OK, relax, this is the last Sunset shot I plan to post from Last weekend. I think I have probably milked that cow dry now...! Not sure which of the three I like best. I am heading off to a farm this weekend so hopefully I will have something completely different to post next time...

1D4 & 18mm Zeiss on a tripod
2 sec at F18, iso 100
This was full frame but I cropped from the top to 16:9 format.

This is my favorite of the 3. Well done.

Same here! Gorgeous light on the moss and a very nice sky with out-of-the-ordinary colors and subtle reflections in the water.

I like this too, Don, though there's a strange green hue in the sky top left?

Nice foreground, sky with a misty sea created with the slow shutter speed and brilliant colours Don.

Hi Don, a lovely comp and sunset colours, but not too sure about the green hue in the sky.

Hi, Don, it's a toss up between this and your first post. The lighting on this one is gorgeous and I love the slow shutter speed.:S3: This has a very magical quality to it.

Thank you all for the comments... I agree the sky should no be green anywhere so I will go searching and 'degreen' it. Its undoubtly due to me fiddling with the colour balance to remove the various casts etc. Usually done by selecting a few deep shadows or known whites and adjusting the colour to balance the three channels at those points.

regards and thanks to all for your comments..

I like the scene and the comp but overall, the water and sky appear muddy and the colors are off.
I would start again with the PP and just leave it as much as possible.
i think in this instance, less is more.....

Hi Dan

Thanks for the comment. I mentioned in an earlier post from the same evening that there was a bush fire in the area that had smoke drifting over the sea... Maybe this accounts for some of the "mud" you see??
