So I was leaving my house to go to the store and I saw this sunset. I turned around, rushed home, ran into my house and grabbed my camera, sprinted back outside and drove back to where I could see it. Unfortunately, the sun had started to set behind the tree line, so I couldn't get it all visible. This was the best I could do. It was really an amazing sunset.

Wow- stunning colors! I'd throw out most of the foreground, though.

Wow - that sky is a knock. Beautifully done, but I'd also crop out some of the foreground.

As another moderator would say... Ohhhh Pretty! Beautiful colors... Gotta add my vote for cropping the foreground. Remember when composing that the best place for the center of attention is not generally the center of the frame Had you tilted up slightly, say knocking out 2/3 of the black foreground, you would have had even more of that beautiful sky.
