    I'm unsure of this picture. I do like it, but wondered if it was "too much".
    Thing is, I took it at about 7am, and it's ALMOST SOOC - slight increase in saturation and clarity. What does everyone think?

    Yes. You can see the colors and highlights have clipped or are about to clip around the sun.

    They have gone, burnt out...but as usual, some people like it, and some don't! The colours, however, are very close to natural.

    Personally I think the sky is really blown out.

    I prefer sunsets that have the sky properly exposed, even if the land is way underexposed in the process.

    Thats just me though...

    I dont like the brightness of the sky.

    I also dont like how your horizon line is more or less in the middle of your frame. Cropping out some of the sky might help. Something like this

    I like the colour palette, but I find my eye drawn to the embossing along the edges. It would be really nice for me without the rooftop.

    Although quite a lot of people would appreciate it, I couldn't remove the houses! :)

    The "embossing" along the edges is only a device I use on my web images, not on originals. Try to look beyond that, if you can.

    Cheers for the feedback.
