OK, so maybe not yet night, but almost! End of the pier at Santa Monica, waiting for the sun to set on a day with actual clouds! Yes, clouds! First time the poor camera has been out in quite awhile.

Wonderful shot! Your processing is just right and I like the sepia treatment. Nice to see you're still active on here. I'm trying to get back into it after 6 months off.

LA no way. First time the clouds were out in a while. Good timing. Nice HM.

One thing about candid photography is you never run into a situation where the end results turn out cheesy. Boring perhaps, but never cheesy. Can't say that about the sea of staged photos that frequent these types of challenges. Many of these should be served with wine. Perhaps a 2004 Dump Bucket Cuvée by The Vacuous Concept Winery? Just thinking out loud here...

Should have been placed below images that met the challenge, congrats on the image itself as it stands in its own merit as a non-night silhouette, excellently done!

Wouldn't they be facing the other way if they were greeting the night? Lovely silhouettes and the clouds are gorgeously sharp.

this looks to be a sunset and not a night time silhouette...

Great street shot entry...although I'm not sure that this is truly at night...

Exposure and PP absolutely spot-on. Love the detail in the sky.

looks like an amazing sky they've gathered to watch, some cool shadows going on as well

Ooh, I like this. Nice scene with great clouds and long dramatic shadows. Somewhat marginal on meeting the topic, since the sun in still above the horizon. Not that I haven't stretched the topic a bit now and then. This has the feel of a 21_F.gif Melethia entry.
