Challenge: Free Study IX (Advanced Editing IV)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Harwich Port, MA, USA
Date: Nov 17, 2005
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: Nov 11, 2005

Processed from RAW

Hue/Sat, shadow balancing, levels, selective color to tone brightest highlights, crop, USM, border

These colors are actually pretty close to what the eye saw, believe it or not. I expect to get dinged for oversaturation, but this was a really stunning scene.

Beautiful as always Robert. I find this photo very interesting in that the flare from the sun is replicated almost exactly in the reflection. I can't say that I've ever seen this (or noticed it) before in a photo. Great use of color. Nice work.

Cool shot. Good use of your aperature to capture the star in the sunset. This really adds a lot to this one. Way to go.

2 different pools of water with 2 different reflections. The sun reflecting off the first pool is very good. The wide angle of the shot of the clouds almost draws me into the scene. Very good for a plain ole "sunset" ! 8

This is so awe inspiring with radiant sweeping colors and then their reduced intensity in the reflection. Bumping up.

Very pretty. The richs tones of blue and yellow with hints or orange are stunning. I like the flare created by the sun in the reflection. Beautiful panorama!!!

There are a lot of sunset shots in this challenge, but this one is the best IMO. I love the clean, crispness of the shot. The reflection is great, but what really makes it for me is the slight twinkle of the sun just as it's going done - great timing! <8>
