    I have a question here - this place faces east, and the setting sun really doesn't have much of an impact on anything except the small bits of sky you see. Do we need to wait to so long after sunset for these shots? Or could we do them earlier than if we were on the West Coast and still have the same effect? This is something I wonder about whenever I am in places like Savannah or St. Augustine, or facing east in the evening anywhere. I am often reluctant to take pictures facing east at sunset, because I don't feel that I can capture something dramatic in the sky. I really like this picture, so you have given me some inspiration. The Crab Shack is a good place to eat! You have caught it well!

Good comments and observations, Karrel! We are looking at twilight blue in the sky - the point being that once the sun has set, and the sky takes on that nice soft bluish hue, the balance of artificial lights and sky light can be such that you get this effect. If there were still a sunset, that could be interesting too, but generally the light would be too intense for it to work well.

Very nice picture... is this place in Savannah? I am currently a student at the Savannah College of Art & Design.

Yes, Josh, it's the Crab Shack out towards or on Tyee Island. They have great food, and ambience!
