Here is a little sunset picture I shot a couple years ago while on a vacation tour of the central California coast. 35mm Velvia slide scan.

Great shot but the horizon is a couple degrees off it looks like. It's a really fun silhouette.

Naw, it's not the horizon that crooked. It's the ocean! Or is it the nut behind the camera?

You are right but I don't know how to replace an image on photobucket with an edited one and keep the same name for the link.

(Edit) Never mind I thought Photobucket assigned its own filename for submitted pictures, but it doesn't. It uses the name you supply. So I'll go fix it!

(Edit2) It took a couple tries but I got it straightened and posted at the right size!

Very nice! I love the scrub of trees and the sharpness of the twigs.

I love sunset / sunrise shots. This one is great. I like all that interesting "stuff" just to the right of the sun. It looks like a sculpture.

Jack, yes, this is the place.

There were about a dozen people jockeying for a position to get this same shot. The ideal lighting only lasted about five minutes. I waited about twenty minutes to get the shot.

Very pretty shot, Cal! You did a great job composing the image and then with the exposure.
