A sunrise caught in the foyer of my work building with an iPhone 6s.

A winter sunset from my front porch with my Nikon D3300.

Nice! You get some nice sunrises and sunsets in that part of the country.

Nice stuff. I like sunset photos even if they are a bit cliche. Haven't taken any in awhile but I've gotta bunch.

Really all photos are cliche. Everything's been photographed a billion billion times. I guess the true test of a photo is, does it make the viewer want to study the photo more closely. Does it suck in the viewer, and make them think.

A really good photo I can study for minutes, and then want to look at it again later and beyond.

Some are snapshots, and some are compelling.

I like gulls too, and photograph them.

Usually I photograph, what catches my eye. Sometimes I'll take a photo, and later on looking at it I realize I should have kept shooting more, because there was more to the scene then I consciously realized at the time.

I'm learning by looking at my own photos, that often I'm not seeing the bigger picture when it comes to framing and composition.

I can look at a photo and say to myself, this photo looks like a snapshot, but if I would have just moved to the left 10 feet and drop down lower it could have maybe been really good.

Well, not all photos, but certainly all of mine are. :o)

Check out Huntington Witherill for someone who sees differently. On the one hand, his subjects are a cliche. On the other, he sees them differently than most.

I like his simple compositions with the least processing.

He's a great example of less is more.

Oh, and just to add a sunset photo...

Taken last May (2016) with my D7200 and the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8

What did you shoot that with, saturn? Really excellent color, and micro contrast.

The fine variations in color really stand out, and make it pop. Beautiful!

Chris, awesome sunset, and the bird makes for a perfect focal point. The bird brings it all together.

That was about a third of the original frame. It was also shot at ISO 2000 so between the crop and the ISO, it's a little noisy. But yeah, the bird.

The bird is what it is all about.

Mine was the Nikon 50 1.4G on the D800, I think, though I had the old 28-105 on there for some reason so who knows! I don't read up. I often shoot with a wide and end up cropping in post. I don't have the money to have lots of options, so I stick to simple and safe.

Like I say, I get it wrong all the time!

Well the primes do generally transmit better micro contrast.

Nice image Saturn! I like the light poles on the right. There's a lot of beauty in that image but my eye was drawn to that feature.

I like the silloette against the sunset Chris. I took a similar image outside of Enid, OK earlier this year against a sunrise. I had my S120 with my one that trip and it held its own in the situation. In the end I wanted a wider scene than the camera could capture.

Yeah, those light poles grabbed my attention as we re heading out thanks to getting cold. If I had working hands I would have backed up a bit to get all the closest pole in.

Poles!

De ville, turns out that first one was with the 28-105, a very 'cheap' old lens. Currently trying to decide on which old lenses to drop from my kit!

The lamp posts are with the 50mm 1.4G!

EXIF for 28-105
