This is a wonderful theme.
As shown by the great entries that have already been posted.
Looks like you're in for a difficult job, Alayos!

Took these yesterday with the Olympus TG-4. Dialed in -1 EV when I shot them, then pulled whites and shadows a bit up, highlights and blacks a bit down in Lightroom. Whitebalance set to Daylight.

First one taken at 8:29 PM
...and three minutes later as the ferry came in from the mainland.

Here you go, Tilia. Great suggestion, I also did a slight adjustment in pp to bring out the setting sun.

Wonderful theme and entries, thanks Arayos92 and people!
I thought that I had many summer sunset shots, turned out that there are not that many. Anyway, here are my entries.


Desert path by k kwb, on Flickr
Pentax Q7 and 08 wide zoom at 4.1mm (equiv. ~19mm in FF), iso 200, f/4.5, 1/1000 sec.
I took this last month during my commute, the sun was setting by Rattlesnake Mountain in Washington State and was illuminating the path in the desert.


Everything is converging, even pelicans. by k kwb, on Flickr
Pentax Q7 and 08 wide zoom at 3.9mm (equiv. ~18mm in FF), iso 200, f/4, 1/50 sec.
This was also last month before going back home, I took this from the bank of Yakima River. I was first attracted by X-ish pattern formed by the clouds and the reflection, but I noticed that a pair of pelicans were floating down. I quickly started taking shots before they merged into the black shadow of the trees.

Lastly, not sure if stitched photos are allowed but this is a panorama stitched from a few images.

Desert, mountain and clouds by k kwb, on Flickr
Pentax Q7 and 02 zoom at 5mm (equivalent of ~24mm in FF), iso 200, f/8, 1/50 sec.
This was last August at LIGO Hanford Observatory, WA, USA. To the right is a part of one of LIGO's 4km arms, to the left are power line towers. You can see that the distant Rattlesnake Mountain was all scorched up from wild fire last year.

I'm in full agreement. Alayos92 picked a terrific subject, I don't envy him in picking a winner.
