Should you point you camera towards the sun.  It does produce stark contrasts.  This was taken late afternoon.  Post processing in Lightroom enabled the recovery of the sky.  Converted to B&W and split toning added.  Sepia Highlights...Aqua Shadows with a bias towards the Highlights of 60%.

This proved to be a very popular shot.  Southwold Pier taken as sunset approached.  A ND filter was used to enable the use of a 30 second exposure, to flatten the sea completely, and obtain plenty of blur.  Not that the sea was that rough that day.  Of the series of shots I liked this one in particular because the sun is striking the roof of the last building on the pier, and giving it a distinctive red glow.

Whitby Abbey.  As sunset approaches a hazy sun, breaks through above the deserted abbey.  Exposed for the sky to ensure detail in the sky - blue and cloud - and the abbey appears as a silhouette.

Sunset over Whitby Bay.  Taken last year we were fortunate to witness some glorious weather and truly colourful and saturated sunsets.

Tilt-Shift image of 'Princes Street' Edinburgh.  Not only was selective focus added in post production but the image saturation was also increased slightly.  The very high viewpoint makes for an ideal image for 'Tilt-shift'...and creates that 'model village' illusion.
