Nothing in the sky this night so I tried to make the best of it.

Not bad, I can see some digital noise in the rocks down bottom. clean that up with your CS6. I'm also curious why you are working in Adobe RGB.
The following is copied from here: http://www.cambridgein​colour.com …als/sRGB-AdobeRGB1998.htm (external link)
My advice is to know which colors your image uses, and whether these can benefit from the additional colors afforded by Adobe RGB 1998. Ask yourself: do you really need the richer cyan-green midtones, orange-magenta highlights, or green shadows? Will these colors also be visible in the final print? Will these differences even be noticeable? If you've answered "no" to any of these questions, then you would be better served using sRGB. sRGB will make the most of your bit depth because it allocates more bits to encoding the colors present in your image. In addition, sRGB can simplify your workflow since this color space is also used for displaying images on the internet.

Agree with the sRGB comments. I like the orange glow and its reflection in the water. I think you got a lot out of what you had to work with. I would suggest making the foreground shoreline darker. There are distracting elements there in my opinion.

I really like this shot. Nice capture. But I think you have too much foreground. I'd suggest cropping about 1/2 or more (or all) of the foreground rocks out.

I like the colors you got here, but I feel that you are lacking a good subject. I think if you got much tighter on the group of rocks in the water and isolated them in the still lake with color reflected you might have come up with something quite nice.

Thank you for the comments. I recently moved to CS6 so perhaps Adobe RBG was the default? Not sure, but I'll fix that, thanks.

I also agree removing most of the foreground rocks looks better. Probably even a little tighter than Qbx's version.

Thanks again!
