    I think it looks great.

    I tried taking some sunset shots and it was a disaster, so you've got my respect! :lmao:

    This particular interplay of lines is quite whimsical, and your right - what great colors, if not a touch over saturated.

    the power lines ended up being a bonus in the shot, must've been my lucky day.

    I like the gradient going from orange to blue, i think if i cropped it i'd be taking too much out of it.

    I try to avoid getting power lines and poles in my shots at all costs. I have never seen them as the subject before.

    You did a great job here. The HDR process really shines through in how colorful the sky is.

    Nice work.

    At the location I shot this the powerlines are almost impossible to avoid. It turned out better than I thought, although I have taken sunset pics at the same location other times and find myself battling with them.
