    Do you prefer the ambiance of a sunrise or sunset? I much prefer a sunset to a sunrise. The shades of purple seem much more intense at sunset, its thoroughly beautiful.

    Sunrise. I love how quiet it is then and cool too. Much noisier and hotter at sundown.

    Sunrise? What the hell time of day does that occur? I call BS.

    Last night anyway, I prefer sunsets.

    I like sunrise, because I love being up before the rest of the world wakes up:

    But sunsets can be cool too:

  9. I prefer sunset, because gig time is getting near, and booze and chicks too. :smug:

    I prefer sunset because I have no interest in being awake during the hours that sunrise typically comes.

    Sorry! I spent a fair amount of time while I was on vacation last week shooting sunrises and sunsets. I love the colors in your shot though.

    I can't get used to that, I freak a little every time I see the sunrise and didn't get any sleep.

    The colors are very unusual for us. I almost missed this - had just enough time to grab camera, make a WB adjustment on the way, and run to the neighbor's yard (the least obstructed view I could get to in a hurry). I'm glad the shots came out as well as they did, actually.

    Sunrise. When you wake up before the sun, you know you're getting full value out of the day.

    Barring that, I prefer Soulshine

    A sunrise can be cool, but living on the west coast its all about the sunset, especially at the beach.

    In general I like sunsets, the most beautiful light show I've seen though was watching the sun come up while driving through Yellowstone Park while drinking the best cup of coffee I remember having! That was pretty incredible!

    Don't have the original readily available, but I took this picture in Bora Bora on my honeymoon.
