Too many decisions on getting the right one, hope I made the correct one.

This was taken while driving in the evening and I had to stop. The sky was amazing and once the sun started slowly descending... I just had to take a shot of it. First time really taking a photo of the sunset and I'm very happy with it.

The title is from a William Shakespeare poem. The poem really has nothing to do with the sunset and/or it's heat, but I just liked the title of it.

Now this is simply beautiful. The oh so slight fuzzy tree took it one point down for me. It's probably due to resizing for the challenge. It's a 9 for now. I will revisit.

Nice colors, Try croppingout the left side, about 1/3 or the way then look at the photo. I may be wrong but I think this would look better. I really like the photo.

Very nice!!!! Maybe you could have cropped on the left just to remove the small tree. Even with that, it's very dramatic. Hope you do well.
