Owe my Rikki, that hurts my eyes even looking at the thumbnail. IMHO, tone down just a frog hair. Very dynamic tones, but settle context. Lovely aside from the sunburn in my eyes.

I may be off my rocker though, I am most often just that.

*paper bag on head to cover face*
this is clearly not GOLD and you have just tweaked the hue and saturation to make it appear gold! I'm not giving you the benefit of a doubt. There are about 50 other landscapes like yours here in this challenge and they are all fake gold, so I'm voting a 1 for this, bleah!"

/runs off and covers ears from in-coming flame replies! :p

the challenge clearly states using gold except for jewelry

And I happen to know they're orange sunglasses, so that explains a lot.

Has anyone actually taken a picture through sunglasses?
& have it come out good?

Too bad I can't re shoot this one until next year in summer time.

Ok, just to warn you all people in DPC... this time I am in first 10... maybe first 5...

so, you probably sharpen your lenses before go out and shoot. Because I am ready for all of you :D

Yeah...

I took one few months ago in Moscow. I needed to increase the exposure time so I took my friends sunglasses and used them.
So this is what came out. (adjusted the colors a little)

Ok, I'm in. Early submission this time and no, it's not a golden sunset, though I see one every evening.

I'll get one out of my system too:

And now I need some more ideas for Gold...for a blue.?.

With a can of "Gold" spray paint the possibilities are endless.

It really doesn't matter though. Even door handles are gold color... lamps, trophies... many things, so anyone can come up with endless option without a can spray...

:D

That sounds so simple, but I didn't think of it. This might be the thought that sparks my creativity (I hope).

Gold...

Ribbons
Fabric
Paint
Markers
Some books have gold edging on the pages
They sell gold mascara at the store
There is that one liquor that is supposed to taste like cinnimon if I remember correctly. It had gold specs in it.

just a few

Yeah, if I have anything to enter, it'll be uploaded on Sunday after I get back home :)

You're not a true procrastinator, you're just a poser :)
