    I've only had my camera for 6 months now,
    so a lot of these are my first attempts at
    getting good shots. :lol:

    They are all pretty much the same, but I like #2 the best. To me 3 is a bit dark and 4 is a bit over produced.

    Thanks! I see what you mean with number 4,
    but I really like the deep orange that came out.
    You're right, it does look like I left the shutter
    open a little too long.

    I love the colors! Very nice!!

    One thing I would suggest is to move the horizon from the center of the frame (Horizon Positioning). Images feel more balanced when you move the horizon from the center and then decide which you want to include more of, the sky or the ground.

    Although, there are so may great colors and tones in the water and the sky, but I would still explore composing without the horizon in the center. Your photos said OK to edit, so I hope you don't mind (I can take them down), here's a couple crops of the first one to illustrate the concept. Cropping takes away some things, but this is just to give an idea about different ways to shoot a horizon:

    ^ Hey thanks! I was skimming over the link you
    posted, and there's a lot of info in there I never
    even thought of! I don't mind the edits, as a matter
    of fact I'm glad you showed me the different ways
    to shoot the horizion. The last edit looks really good.


    Here's one more as the sun was disappearing!
