Olympus C-750 UZ digital camera, with a FLD filter, and a polarizing filter. Exposure time: 1/1000 second, at f/8.0 ISO 50.
I went out and decided I'd try zooming in closer while the Sun was setting for a closer and better view with higher resolution and detail, I made sure to set the aperture as small as possible, and used the FLD and polarizing filters to bring out more detail and reduce brightness. I also used a noise reduction setting on the camera.
