I took this shot with a Tokina lens 11-16mm ii @ 11mm
It's The river Nile in Sudan
It was one of the best sunsets this year

need critique about the shot and the processing
Image editing is allowed

Very nice scene! It seems, on my monitor, to have a slightly purple cast, maybe intentional, maybe reality of the time of day. Either way, well done.

Your image is a wonderful waterscape.. Great job !! I added a bit more saturation, but that's all subjective. Some may prefer it as you have it with less saturations, others with more. Its all very subjective. I would of liked to see more detail in the landscape..(trees - wall)

It's pretty, but the halos around the trees kill it for me.

It is a beautiful scene well captured. The halos can be easily darkened so that they are not noticeable. However, it needs a slight rotation to the right of about 0.6 degrees.

Welcome to POTN

QUOTED IMAGE

I prefer the original image. Spectacular. Yes, the halos can be removed. One easy method in Photoshop is to use the clone stamp tool set to darken. And yes, tweak the horizon a bit.

It didn't really need anything, It was great as is.
If I was going to do anything...
Straightened the horizon
Tried to fix halo
gave a slight contrast adjustment

Great photo! I'd say you did a great job on processing. If I were to be super critical I'd suggest lightening just a bit using levels in Photoshop. Maybe try out adding vibrance but not much.
