I must say that this sunset scene is perfect in every which way!

The sun itself is in a perfect circular disk and is cradled between the edge of the mountain and the thick clouds in the distance before disappearing for the night.

The combination of the soft clouds and the hues makes for a perfect sight during dusk. Not too dark, nor too glaring or harsh.

There is plenty of light to show the apron, as well as the fuselage, wing, winglet, and empennage of the Ryanair 737-800, as the sun is about ready to settle behind the horizon. What perfect timing!

And what is so great about this shot is that the reflection of the sunset can be seen on the shiny surface of the fuselage. What a perfect mirror-like effect! I find the 'double disk' on the fuselage to be quite interesting. I would assume that the movement of the sun is reflected on the fuselage and that the exposure allowed a little bit of time for this to occur when the shot was taken.

I can see the reflection of the empennage on the back part of the fuselage! Two cool lines, indeed!

This photo definitely shows a great deal of clarity and demonstrates a perfect balance among everything that is incorporated in the sunset shot.

On top of everything that is included in the shot, the weather is just perfect. Not too cloudy nor too sunny.

The view of the sunset from this position could not have been more perfect! And what a perfect time to enjoy a quick break between flights!^^

Oh, by the way, the title for this awesome shot is definitely quite fitting! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="45" height="20" alt=":highfive:" title="High-five!" />

I love this one! Totally reminds me of the soft, cloud-filled sunsets out here in the dry desert with the mountains in the distance. Such sunsets always evoke feelings of serenity in me!

Great job on this one, Chris! :+fav:! :)

(I meant to put this comment in here, not with my critique. And I do not know how the peace sign appeared in the corner when I did not even select anything from the emoticon list.)

Did you take this from the retractable staircase or by sticking your head out the openable windshield panel?
