    Default the sunset - not sure what I could have done different

    I looked out the window last night, and the colors of the sunset were GORGEOUS! But our backyard sucks for capturing the sunset, and I couldn't drive anywhere to get it (believe me, I was tempted!). So I stood on the deck, and tried capturing the colors. I couldn't close the ap any more, as I didn't want to bump the ISO to 1600. And the SS was as low as I wanted to go - when I went lower, the colors were less vibrant. I feel like I was limited with my options given how dark it already was. Do any of these do it for you? I kinda like the silhouette of the leaves, but then I also think that's distracting. ay yi yi

    OH pretty colors! i see you used your new lens I can't wait to get mine! out of all these I like #2 best. Is there a way you could have gotten the sky in focus instead of the leaves? The others look nice too but I'd clone out the thing...in the background. Sorry forgot what those are called

    I don't have any reccommendations for you, but I think I like #1 the best. I know you said you couldn't do it, but I think they would have all benefited from your ap closing up.
