Well i am not a fan of landscapes, or sunsets.. and they are much to cliche.. but here i am. I actually think they are a bit boring and cold, despite how pretty they look. Pretty isn't really an 'image' i am going for. In any case, my wife and i were on a picnic oct 31, and the sun was setting on the ocean so i took some pics. I didn't have much else to enter for this challenge, so this is what it turned out to be. I hope i don't get voted down for too much editing because i didn't really do a whole lot. perhaps i will post the orig. after the challenge.

Very nicely done. The colors are fantastic and grab your attention. you really can never go wrong with a sunset, however, on that note thats all it is a breathtaking sunset and there is nothing that makes it different from any other sunset. A bird or a boat or something to grab the eye to one certain area of this would have gave it more impact. As it is now its a pretty sunset but its just lacking that little something extra to hold your attention.

Should end up much higher. I'll be looking for original now, since you said you did edit it a bit.

Wow. I want to live in a place this breathtaking. I'd like to see something like this as a panorama, but I don't think the choice to submit it with these proportions was wrong. It would be stunning no matter how it's presented.

This is great, the colors and cloud formations are amazing. The only thing that bugs me is the square format( and I'm not sure why )

Beautiful! Great colors. What looks like added saturation and contrast works really nice here. Distinctive clouds look awesome. Great job.

Wow! what a great shot, The only thing I can think of that would have improved is something to give an idea of scale.

Beautiful colors in the sky and water, the mountains are a nice contract in comparison.

Never ever seen something like this.

The clouds here are surreal, I really like the colors and highlights. Not your typical sunset.

Absolutely stunning... reminds me of the background of "The Scream." 10

Beautiful sky, though I feel like I need a focal point, a boat on the water, a bird in the sky, something to anchor me.

OMG. I'll have to get a print of this. I'm a Norwegian, first gen American and my parents would just love this. The incredible texture in the sky is unbelievable! Thanks for capturing such a breathtaking image and sharing it with us. Love it.

Oh man, those cloud patterns are great, especially with this toning. Of it weren't for the skyline and lake in the front I'd guess it was a photo of the great storm clouds on Jupiter.

Wow - Extremely powerful and liquid. I love the burning sky.

:) Really really nice!

Awesome sky, I can´t help but wonder if it´s manipulated but what the hell, I just don´t care when the outcome is like this.

What a sunset! I especially like how the water is so finely textured and horizontal while the clouds look like rippling waves. The pattern of the sky lloks like a magnified version of the pattern of the water surface.

Wow, the colors are spectacular.
