I went outside tonight to test out my new toy "a Mino Flip HD" in low light conditions, When I looked up at the sky I seen some amazing Colors and Clouds out over the ocean so I grabbed my camera and headed down by the water. I took about a dozen shots before it got too dark, I am quite pleased with results as this is one of those shots I dream of capturing.

PP Opened in Camera Raw, Cropped. Adjusted Hues and Sats, Sharpened, Vignetting, Highlights, Brightness, Exposure, Vibrance and Contrast. Opened in PS CS4 Adjusted Layers for Levels and Curves, Highlights and Shadows more contrast, Dodge and Burn in a few spots, Resized, Sharpened USM Added a Border and Saved for Web.

For those interested. The Mino Flip didn't do so well in the low light conditions, Alot of digital noise. But otherwise is a very cool little toy. For it's size it performs quite well in decent lighting conditions.

1-1 2-2's and 3-3's Freakin Trolls! To the rest of you. Thanks for the great score and comments. my 3rd Highest ever. Woot!!! Would have been even better if not for those stinkin troll voters.

Beautiful sky detail. I love it when clouds are lit by reflected light from below like this.

Great landscape. Great purple and blue color in the water. Little bit oversharp IMO, the hallow around the rocks is hurting this great image.
