Let's get this out of the way first, guess who forgot the filters, so even though I've recovered the highlights to no blinking burn out areas in post, they're still very bright and nothing is polarised.

Now I have that out of the way here are 3 images from tonight's sunset.

All Pentax K1, the 2 standard images taken with the D FA 24-70mm and the pano is taken with the DA* 60-250mm, 17 images stitched together making a 380 million pixel image.

All three lovely Gareth but, it's the first two with the great use of foreground that really grab me.

Since it is head on to the sun would a polarizer make such a difference?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

None, they work best at 90 degrees to the sun. They'll still work normally to reduce reflections on bright surfaces if there are any, but not darken the sky

Thanks all, appreciate the comments.

Yep, the polariser isn't going to do anything to the sky from this angle but as there was that small pool of water in the foreground and those rocks it would of cut through some stray light being reflected

Love number 1 - I think it is a cracker with the light on the foreground, subtle rocks in the pool and an interesting sky. A bit like golf, the more you practice the better you get. Well done.

Just that little bit of rock lit by the last rays in 1 is the deal maker for me.
