This was taken on a very special day. It was very stormy and the light was just amazing. Because of the storm the sky was changing fast and just before the sunset it was absolutely magnificent and the sky was more red than it was earlier that day. When I took this picture I just reduced the light and by doing that the sky became a little more red than it actually was, but I liked that more so I kept it that way. In photoshop I used "levels" and "brightness and contrast". Then I used "curves" just a little, and that was all.

You can see more pictures from this day here at my gallery //hs.smugmug.com/gallery/242118

Reykjavik cathedral. Did you play with the saturation of the original? Nice effect.

the houses on the left look tilted towards right... the clouds looks very un-real. would love to see some detail on the tower and some more light on it. OK, I may sound very critical, but this still is a good capture :)

Very saturated. just a bit too much for my taste...
But I like the composition AND the color in the sky..

This is a nice shot. I would have probably rated it higher if the orange wasn't quite so saturated. The building in the bottom left is distracting - a different angle with only the church and the sky would have been more striking.

Awesome! Fantastic sky. It´s just too bad the traffic sign and lightposts are there in the way, I know this church very well so I know there is nothing you can do about it but get closer and use a wider angle lens (and therefore get more distortion wich is also bad)

All in all one of the very best shots I have ever seen of Hallgrímskirkja, I gave it a 9.

Looks a bit overdone in post processing but it doesn't have to be. The sunsets were spectacular in the beginning of October.
