Sunset, when the sun starts to dip on the horizon, it bathes everything in an amber glow. The light is warm and romantic. Falling in love during sunset is easy than at any other time of the day. It gives a soothing and relaxing feeling when you look at sun taking the final dip in the ocean. Every sunset is beautiful in its way. They are one of the most scenic and beautiful things on earth. The colors at sunset are most vibrant and when photographed, they look so stunning. To make a creative sunset picture, you need a little knowledge about the light.

1. Reach the sunset point before the sun starts to set. Reaching before time will help you to find out a perfect location to photograph sunset and setting up your gear. So that you do not miss a single opportunity.

2. Set up your camera & the tripod. The next important thing is to set your camera to take sunset pictures. Like set the exposure (aperture, ISO & shutter speed), white balance etc.

3. Find the right place. Explore the location and find out the best location to photograph sunset. Also find the perfect angle. There are an infinite number of angles, locations, and compositions you can play with.

4. Turn on your artistic judgement. This is something where you have to put your creative mind to work. Wait for the sun to be at the perfect position as per your artistic judgement and then click pictures of it. The perfect spot for one may be different for the other. Here, you have to believe in your judgement and create a stunning sunset picture.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
