It actually wasn't nearly as dark as this picture would make it seem.... methinks this type of picture might be a little more on the tricky side than I first thought, although I do like this picture.

Sunsets are tricky. You did a very creditable job on your first attempt.

We have a difficult time seeing what the camera sees and when you combine that with the subtle colors differences that the camera sees that we dont, you've got a lot to work with.

Only change would be to make the horizon closer to the bottom rather than in the middle of the shot.

Thanks! After looking at it again, I agree with you about the horizon needing to be closer to the bottom of the picture. Had I known it was going to turn out so dark at the bottom, I probably would have done that when I took it, but it's obvious when you look at it now.

Now that I've changed my screen theme and I can see your picture more clearly, the horizon isn't near the center as much as I thought. The black on black theme made it appear so. It still needs a tad of movement but no where near as much as I thought before fixing my "Board Theme" in My Account - Preferences.
