Reworked and resubmitted
Taken at Pine Island in FL, F3.5, 1/60, 40mm, ISO 400, Orton applied along with mirror and flood filter. While I did up the saturation somewhat, I did not adjust it that much. This was one of the most colorful and beautiful sunset skies I have seen since moving to this part of Florida!

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe May 18, 2007

Carol, I am having computer problems. I resent my message plus another message to you, but for some reason, I got a message that one of them was undeliverable. I will keep trying, but if you don't hear back from me for a few days, I'm taking the comp. in Monday to be looked at. I WILL get the message to you as soon as I can. Sorry about this. I would contact you personally, but I'm afraid that wouldn't go through either. #4298949
