Thanks Gale, and Vern. I have been playing with K, and this coloring comes from extreme increase in the neutrals. A little color separation curve doesn't hurt it either. Made a nice 11x23 print from it last night.

I find the crop at the bottom a bit tight, maybe just my taste. However the layered orange looks wonderful. I can't follow you on the above, what do you mean by K? Black? :confused:
And what is a color seperation curve?

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. I waited for the light and was actually looking for a bit more, but I will take what I got. Shot this from my deck with the 80-400 handheld. If I remember right, those downtown buildings are about 18 air miles away.

Lovely colour Charles, I would like to see a crop with the buildings taken out from the bottom, it may look ok??
I looked at that, but it lost that distant feeling I was going for.

Agree, lovely colours - great scene too


(shame about the posterisation of the clouds though . . . . . . . . . j/k)
:tongue::wink:

If I went any lower I would have had the tops of nearby homes in the shot. You got it right. K as in CYMK, or black. In lab if you bring the endpoints of the curves of A and B in equal amounts it helps to separate colors and increase saturation.
