    So much drama in this shot. Would work for a Gothic novel illustration.

    The warm and homey lights make a great contrast with the dark and brooding sky.

    Usually I do not like to see the pollutants rising into the atmosphere, but in this case the smoke is actually very pretty. And the little lights twinkling are so nice. This is one beautiful capture. genie

    What kind of mode we shall use to capture the picture in a very blue color but still mix with a very bright orange color?
    Is it sunset mode?

    Nice skywatch photo you have in friday.

    I really like to capture these type of clouds. The flicker of lights add drama to the aerial atmosphere.

    Refineries definitely look magical at twilight especially with a sky like that!

    It’s a great shot. The natural lights have not yet fully faded, and the artificial lights are slowly brightening yellow-gold. And a worthwhile sky n clouds : )
