Photographed the sun setting on Atlanta the other day after taking the snake pictures.

I prefer a bit more sky, but that's just me.

I used Photoshop to move the whole image down, then 'Rectangular Marque Tool' to highlight the plain section of sky, the Edit/Transform/Scale to increase the vertical size to fill the blank section created by moving the image down.

This technique works most times - obviously, anything with detail is going to get distorted & there's a limit to how much you can stretch things but it's better than cloning.

Catbells,

I agree. I think your modifications are an improvement. Thanks for the tips.

Thanks for explaining how to do this - I was looking at a couple of my sunset photos this morning and thinking that this technique could help a number of them. I'm going to have to try it, because too many of mine have too much black terrain and not enough sky. Composition isn't easy for me at all.
