    It was worth the speeding, wasn't it?
    Still a tad blown in the brightest part of the sky, but ... that is the sun for you! :D

    And an advice on the side: when you link your pics from Photobucket to here, click on the third of the offered URLs, the one that reads "IMG-code". That will immediately wrap the [​IMG]

    You could have done the normal metering and then tell the camera to underexpose by 1 or even 2 stops.
    Don't know what you are working with, but deliberate underexposure is also possible with a good many compact digital cameras (like with my Powershot, for example). Or you could have metered EXACTLY for that bright spot in the sky? But you might have lost a lot in the shadow parts then .......!?!?! :scratch:

    without HDR (heck even with) you're always going to blow the sun out. The question is how much. This could use to be a little darker because I think it would make the sky more dramatic, and I think it could use slightly less water. It's a cool picture though, and great scenery for a sunset.

    Shoot RAW, you can then correct when processing the image.

    I like the amount of water, great depth of the picture. Beautiful
