Taken on vacation in Montana, the sunset was unreal. I cropped, rotated to straighten horizon, added a duplicate layer with 40% soft light filter and there you have it.

Wow. Just WOW. I sometimes don't understand the rhyme or reason for scores around here. Excellent timing for this shot.

What a great looking sky...The light pole is distracting and should have been cloned out. Great shot.

Mother nature at it's finest. This is a superb photograph, but is a little blown-out in the center/white areas. Still a ((7)) though!

while this is a beautiful image, but something feels a bit out of balance for me. i can't put my finger on it, but the initial impact wears off rather quickly. good luck with the other voters, i can only score this a 6.

Thats a very dramatic sky - your adjustments work well. The trees provide a nice framing effect to boot.

The sky is very interesting. I would like to give more point if there is a nice foreground in this picture.

Nice colours. Shame about the pole in the foreground, would have been nice to clone out.

My only complaint is that flagpole and car in the bottom right (you could've edited it out).

Great color and detail in the clouds, might benefit from cropping out the light pole. Nice work.

Awesome sky! I find the pole or tower or whatever it is in the lower right a little bit distracting, but still, great picture!
