The subtle pastel shades just seemed to lend itself to an almost abstract study of light.

Love the serenity of this, the colour tones are good.

Very nice. I'd fix the squinty horizon but otherwise leave it as is.

I like it - I too think the horizon needs to be straightened - or made to slant more obviously.

After the horizon is levelled, this will make a great canvas print.

Really like this - this is the type of image that I would be happy have on my wall at home with couple of minor improvements. Agree about straightening the horizon and would recommend the following - add a new empty layer and fill with white; make sure the new layer is at the top of the pile; set the blend mode to soft light; adjust opacity if required. This will turn the heaviness in the sky into a real pastel blue and remove the slight noisy appearance. It will also bring through the pink band in the sky and those whispy clouds a little more. Being extra fussy I would also add a bit of surface blur to totally remove the noise. Steve.

Thanks Steve, this is the next stage for me, to improve on the the processing. It is still very much a dark art to me.
