Lovely! A golden sunset. Do we have birds in left upper quadrant, or perhaps UFO's?......Hmmm.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

Did you wait for the waterfowl to appear, Ben? They contribute greatly to an excellent silhouette.
What are the 3 `objects` (top left) in the sky - UFO`s? !!
What time of day?

Magnificent sunset Ben - not easy to photograph but you have nailed this.

I like how the orange glow is reflected off the flash

GREAT. Even the out of focus grass gives it depth and a three dimensional effect.Nice one

I wouldnt go as far to say it was Brilliant,Magnificent,and Beautiful to be honest and I dont think it would win any photo competitions.

To me its just another touched up photo of a Wigan sunset.

But I can see why some of you are getting exited about it.

Nice shot, I have taken very similar one's myself. The ducks in the foreground provide a nice lead to the sunset. Personally I would have toned down the brightness of the sun a bit. Levelled the horizon a bit to the left and cloned out the plant in the near fore ground. I can see with the camera your using you will not be averse to constructive criticsm, regards Jeff.

Ellen, you and I have spotted the "UFO`S" independently !!

Good sunset photo, beautiful colours. Look like there's paragliders in the left hand corner.

mick - hard to believe, this photo has not been edited AT ALL. this image is straight out of the camera.

It was taken last month as the sun was going down at about 5 oclock.

Ben, it`s good to know that your photo hasn`t been touched at all.
The pro`s and top amateur`s do !!
Would like to know if you waited for the waterfowl.

Comment by: Lizzie down under on 11th December 2012 at 18:03

You have got a nice little stairway to the sun reflection happening Ben, I'm not too sure about the UFOs though they look more like birds of the larger variety flying off to roost for the night. Cheers!!

Lovely Photo, keep them coming Ben.

Comment by: Ellen on 11th December 2012 at 19:20

To Ernest;"great minds think alike" ??...!!

Comment by: ben cusick on 11th December 2012 at 20:39

ernest, i didn't know there were waterfowl there. I will be sure to look out for them next time

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 11th December 2012 at 22:43

So you were fortunate then, Ben.
Did you see the sunset on Thursday 12th July 2012?
