Here is a picture I took about a half hour ago of the dusk sky with my Fuji F10. It was taken at ISO200 to prevent bluring, and I like even how at the 100% on the full resolution version, there is no noise. I do not think I have seen noiseless sky produced by a compact camera at ISO200 or higher before. Sadly, there is still slight purple fringing, but nothing significantly distracting. The ground looks dark because it was, not underexposure.

Let me know what you think. Critique is accepted, I want to get better at composition.

hey sick.

your composition was fine, but a little ps help and you end up with something like this.

hope you don't mind if i toyed a bit with your shot.

i do a lot of sky/water shooting myself and sometimes the camera doesn't quite

do the shot justice.

Hey man, very nice job. I wonder if the camera's chrome mode would better emphasize the colors. I'll have to experminet with that. So just out of curiousisty, what did you change? Color levels?

I was messing around with the pic, I the best way I found to make the colors richer was to reduce the gamma 1.75. Here is my version made from the original. Thanks for the pointer. I originally tried to adjust color levels, but it would make it too purple or take out too much blue. Next time I'm photgraphing a scene like this, I may lower exposure compensation and turn on chrome mode. What do you think?

a little crop, cloned out the branch on the top and played with the curves a bit.

actually, a bit more curve alteration and a little saturation boost and you get this...
