Ian Smith from London, United Kingdom

Such a beautiful capture Ian, and the depth of the scene allows you to slowly draw yourself under the arches and beyond into an everlasting sunset... wonderful!
With such a shot, I may have experimented with removing all colours except red & yellow, then boost the contrast - just to see how it might tone down the cool blues in the shadows which remove some of the warmth from the sunset.
