Glorious evening ...

Glorious evening ...
I drive past this house each day. There is something about reflections on still water that always grabs my attention. This time I made a stop with the intention to make an image about the beautiful mood of a quiet spring evening. I hope some of it is delivered through this one.

The image is an HDR of 3 exposures with the smallest possible apperture. I use apperture priority mode most of the time now. In photoshop I did a duplicate layer with soft light blending mode and 30% opacity. Curves, a second curves layer to preserve the cyan colors above the horizon. Selective colors too boost the warm colors of the sunset. Dodge and burn. Straighten. Cloning and healing to remove sensor dust, distracting grass and a boulder in the foreground.
