The title means "Sunset in the water".

This was taken in Parco Urbano in the City of Ferrara, I had been meaning to visit this park for a few days to get a shot like this, finally got there on the last day of shooting.

PP. Tonemapped the RAW file, neat image, in photoshop boosted colour saturation, slight curves, violet filter at 25%, resize, unsharp and border.

*****************************

Wow, third, a new PB, and a best for the D40X! 2 ribbons from 2 entries, this is going to be hard to keep up :-p

I'm amazed this did as well as it did, this was a really tough challenge, there are some truly stunning shots. Thanks again to all those on this site who've helped me learn so much. J

well, although this is a challenge for water, i had to stick this photo in photoshop and play with the levels myself, after playing with it, i realized, it is a nice looking sunset, but if you boost the contrast +16 and drop the brightness 18, somewhere in there, the image turns into a audio spectrum that you would use to edit a sound in a remaster program.
