This is the sunset across a local lake.

Taken on a tripod with an orange filter and an ND8 filter to reduce the shutter speed to "flatten" the water.

Cloned a small hair out of the corner, adjusted colour balance, curves, hue/sat, usm and sfw.

WOW, 6th place is fantastic ... for some reason I've never shot at this park before even though it is only 2 miles from my house .... I think I'll go there more often!

Nice colors and flare on the sun. Love the two differently shaped trees.

This is a lovely picture, but I wish you had not done quite so much playing with the color--a little can go a long way. a 6

So warm and dreamy. That plane trail is just the perfect trail to follow with the eye. Like taking a walk through your photo. Thanks.

lovely crisp image with a good range of warm colors. i think if you waited a few more minutes, it would have helped with the lens flare (unless you wanted that effect intentionally)

Nice color and good use of flare. A trick to try with so many bare branches is to use 'Despeckle' or 'Salt&Pepper' in your noise reduction choices of the software app you're using.
