6.95 late afternoon Tuesday. Happy camper here! No matter how this ends up, I'm thrilled.

My first long exposure/after sunset shot. I was actually worried that I broke my camera while taking this! HA I thought it ended up too saturated but my hubby said enter it.

No filters. Levels, curves, selective color, brighten/contrast, saturation and Unsharp mask.

Thank you for the generous scores.

This is an outtake with tones I prefer and if I had processed it first probably would have gone with it.

really love the colours that you have captured. Its a shame those lights were on, maybe it would have been better if you shot it closer to the pier looking out to sea.

Very pretty image. The softness of this image is what sold me on it. Keep up the great work.

The colors are great, and I like the composition for the most part. I just wish that you had either cropped off more of the sky or placed the horizon in the center (one of the few times I think placing it in the center would work).
