Not many people know how to capture the glory of a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Wonderful job. I'm very impressed. I think you have the best sunrise and sunset pics on this site, and I've seen several :)

Yes it was at 1/4000, 400ASA, f4.5. As a result I think that it is a bit underexposed. Next time I'll know about a grey sky backlight.

Thank you for the commentary in " Holy Week "
I understand it of the hooded ones but really it(he,she) does not have anything to see....
It is a tradition that lasts in the whole Spain and is totally religious.
The hoods are for that some of them are penitents and in certain cities they make sacrifices go for example as(like) barefooted during the procession with chains tied in the feet (I suppose that you sides I surprise but here though every time they are less continues being kept to be capped)
Thanks and Regards

Hi Joe,
Thanks for commenting on my "After the Stom" image.
You asked how this was stitched, well, with a lot of time and effort :). The original shots were taken with the only lens I had available at the time- a super wide Sigma 12mm. So, of course there was heavy distortion. This left only one viable option open to me, manual stitching in PS. So mainly a lot of clone stamp, and healing brush. CS is nearly vital for something like this. If you want, I can send you the original pic, with the images put together, before the actual stitching.

Thanks for your comment regarding "zihua sunset"... Yep, Zihuatanejo was featured in "Shawshank Redemption". When I got there I was expecting a lazy fishing village like the one portrayed in the movie (ie 50 years ago)... However, it's now a city of about 190 thousand. Great place all the same.
