Every once in a while, I still get amazed at how fast light can change and dramatically change a scene. Last week's photo was the photo I was after, but with photography, you don't just stop after one shot. You continue on and try for an even better shot from the one before. In just 5 minutes time from the Palm Sunrise photo, this is what you get. Whether or not this is better, is subjective. Personally, I prefer last week's photo to this one, but it still doesn't stop me from appreciating how much a scene can become alive if you give it a few minutes.
My mom went out shooting with me on this morning and she captured almost the same identical shot as this one.
I really like the color tones in this photo. Good Job!
Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!

The silhouette of the palm trees against the burnishing sky makes a dramatic statement. Good capture at the precise moment.

This version made me gasp a bit, so I guess that means I like this one best. You are right, every nano second that goes by your camera reveals a different picture and when the final picture you see on your camera is the one you saw in your mind while you were composing, it will make you gasp.
