I know we have all seen a thousand sunrises or sunsets, but this one is flat out stunning.

Normally I find compositions that are centered in the middle of the frame to be a bit distracting, but in this particular case, the middle frame composition really makes the shot, as this is more about the symmetry found rather than the focus direction on the sunset itself.

The colors really pop, although maybe slightly too much so in the leading edge of the clouds and down towards the horizon, but I dont think it really detracts from the image at all.

One thing that catches my eye almost immediately is the image seems to be tilted a bit. I think fixing this would make the image that much better as there would be no real distractions from the impact of the shot.

Overall, a great shot, thanks for sharing!
