    Thanks for the suggestion, I think I agree. Do you think it's better like this:

    I really like your image too, nice composition. Your image of the arc does not work here, perhaps a bad link?

    Absolutely. Thanks for the heads up on the arch pic. I'll have to fix it at lunch. Work doesn't allow me to access my website to fix the link.

    Here's another picture of the same evening:

    This is an HDR of three shots. I later blended the sky of one of the original exposures that I edited individually into the image again, to get more detail in the sky.

    Prospero: Have you tried using shadow/highlights in photoshop to balance the photo out more? I think the bright foreground is a tad distracting. Cool picture though it makes me think of the Nile river or something, the sky is awesome!


    I hope you don't mind, I just wanted to post an example of what I was talking about with shadow/highlights.

    I kept the left side of the image dark intentionally, to enhance the effect which was there in reality. The reed which is blown this way by the storm of the previous evening was lit by the sun, while the reed which was still standing was in it's own shadow. I kept the foreground bright because I thought it added depth to the picture. I thought the dark left side also enhanced this effect. I can see that this decision probably does not work for everyone.

    Thanks for your comment, though. Looking at it again, I did notice a blueish color cast in the foreground; I fixed that now.
    I don't mind you editing my picture at all.
