Here is the original picture from a series I posted a few days ago called "Coastal Sunset". I originally worked on bringing out the cloud detail. Bahadir suggested trying to do the same with the dark land below the clouds. This is my attempt at doing so. This was the only shot of the three originals that allowed for some additional tweaking.

First the original.

And now the additional lightening of the land portion of the shot. Let me know which you prefer. Thanks, as always, for taking the time to look.

Your composition here, which is most important to me,should be praised in the first place ...and I quite admire your effort of improving it. However, Ithink a somewhat 'deeper' tone ofthe blue would more suitto the skyand themother naturebelow it may require a little 'make up'. Below is a quick take about 1 a.m here : ) Hope you don't mind.Surely you can do amore refined job

Steve, this is a beautifulsunset. I think you did an admirable job of bringing out the detail in the land while preserving the integrity of the sky, clouds and lighting. Number 2 gets my vote. Dan
