There's an overall dark teal (I think) that maybe I just haven't seen before. And you know how everyone's monitors can be different. I have often seen a strong cyan sky with neon orange-pink clouds, and have thought, "If I photographed that and presented as seen, nobody would believe." :|

You are so right, Linda. Somewhere in my collection I have these 'roiling' clouds in a fantastic shade of cyan that just blew me away when I first saw it. Talk about an alien sky...

The size of the sun is what gets my attention. I have previously seen sunset/rises (what appears to be an optical illusion) but don't think that's the case with this image because it's so close to the horizon. The city appears to be in a haze, and along with the huge sun is what draws me in all the way past the greenery discussion. Does it need more work? Yes, but I do like it as is because of what I have already mentioned.

It's amazing how much the lights at the bottom-right add to the image! S-
