Taking the picture

Follow these tips for best results when shooting at sunset:

• Fill your composition with 90 percent sky and 10 percent ground or water. This arrangement may feel funnyat least until you look at your prints and see how much more dynamic they are with this composition.

• Don't leave the scene right after the sun dips below the horizon. Hang around for another 10 minutes or so; sometimes there's a truly amazing after-burst of light.

• Keep an eye on your shutter speed (if your camera shows it). If it goes below 1/30th of a second, you may need a tripod or some other steady surface to prevent camera shake.

• Activate the self-timer or remote control to avoid jiggling the camera when you press the shutter.
