    Took this picture a week ago on the headlands. Let me know what you think and how it can be approved!! Thanks!

    I added one more for good measure, just a random picture I took one night.

    This one may be a bit more in focus?

    Use a good, stable tripod and set the proper white balance.

    Focus is off and WB definitely needs to be set correctly.

    Its a little blurry maybe from the tripod. so like the others said. Its a night shot i know but you can get it look right. mess with the white balance and maybe the color curves to fine tune it until its what you want it to look like. It looks like the color is just as it came out of the camera and very too orange. Good potential tho!

    Hope you dont mind. I just pulled the red out and bumped the blue a little because it turned green on me after the red was out. Little sharpness, contrast, and brightness. took 20 sec.

    not sure if you mean photobucket or photoshop. If you are using photoshop i could not tell you how to do it. I dont have it but other would be able to let you know. There should be a way to adjust the blue, red, and greens atleast. Some PS programs you can do A LOT MORE with the colors. I use the "Photo pro" program that came with my camera.
