One of my favorite places to visit when I am in the mood for spectacular sun sets...Miri, Malaysia. When ever there is good weather, the cloud formations here can be incredible and nothing beats a stroll down this beautiful coastline town at dusk. Here I went for an ultra wide perpective, emphasizing the sky which appeared as if it was on fire! Shot in 14 Bit Loss-less NEF, then edited in LightRoom 3.0 which has an awesome RAW converter which is the same as the one found in photoshop CS5. Hope you like it and thanks for viewing....

Hi Dilshan. Beautiful scene captured well. Your composition is very nice putting the horizon low enough to appreciate the patterns in the sky. Great light and colors. Nice work.

Hi Dilshan

A spectacular sunset with stunning warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue & orange. Good fg silhouettes & excellent sharpness. I wouldn't bother with the copyright in the bottom right corner. Most travel agents want the original raw file. Tfs!

Hello Dilshan

Nice to have all that sky and water as your artistic pallet. I like the dramtic capture here of sky and water. The colors are awesome. well done
