    I randomly ran into this last night while looking for another location. I know it is just another sunset picture, but the colors and simplicity of it really seem so peaceful to me.

    It was my first time to catch a sunset amazingly enough. I see pretty ones near my house, but with no good location to capture them!

    No PP color adjustment. I was tempted, but thought, why mess with it when it is so pretty naturally? (But, the saturation was cranked up in camera.)

    Very nice! It's the simple shots i love the most, great colour, too!..

    Did you get a shot without the tree? (just for pure minimalism sake)

    Thank you as always :)

    You mean what happened to it? I have no idea, but it seemed to frame the picture well.

    As a matter of fact, I did! Which do you like better? I can't decided if it needs the tree to break it up or not.

    Thank you! The colors in this other are a little brighter. The sun dropped in a matter of 60 seconds. I couldn't get out of my car fast enough to catch it!

    Which do yall like better?

    You think? I debated taking it out, but I kinda liked it. Still debating if it takes away from it or adds a little detail since it is SUCH a simple picture.

    The horizon is also right in the middle, but with the colors, it just seemed to look best that way. I took some others and they were blah.

    Ah cool! ;)

    Hmm I see what you mean. I think the first one with the tree lends more to the feeling of the place if you know what I mean, lets you chill and empty your mind; The second I think opens your imagination a little bit more and makes you wonder.

    Both are good but I can't decide either!, if push came to shove maybe I'd choose the 1st one.

    Even though the second one is very well executed, I think that the first one is better. The tree gives a nice feeling and mood to the picture.

    Sorry, dumb joke- I'm not too slick today, I meant is that, "the tree", the "one" you have in Texas? Never mind, ... I'm out of sync this week.

    Excellent shot.

    I love them both. The tree definitely adds interest in the first one. I like the color in the second better. I think the second could be improved if the horizon wasn't so close to center. The colors in the second are simply amazing. Nice work.
