Quite hard to choose from my photos... :D The colours of this picture is relatively muted compared with the other submissions, but what I liked about this picture is the scale of the airplane compared with the vastness of the skies. Taken with a GX-100:

Norfolk, on the east coast of England.
These clouds were out over the sea illuminated by the setting sun in the west. Took 20+ shots trying to capture the amazing colours. PP just lightened the forground dune grasses.

This is an evening picture in Santander Spain port. The colour temp setting was automatic- far too blue this sky, but I liked it very much compared to the streetlights, so I kept it this way.
