As soon as I saw this challenge I thought of the Moody Blues, Late Lament. I also know a lot of people wont get it. Iím guessing a score of 4.8.

Fine tuned with color contrast in Elements4, level, resize, sharpen, save for the web.

God I love the Moody Blues! This is a nice shot but I would like to see it a bit lighter. Not completely, just a little. Nice shot.

You got robbed on this. I thought it was most thought-provoking and an interesting entry indeed. Keep up the good work, and don't let that score bother you.

1+1 = 2 which I will square for making me think about this for a score of 4.

This is way too dark for my monitor. I don't see anything red.

for me, this image is under exposed and would benefit from a stronger flavour of red through it. good luck! :o)

Maybe it's my monitor, but this is just too dark. Pluse it looks decidedly purple, what I can see of it. Sorry.

Would of liked to see a little more red come through in the shadows on the rock just after sunset possibly.

Too dark

I think the Moody Blues were talking of the loss of colors at the gloaming. Since I'm unfamiliar with the rocks here, any red would have to be an illusion. So maybe I'm like that cruel orb that rules the night.

Really dark...hard to determine RED out of this shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

So is that what the moody bluse were singing about?

I dont think this fits the challenge, maybe an illusion :-) good luck
