My favorite spot near my home in Morro Bay, Ca. Great sunset today. Not much adjustments needed, a touch of dodge and burn.

Excellent sky further enhanced by the border......wish the boat in the foreground had not been there......still a beautifull shot very crisp and clear

Amazing colors, and including the boat in the extreme foreground really makes the shot! 10

Nice choice of foreground to add more interest and to make it a bit different.

Nice colors, I think the foreground detracts from the overall photo.

Love the lighting and the boats in the water. I might have cropped this a bit tighter to get less of the forground boats on the sand. I understand you want the contrast but the forground boats take us so much space that I am distracted by the blur. I would have either cropped most of the foreground boat(s) out or made them the focus and blurred the background a bit.

OK - I start out by taking all of my "above Average" shots (6 or higher) then bump them up (7 or higher, 8 or higher) until I arrive at my pick for the ribbons -
10 - Congratulations! Now all you need is the rest of the voting to go along with me!

Great Sky.I think that your foreground is too underexposed and it takes up half ofthe frame.I would have left it out altogether.

such gorgeous colors here...one might argue that the foreground could be brighter, but then you'd lose the reflected color...nicely done

I like the top half much better than the bottom half.

you chose an excellent POV. Without the foreground this would be just another sunset/water picture. You have risen above the genre.
