Taken 5 minutes after the pic in my previous post - an indication of how quick things change this time of the day and why one should be ready for action at every second at that moment.

Removed a set of power lines on the horison and applied a few rounds of USM in PS. Cropped to about 85% of original pic.

Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 @ 36mm.
f/2.8 | 1/125s | ISO 250

Both a great, but I prefer the softer colors of the first rendition. I'd be tempted to soften things even more than in the first one. Welcome.

Hi Tobie

I prefer the golden water in this one but overall I prefer the colours of the first.. Good stuff..!

Thanks for the comments guys - the blue-to-golden hour period has something for every taste, that's for sure! :S3:

I like the tones of the previous one better, but this one feels more "level" to me, Tobie. Put them side by side and cycle between them and you'll see what I mean. It may just be a perspective/perception issue on the viewing end though :e3
