    Caught a lovely post-sunset sky over Journey into Imagination on a nice, cool evening at Epcot in January - coming out of the Innoventions building:

    Missed this one yesterday Justin, great shot. ; I love how the orange works from the lower left of the the sky and spreads out from there. ; Nice grab!

    Thanks all. ; For full disclosure, I was waiting for blue hour, just around sunset I decided to hit the restroom...figuring actual blue hour was still 15-30 minutes away. ; It was an overcast sunset and not very nice color so I didn't figure I was missing much. ; When I came out of the restroom, I saw this sky - this last little gasp of sunlight was casting a beautiful orange that wasn't there during the sunset itself...and the overcast clouds were high and rippled as it was a cold front and dropping to the 40s that night. ; Lucky timing too - 5 minutes later, all the color was gone...5 minutes before, it wasn't there.

    Awesome sky, Justin. ; I would like to see the shadows in the foreground opened up a little bit to show a tiny bit more detail. ; What software do you process with?

    I actually never bothered to process's right from the camera. ; I do have a version though with much more of the foreground detail, as I took the shot with in-camera HDR at 4-stops - to my eye it looked a little too strong on the HDR and I went with the non-HDR one here...but I can do a quick stack of the HDR and non-HDR, and it would probably be a good balance between the two.
  9. Just sick! ; :-*

    Notice the triangle in the sky that compliments the pavilion!

    Thanks Jeff. As you know, Florida does this for us during those cold fronts coming through in winter...we just have to be there with our camera at the right time!
