WOW. I love the colors. I bet that was an amazing sunset to witness. Also, what made the tops of the clouds so dark?

Looks great! Very nice shot overall!!

Only thing that's bugging me is that the clouds seem to be a bit blown out color/contrast wise -- especially the red ones on the top left - they just seem to lack contrast and definition.

Other than that though this is stunning wallpaper, thanks!

I'm not much of a sunrise/sunset-desktop person, but this is going right up. Awesome!

@bmndibb2 as my mother would always say, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Sure, its another sunrise, but the colors are great.

Nice capture but too over processed for my taste.

Yes. Too over-processed. Especially the red in the clouds as Stretix pointed out. Such a shame too. Really gorgeous shot otherwise.

The sky looks fake in the upper part of the image, but I'm waiting explanations from MasterChief :)

The upper part it's not fake, the problem was the light in that part and i didn't notice in the 5D2 screen.
If i had placed another filter, probably a GND 0.3 SE, but now it's too late. :P
In the PP i recovered a bit the shadows and, well .......,you already know the result.

Ahh, ok makes sense, thanks for the explanation.

Again, fantastic shot nevertheless! :-)

Very nice. However, like the other sunset-water shots, it does not focus as much on the water as I would like it to.

I have to agree. The brightness differential between the sky and the foreground doesn't justify a 0.9 ND filter. On the other hand, you could compensate for that choice in post-processing with Adobe Lightroom, for instance, using the Graduated Filter to restore some exposure to the clouds. Assuming you shot the photo in RAW format, there would still be plenty of image data to work with. Indeed, you could avoid use of the filter altogether and make all the appropriate adjustments in Lightroom. Using a filter when taking the picture, particularly of a fast changing subject like this one, where you don't have time to use more than one filter, locks in your choice. If you make the wrong one, you're stuck. Using Lightroom (or Adobe Camera RAW in Photoshop) instead gives you much more flexibility and control. While some may consider post-processing to be heresy, it's just a tool after all. Every aspect of photography involve tools of one kind or another - and human judgment about which tools to use. There's no good reason to consider one tool more authentic or legitimate than any other. In my opinion the final image is what counts, not the process by which you obtained the image.

Your others works are really very good ! To me this submission is like an experiment that went very wrong [IN MY OPINION] its only my opinion

Photo-realistic water and land elements, under a pastel sky.

You oversaturated the sky. Probably difficult to avoid in this lighting, though. But interestingly enough, the sky looks painted on. Which isn't too bad looking.

Nice composition but the sky really doesn't appeal to me. I just find the colour brightness a bit too overpowering. I imagine that would have been an amazing sunrise to experience first-hand though!

water there appears to be like 3-4 lines or something. Are these flat-bed boats or barges? Or is this a distortion or error with the image? I like the colors of this shot but my eyes keep going to this little area because I'm not sure what these lines are.

What the heck.. my comment got cut-off...

Here's what I wanted to say:

If you look off-center to the left, or just below the middle of the mountains. In the water there appears to be like 3-4 lines or something. Are these flat-bed boats or barges? Or is this a distortion or error with the image? I like the colors of this shot but my eyes keep going to this little area because I'm not sure what these lines are.

The sky also looks fake to me, BUT I saw a sunset in Oklahoma a few weeks ago that looked oddly like this. At the time I couldn't believe the colors were real. Like the photo, but a bit too "vivid" for a wallpaper ( only my opinion ).

Where can i get those GND Hitech 0.9 HE filters in Europe or Holland? Those things are so hard to find!

@BJBProductions, as my mother would say, speak the truth instead of being a politically-correct, brown-nosing sheep.

I haven't seen too many sunrises that are this colorful! Impressive!
