poetress59: I have a curious question. As I peruse the entries I see many that have suns setting...some are shown here as black and whites or seem to be anyways. So my question is this...what constitutes a sunset? Is it in the coloring, is it in the position of the sun in the sky. I had an entry I had put in and when I entered it I wasnt sure because there was a sun setting but the silhouetted figures fit the goal as well. I was notified by the mods and given the chance to edit. Which isnt a problem as I put in a diff. entry. Then tonight I came to begin some voting and noticed a lot of entries with silhouettes created by suns setting so I am a little confused and wondering if I am the only one not quite understanding the goal.

friiskiwi: Mods can't be on all the time, and I guess in some photos it's hard to tell if it's sunset/sunrise. Colour photos makes it easier, and I guess in B/W you would have to look at the position of the sun. ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )

Dusk to Dawn when the surf's up the Surfers show up. This particular surfer would surf the sweet spot on the beach till the current swept him away from the break, he would then get out and run down the beach back to the break. When I asked him why he said running down the beach was easier than swimming against the current. (5 years and 2060 days ago)
