    Lol! I think that might actually be a good Challenge topic. It would help demonstrate that what makes a good sunset shot, is the sunset of course, and so most sunsets being pretty, they look like good shots. Hence the aversion I have to the cliche. I feel a really good shot exploits the sunset to deliver something unexpected or unique.

I'll bet you will find that distinction decides the next Challenge as well. Any old thing can make an attractive vintage shot but the winners will , I predict, be the ones that rise above taking a snapshot of a subject interesting in itself. Or so I'd like to think. We'll see!

    Thanks all for the helpful comments. And Jade - too bad I won't win, because I'd likely make my challenge Sunsets!

    Good capture with sun and river vanishing in the same place. Colours are well matched.

    Actually not a bad implied vanishing point in more than one way but I dislike sunset shots so you didn't get my vote. Very pretty scene though,well taken.

    At first sight I thought this isn't a vanishing point strong image, but the more I looked at it the more I like it. The trees and their shadows draw into the vanishing point. I like that you centered the horizon with the bright sun in the middle, without this I suspect it would have been difficult to classify this as vanishing point.

    From the viewpoint of the camera the sense of a vanishing point is not strong. The shoreline runs horizontally smack in the middle of the frame like a distant horizon line. The silhouetting removes detail thereby further reducing distance clues for the eye. For all I know I could be looking at distant rolling hills.
