There was a 4,800 hectare forest fire just 10Km west of the park. It started as 1,900 hectares then grew to 4,800 in just 3 days. It is now at 7,200 hectares with no end in sight... This is some of the smoke from it.

You're getting pretty darn good Kyle.

Agreed.

Nevertheless the anal retentive (or is that anal-retentive?) part of me wants to reach out and level the horizon on that gorgeous sunset. This is probably a result of the slight sensor misalignment on my Nikon D50 coupled with my penchant for wide angle lenses. Tilted horizons drove me nuts and obviously I have not recovered. :screwy:

This is where Photoshop can be your best friend. Post-processing FTW!

If you don't care to spend the $$$ for photoshop you can use "The Gimp" which has free versions for Linux, Mac and Windows. It doesn't have the complete capabilities of Photoshop but is more than capable to handle a myriad of photo editing tasks. Not having used Photoshop I can't compare ease of use.

Uggh, now that you pointed it out, it's driving me a bit crazy!! :bang head

Definitely, I need to get into this and learn to use Gimp. :)

Or you could follow the instruction from the photo class I took after getting my T3i. "Make the horizon parallel to the earth or fix it with software!" :) (the instructor was a LOT uglier than that in class, had a real thing about the horizon...point taken).
Other than that small flaw, your work is looking great! And thanks for keeping this thread alive too. Going on vacation soon, hopefully I'll have something to contribute at the end of it. :D

Nice sunset. First thing that came to mine was "War of the worlds." No accident, I'm sure.

Are there really three water towers (if that's what they are) or was this done by careful shooting and post processing? (If you don't mind revealing this information.)

What software are you using for post processing? You are using it well, whatever it may be. :thup:
