Nice capture on the colors and lighting; kinda' wish the surfer wasn't there as s/he distracts from the line of the pier.

The orange lights and reflections against the purple sky and water are a nice spark and compliment the sunset well! The only thing that breaks the mood for me is the surfer in the lower left. Not a big deal though. Well done! 8o)

awesome...love the surfer in the shot...I mean, I don't LOVE the actual surfer, although I am sure they are a nice person, but I do love the fact that they add to the picture...:-) PS. I don't hate the surfer...oh, never mind!!! 9
