Sunset in Paradise
I have alwayzs had difficulty taking photos of sunsets, I have a few questions if it won't be any trouble to ask.
- what speed film did you use?
- what was your shutter speed?
- the apeture?
- did you use any filter?
- how did you get the colors like that or were they just waht you saw?

I used 400 speed film and I don't quite remember what my shutter speed and aperture settings were. I use a UV filter on all my shots. I didn't manipulate the colors in any way... that's just how the sunset looked. I wanted the foreground to be dark, so I didn't use a flash and if I remember correctly, I used the settings that my light meter recommended. If you want your foreground to be lighter you could use a flash or set your shutter speed slower or open up your aperture more than what your light meter tells you to do.
I got this picture - ain't all that good... please let us know how I can improve it. It a photo taken outside my bedroom window.

You are certainly going in the right direction. I would just do two main things:
1) Watch your corners. You don't want things like that black shape cutting out the upper left corner.
2) And maybe go out scouting for a different location, one that allowed you a bit more compositional flexibility.
Have fun photographing sunsets!
