    Went for a photo walk the other night with my brothers. There was a very orange sunset that night and I liked how the sun reflected off the water. This is a crop of one of the shots. It's not the most exciting picture but I kind of like how it turned out. Thanks.

    "Crop the bottom out"...because there's a bit too much space below the intended subject. I really like the colors in this photo, how much post-work? (color balance, etc.)

    Here's the cropped version. I still like the reflections in the water but I think I may have lost some definition.

    jamagica - as for the post, I used Aperture 2 to increase the blacks a bit, reduce the brightness and then adjust the levels a little. The original was pretty flat.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Reflections are great, but this one is really too subtle to notice. When I said "crop the bottom out," I meant just that. Crop up close to the buoy past the reflection. I wouldn't have taken out the sides. Now it feels too tight.
