Romeo came in after a fish. The shot above was taken a second after this one. When the sun is at this position,you only have minutes to shoot . If you don’t have a subject lined up for the sunset,your screwed! A sunset is great,but it’s only part of a great picture. It cannot on it’s own be better than a shot with a subject in the foreground!
and not all subjects are created equal either! Some are better than others.
About the only thing that I don’t like about this shot,is that the top of the wing tip disappears into the darkness. If I had of stood up and shot,I probably would of gotten a brighter background behind his entire body!
