Driving home from work today, I started to see the sky turn a gorgeous orange - and changed took a detour home along the south coast.

All I can say is I am so glad I did :-)

1 overlay layer at around 30% to add a little softness/contrast to the image, other than that - straight out of the camera!

lovely. The water is smooth, but has a feeling like liquid metal...very heavy. Interesting affect on the image.

8 - Like this, mostly for the shape/pattern of the waves on the shoreline, which obviously this size does not do justice to. Criticism; difficult, like to see those waves accentuated/used/enhanced more, but not sure if even a horizontal framing would do that. No idea how to adjust it, but as straight as the horizon seems, the reflection of the sunset on the water - if that was 'perfectly straight', may have made this even better in my opinion, hard to explain.

Very nice composition and colors. Part of the image seems a bit 'soft' to me, maybe it's just me. It also looks like there's a line about 1/3rd of the way from the bottom of the image, where a filter ended or something.
