I just got back from a nice couple of days on the coast. Here are some sunset pics from the only night we could see the sun at sunset. Hope you like them.

With a little work I was able to bring out the fantastic detail in the clouds over the coastline.

On our way out to the point of the headland were I took the sunset photos my wife and I passed through a thicket of trees. I was tying my shoe and my wife was holding the camera when she snapped a couple of photos of the dark interior of the thicket. She captured one of my favorite shots of the trip.

Like the last one. Tried a bit of PS in the Shadow/Highlight adjustment.

Whatever you did it really works! If only you applied it to the land below it : )

I quite liked#1 but I must say, as with Walter, my favourite is #4, which make meadmire the photographic skill your wifeperformed!

Thanks Walter, I tweaked it a little myself but I liked the dark mysterious quality so I tried not to over do it. I think though, after seeing your edit, I could take it a little farther and still kept the mystery.
Much obliged,
Steve

Thank you for your compliment (I will pass it along to my wife) and suggestion. I will have to see if I can isolate the darker land and try and bring it out a little more as per your suggestion.
