I made this last night. The sunset was just OK but the "afterglow" colors were beautiful and the cloud reflection in the water made it interesting.

Well I like this kind of image and I think you pulled it off really well just like I might have done. I like the diagonal the growth in the water creates.

Hi Judy, The afterglow is beautiful and you handled it well technically. The large cloud adds alot to the image and by attaching the reeds to each end helps anchor the image and adds interest. Good one!

Hey Judy,
Colors are good....I like the reeds although I would have preferred then away from the edge a bit.....also see if you can get a touch more seperation in the center one. I like your choice of pano too.....really includes everything importatant to the image....so nicely done there.

Thanks Roman. Here is the re-worked image. Colors may not be identical as I started over. I had cropped off a small amount on the left side so I added it back. No more room on the right so I removed some of the weeds to make more room. I also didn't know how to fix the ones in the middle so I used content-aware fill and disposed of them ;) I also had used it to remove a log just left of center in the OP. I wish someone would get rid of that log, I've removed it 30+ times in all my sunset photos this summer!

Judy the colours here are superb with the far bank in the centre of the image separating the scene beautifully. Great image
