    I like the second picture, but the foreground is still far to dark. I was toying with sunset shots tonight and had the same prob. I am a newb to photography, so maybe someone can help us both out.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I'm just a begginer as well but I will give you my two cents for what they are worth. I think cropping out the cars and buildings was a definate improvment, but I like the color in the first photo more. The second has lost all of the purple cast the origional had. I think the original sky needs to be darkened but not as much as in the second version. Then again I could be way off or it could just be my monitors. As for the forground I think the pure black looks fine after the crop.

    I like the crop alot. Mind you, I prefer the colours of the original mate. Just go with the crop. Also, I like the foreground dark - especially with the black tree jutting up like that. For me, just crop it and its a stunning shot.

    Even the orginal looks like someone had tampered with the colors.

    I think both of the images are nice exercises in color.
    I prefer the first over the 2nd. It suggests that rules of composition aren't always necessary for a pleasant shot.

    Last one is dead perfect Cruisin (in my humble opinion). Well done mate. I'd even hang it.
