Hot orange for my sister!

Hot orange for my sister!

Took this last night in the very last of the sunlight coming through the french windows. The sun was sinking so fast I ended up chasing it around the kitchen bench, and then onto a chair..Lol!! Could not decide how to crop it.

Evening did a great job with the crop, and that warm light is lovely..... the green and orange really go well with the black background......pretty darn good for a "snatched" shot....SmileAlan

The lighting is great and the colour really pops. Think you chose a good crop - the left one seems to be straining to catch more sun. Sometimes the opportunistic shots work out better than the 'set ups', which says something, but I'm not sure what. Jan
