Default Sunsets and stars

A couple of sunset photos that I took, plus one of a clear night sky.

I'm not sure whether I like the tighter crop or the wide angle of the opera house, I like the clean silouette in the tight crop. The star photo needs some work, it was my first time shooting that sort of thing so I was shooting blind more or less.

C/C please

Yep, #3 easily for me; the others don't do anything. I think theyre' all far too zoomed/cropped. Sort of a grey area between too-zoomed-in and abstract.

Sunset through the grass is nice..
rest not so much...
1,2 overdone subject and setup with odd/stale framing.

stars are good but nothing to grab you.

Cheers

Thanks guys I'm really happy with #3 especially as I didn't do any PP, that's straight off the camera.

Yeah it's kind of hard to get a unique angle on the opera house/bridge

I like number 2, because whilst the silhouette looks like one structure, if I showed that to an overseas relative, they would be able to identify each of them. You've cropped just to allow enough of each.

I got two new shots, posting them here because they are the same theme

Pity about the lens flare on the sunrise. I would have liked to have taken more star photos to make the trails longer but I ran out of battery

C/C please!

Number one is beautiful.

Number two is a good try, maybe do some light painting of the trees while doing the long exposure.
