. Good exposure.

Hi Simon

Truely touching! The moment you captured here is splendid and the composition you managed it wondeful.
The tree on the left looks great, the position of the sun in the frame is impeccable and the inclusion of the little in-flight bird is the cherry on top of the cake.
The exposure is spot-on and the colors and tones it resulted in are outstanding!
Great work!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Simon.
Very expressive sky image with great delicateness of the colour tones. Composition is perfect too as well as the sharpness (DOF) of the picture. My compliments and best regards.
