    So I got a new camera.. one that doesn't just take the picture for you..
    Only time there has been any decent light at all since I bought it was a sunset.. while I love sunsets I am sure they will bore you all to pieces.. sorry.

    I liked how the light came through the tree.. what can I say.. I am boring.

    This one happens to be the first shot I have ever taken that the colors of a sunset came out... real.

    #1 the foreground is underexposed and much too dark.

    I like #2. You got the horizon nice and straight. I'd consider cropping off the bottom to get rid of that glob of weeds at the lower left.

    I'm pretty sure he means he got a nice new camera with some good manual options rather than a P&S.

    ...And yes, P&S cameras do have manual options but generally they're a bit of a joke and very limiting relative to an SLR.

    ...And yes, you can take wonderful photos with a P&S also :)

    If you wanted to expose the foreground more in 1 then you could try getting some graduated ND filters (i found cokin ones good) you would almost definately need a tripod imho

    What camera are you using?

    I like the second picture but the horizon is dropping slightly to the left. Great colors.
