last second shoot.

the sky looked amazing tonight. had to do it quickly, for i had something really important to do tonight. hope you all like it.

took 5 shots on tripod, merged together, different varying layers of opacity, it got rid of a lot of the noise caused by 1600ISO. also used my circular polarizer. it really brought out the colors after the sun was going down, but had to use a lot more of a shutter and huge aperture

curves adjustments, layers adjustments, selective color to bring blues out a LITTLE bit more.

resize, unsharpen mask on lab mode to sharpen (mainly trees), save full (186k)

hope you enjoy it. hopefully get another 6, i\'ve been on a roll lately. :D

Very nice :: Silky textures with an interesting foreground silhouette :: Horizon seems a little off, but that's pretty much the only minus as far as the image goes - 'sky' connection is a little weak, but only because it's pulling a supporting role to the other elements & not center stage itself.
