    The second is clearly my favourite and I like that you kept that line of land at the bottom as an "anchor" for that sky! It could do with a slightly more "sculptured" definition, though, I think, like upping the shadow levels from 0 to 12 or 15, and likewise upping the highlight levels from 255 to maybe 235 (or wouldn't that rather be: lowering?), and if then the yellow saturation (only that, no other colour) could be intensified and a bit of unsharp mask (not too much!) were applied, I think that one'd really be breathtaking!

    Thanks Lafoto. Here's another from today. The sun was behind a group of clouds at sunset and here is the only glimpse of the sun peaking through.

    Thanks Rich. I'm not the best landscape photographer, but practice helps me get better. Glad you like it.

    Isn't that in Los Lunas?

    Why is it that Albuquerque has the most beautiful sunsets? The Sandias are my favorite mountains in the world. I love how they change colors in seasons and in sunsets!!! I want to see you post more. That last one was my favorite!

    If you're fairly familiar with ABQ all these recent shots are close to my house on the West Mesa. I live close to Paseo del Norte and Golf Course rd.

    Thanks for the compliments on this thread and my other.
