Taken just before sunset on the TN River in northern Alabama. The ski was nailed to the dock, and wasn't done for the shot, but was done for decoration long ago. Not a lot of post processing. Shot in raw, played with the white balance, exposure, color, etc. Then did a little selective color editing to bring out the white clouds.

Exceptional sunset detail and interesting sun framing choice. Well done! One of the best in the challenge.

4 - Quite a nice shot, especially of the sky - framing just not strong enough in my opinion. Perhaps a variation in cropping may have helped - that is if you were unable to loop up that leg rope(?) or ski to form the top 'edge'. Looks like some slight 'fill flash' issues as well, but apologies in advance if wrong.

Beautiful scene; very interesting approach to an overly-photographed subject. Use of flash works very well here, too.

Very pretty sunset; I like the contrast with the metal boat.

Less fill flash or maybe a gel on the flash wouldve made it look more natural

For me the ski is a big distraction from an otherwise amazing photo.

I like the composition, maybe a little bit darker in the foreground would amke the sun stand out more
