Hi everybody! Here's a shot I took in Porkala (a point outside Helsinki in Finland) at sunset a few weeks ago. Processed RAW in PS, cropped, burned, dodged and added the frame.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM | Cokin X120 + X121 Graduated Grey | ISO100 | f/22 | 1/6secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.
