[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We spent our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend at a small lake near Merritt, BC, and found this impressive sunset on our first night there.
P120 grad filter was used to help even out the exposure.

Played around with the "smart photo fix" feature in Paintshop Pro for some histogram adjustment and then added some saturation.

Wow.. the sky is so dramatic. The color of the sky makes it even more dramatic. Sorta adds much strength and punch to this picture. I like the even exposure displayed here. Great moment! Thanks for sharing.

Wow a very beautiful sky with warm colours, very good exposure and sharpness. I just think the branch on the left could be cut from the shot.
