New 17-70 arrives Wednesday. Last chance today to catch a sunset with the outgoing 28-70 f2.8.

I know a lot of people don't like flare but I was aiming for it in shot #1.

Nothing wrong with the flare - would be dull without it. What bothers me is the two sticks poking down from the top.

I think it works quite well. Nice shot.

That's the only thing that bugs me about it as well but the shot looks flat and odd with them cropped out. If you look hard enough at shot #2, you can work out where shot #1 was taken from so we'll just call them waypoints yeah? :lol:

I have to agree that the first one is great. The color is perfect and there is just enough light on the foreground to show some detail and not take away from the sky.

But those sticks coming in from the top have to go. :) Do not crop the image, clone out the sticks.

I would do that but have such a limited experience with Photoshop that I have no clue where to start (I've also never been able to afford/justify the cost of PS). My post shot work tends to be limited to the basic controls in LR4 with the aim being to getting it right with the camera and just the odd tweak in LR. I don't often succeed but I'll keep trying.

I have LR4 and PSE7 on my computer with trial versions of PS CS6 and PSE11 for the time being. Have played with both the later programs to a fasion but so far HATE them both. JMHO.
