11th here, 4th in the Biblical challenge... not lucky at rollover today.

This is one of my best landscapes and I hoped to get a top ten.

Not a complex editing. The colors are real, the sunset was amazing and I only set a proper exposure in camera raw the give balance to the foreground and background. I only increased clarity.

Nature has been more powerful than photoshop.

The only thing i can think of which might havebumped the score down a bit is it being a little too dark in the darks, if you get my drift. Other than that nice long exposure of a sunset :)

Aw. The 11th is totally my fault. I gave you a 7, and meant to come back later to bump it up, but lost track of the date, and didn't get back. So you got a 7 from me, but deserved more....

Excellently composed. Love the lighting -- wonder if this is natural or processed lighting? Not that it matters...only that if it's PP...I'd like to know how!!

There is motion in the clouds that pulls my eye right in to this scene. Very much like the light, too. My favorite watery landscape in this challenge.
