I used a tint on this on Picassa, basically because I was bored and wanted to try something new. Opinions are appreciated. Thank-you.

This is superb, Karen!
This tint looks like liquid bronze. This plain landscape is wreathed in a halo of peace and surreal light!

Hi Karen

An attractive sunset, with good sharpness, colour & reflections. I like the graphism & silhouettes. Tfs!

What a grand shot Karen! RICH! This looks like the storm I shot last night! Really cool sharpness and rich warm color. I love the low hanging clouds. Good job on this!

Your creativity born of boredom paid off nicely Karen. Nice composition and lovely effect. Good job
warm regards

Hi Karen, I think your experiment worked on this. It's intense and gives the scene a different mood. Looks like an intense sunset! I like how the house is framed by the cloud on the top and the grasses at the bottom. Nice overall effect achieved. Bravo!! :) Lisa

Hello Karen,

The colours are superb! The varying tones add a lovely ceiling of clouds over the silhouetted building, the glass-like water and the spiky, f/g vegetation.
So calm, so tranquil!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Karen! Mysterious sunset. Wonderful landscape. Amazing shot. Perfect effect. Good luck!

Great shot Karen
The silhouettes work really well. I like the composition with the fence on the left complimenting the fence on the right. A peaceful end of day feeling.

Beautiful Karen, such fiery colours within this sunset. The silhouettes are fantastic too, the reflection couldn't be better. Great job.

Hi Karen,
Great sky details, great reflections and an excellent composition.
I think the tint adds a real dynamic to this shot that enhances the effect of the low hanging sky and the reflections in the water.
Excellent depth of field.
Good job.

Hi Karen,
I missed a few postings of you...this one is great, it breaths a wonderful mood, the silhouettes are dark but not pitch black and that's what I like too. The golden orange glow of the sky is awesome. Great posting Karen!

Dramatic effect you've created with this photo, well captured, warm tones, great detail

Love the silouhettes in this fantastic sunset, the tint you have used works well, nice work.

Hi Karen...beautiful shot..excellent composition, great tones and colors...very well done.

What an intense sunset! The silhoutte of the structures tell the viewer that this is the prairie. Very nice work.

Hi Karen,

Superb PP work and composition.
Amazing colours of the photo...very beautiful!


HI Karen,

Beautiful, peaceful, tranquil setting. The lighting is enchanting and moody. Good sharpness to this photo. TFS.


I think your "postprocessing out of boredom" made quite a "different" sunset photo of this one, Karen. Almost duotone, peaceful, meditative, with a captivating composition. I particularly like the silhouettes of the fences in the water, as well as the fact that the grassy foreground almost looks like a reflection of the dark clouds in the sky. A nice parallelism.
TFS & kind regards,
