The colors when converted from RAW didn't look much different from what's here. I (hopefully) just made them better. The version automatically converted from the Canon software was a mostly orange sky.

First shoot with the new Sigma lens.

Clone out a few small lights in sky & small distractions
Blue Tool <==== Edit: I don't know what I meant to type here!

Post Challenge: Thanks for the votes and comments. I had no filter on the lens for the star effect. I took shots further from the right and the effect is greatly reduced. I suspect it's mostly due to something partially blocking the light.

That lens flare is AWESOME, I was one of the ten's I just loved how big and exagerrated that is, great shot! Congrats on the 7th place finish.

That's quite the star on the lighthouse light, if only the flare wasn't there. Very pretty color and surreal looking water.

The contrast, color, and illumination are excellent. The starburst from the lighthouse makes the photo 'shine'.

greta star effect - did you use a starburst filter, and if not, how did you do it.
