Looking Southeast just after Moonrise and before sunset over my back fence.

Nice sky colors. Number two is my pick, but I almost want to crop it a bit and make it all about the cloud and moon.

Thanks, David. I should give that a shot.

Very peaceful, Roger! I agree with the points above about cropping #2

I like the crop of the cloud shot you have edited but I think comp-wise #4 is my favorite. Might be tempted to raise the shadows a touch to enhance the reflection of the sun in the road and give it a slight straighten as it leans a bit to the left but it is a lovely peaceful scene.

Re-edit of #4 as requested. I ran it through DXO Optics Pro 11 lens correction and did a straighten in PhotoImpact as well as bringing up the shadows. Is this more like it?

To my eyes the edit has made a big difference, definitely my pick of the set. Love those oranges.

Beautiful sunset pics Roger. Not everyone can see them like that. I reckon your edit could go a bit further with the shadows. I played with it and it works for me :)
