Here's one taken with an old (by digital standards) Minolta A2, my first digital camera. Once I saw how much better digital was than my film, there was no looking back.

This image is from central/southern Italy. I think it would be better if I cropped out most of the trees on the lower edge, but then they also add some depth, IMHO. What do you folks think?

Personal preference of course, but I'd leave it as is with the depth from the trees. The plow lines make the image.

Lovely Ronstar.

Reminds me of some of the early evening shots I sometimes see in my favorite Facebook photography forum https://www.facebook.com/groups/NightSkyPhotography/
Scroll down a bit and there is a lovely San Antonio evening sky shot by Bob Kelley.

Thanks Paul & Audrey. That San Antonio shot by Kelley is fantastic! Great how he captured the moon and venus together with a sunset.

Great shot Meadbh!

Did you see where he attached a panorama of the scene in the comments? That was fabulous too - incredible silhouette.
That's a very inspiring Facebook group.
