This is an HDR (Photomatixs Pro). I thought about using a GND to control the sunset, but left all of them at home.

Excellent image! I like the way you composed it (though I wish the horizon line is not dead center), and the focal length choice works really well here. What lens did you use and the settings for the HDR?

Excellent point. Thank you. I actually did not notice the horizon was in the "dead center." Easy fix - see below. I used a Canon 16-35/2/.8 and a 5D III set in the HDR mode. I believe the setting was +/- 2EV. I saved the original raw captures to work on in Photomatrix.

That little fix transformed the image! You should frame it for your house.

Nicely done. Consider adding some blacks back into the deeper shadows. HDR can lighten the blacks too much, increasing shadow detail but reducing the drama of contrast.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have often wondered how these images look on someone else's monitor in terms of color and exposure. Is there any way to really know? Your thoughts?
