    Just playing. This picture grew on me over a period of time. Funny how they do that. I did a little PP work from the original to give the sky a little more saturation. I'm still very much learning the PP ropes (more like rope bridge of death), but baby steps....

    C&C is always welcome!

    I kinda like this. :) I wish that scraggly tree on the left wasn't there, but it's not too distracting.

    I guess I think a lot like misstwinklytoes. If that foliage wasn't there, this would be an epic capture. But you can't do anything about that.

    Great pic!

    I think the sunset completes the shot. I say, clone the trees out though. They're not doing the shot justice.

    Awww, poor you: boring sunset getting in the way with your lovely shot of some powerlines ;) ;) ;)! How about a conversion. When it's all black&white the sunset might no longer be as intrusive? ;) ;) ;)

    Those sunsets are really annoying! They're everywhere! Every time you think you've got a nice shot, you get home and find there was a sunset in the picture.

    Thanks a lot everyone for the hilarious comments and your critiques!

    I'm still on the fence about the tree in the left and the trees in general. On one hand, I like the silhouettes they provide. On the other, they DO pull your eye away a bit from the reason for the shot. But I generally think they add to the shot, IMO.

    Concerning the tree in the left corner, I can see how it sticks out in a "one of these is not like the other" but in context this was in Mid-October. I'll take a stab and attempt to clone it out.
