    I missed the shot I was going for because when I first saw this scene I didn't have my camera. This shot was taken a few days after and because of the rotation of the earth the sunset was in a different spot. Hopefully it turned out ok. What you guys think?

    Beautiful shot! Love the colors.

    What is that line going across the shot just above the hills?

    Thanks for the comments.

    This shot was taken on top of a mountain, so the line is the separation of the upper and lower atmosphere. I was surprised at how visible the separation was. During the day you can easily see a light blue with a distinct separation to a dark blue.

    I like it!
    The lighting from the sun makes the pic even though it's not in the frame.
    BTW, I can see the line quite clearly but I thought it was just the edge of a cloud, same thing really.

    Nice colors. Orange and black or tan and black seem to be congruent colors. I would have loved being there.

    What did the original look like before the post editing?

    That's really interresting. :smileys: :lol: :lol:

    Frame it. Hang it. Light it. Sit back with a cold one and admire it endlessly. :thumbsup:

    It actually looked pretty close. All I did was slightly adjusted the color and then did a standard sharping in Photoshop to correct the softness present in all digital cameras.

    It's more a combination of the earth's axis rotation and its rotation around the sun, but I didn't want to bore you guys with the details. ;) The first time the sun(itself) set to the left of the tree but it's on the right side for this picture. The sunset as a whole set in the same general westernly area.

    Anyway, I thought it would have looked better with the sun glowing behind the mountain, but oh well.
