Sunset at Reelfoot Lake, end of January '11.

Funny thing about this shot - there was a group of 15 or so of us from the Paducah Photo Club, all on two little docks, taking pics of the sunset. A couple of others have a nearly identical pic. But I edited mine, entered it in the big local contest, printed it large, got it hung in the gallery downtown, and won Picture of the Year with it in that club, and now scored pretty fair in a very competitive challenge. "It ain't what you got..."...it's IF you use it.

I like the silhouettes but, there is just too much distraction in the water above, I would of gone for a panoramic crop, but thats just me, and I'm not you.

I find the area top left is most interesting here. The 'floating' objects are just cool the way it plays with the sky!
