I understand the Golden hour. I justs sometime can't get out of the house until my daughter goes to sleep. By then, it is late at night, beside, I like taking pictures at night, it is fun.

I just took this one last night and I tried a few White Balance setting. Is this any better? Do you think the spot light is killing it?

G'day raylee

Your image is a good bit of camera work

I reckon tho your image would be more visually dramatic as this ...


Thoughts??

I was thinking along similar lines, that a lot of the foreground water was not doing anything for the photo, though my crop isn't as drastic. The spotlight didn't bother me, and in fact its reflection in the water adds to the photo.
My thought is that the reddish cast to the whole photo isn't really attractive, so I reset the color cast, then used Photoimpact's HDR to give it a little boost.

Thanks, after seeing what you did, I do agree that there was too much water.
