Manila Bay. The pollution creates vivid sunset colours, and also really dims the sun when it's on the horizon to be much dimmer than the sky above - hence the lack of reflection.

Seriously, none of these qualify as "sky on fire".


Since I'm saying that, I suppose I should post something that I liken more to "sky on fire".

Attached is something that I'd consider closer to "sky on fire" but even then, it is just an "auto-tone" out of Lightroom (no crop or manual saturation, etc, changes)  but even then, there may be a couple of better ones I've got.

Well, if attachments work... :/

My Samsung Galaxy S4 takes better picture than that :P

Here's a bit of a fun picture; the memorial shell sculpture on the beach at Adleburgh in Eastern England.

It's made of about eight tonnes of stainless steel and when we came across it we thought it was in memorial to those lost at sea, as it has cut into it 'I hear those voices that will not be drowned'. In fact it is a memorial to the English composer Benjamin Britten, one of relatively modern times, and who's music I have to admit I found pretty dire. By all accounts it is pretty unpopular at Aldeburgh.

Anyway I liked it, so here it is on a three frame panoramic with the 5DII and 40mm pancake plus a touch of fill from 430EX. Shot just as the sun rose above the horizon, and underexposed for effect.

Frankly, I find it sad when a person ruins their picture like that. It is a pretty image, but the watermark, and your response to a complaint about it, sours it. That's a shame.

It's not your choice to make and I'm happy with my choice.

Did this pan a couple years ago. Can't remember how many shots exactly, but I'll say probably around 6. This thread is rough on me, wish I was there now! :)
