Very apocalyptic! It looks like the sea is on fire, kind of like what happens to parts of the Mississippi River downstream from the chemical factories. Great pix, as usual.

465 - Thank you so much for the kind words. I really appreciate it. We are so lucky to be able to witness this regularly.
REXOFSB - It was pretty intense. Like an atom bomb went off. There were dozens of people watching it with me at the Douglas. Thanks again for all the support.
470P - C'mon you anonymous person. I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself. This is just me expressing my creativity and sharing the beauty of our town. Obviously it didn't look EXACTLY like that. If you had read the description, you would have seen that I said I enhanced the saturation. This is the way I choose to remember it. You can choose to remember it with more grey and dull colors if you want, but what was the point of your comment? Wasn't helpful or informative or even a critique. Just enjoy the sunset however you want and let me do the same. Thanks.

Not sunset photos. Cartoon of sunset.

Great captures Brian and artistic editing. Isn't it great you have the freedom & ability to create art the way you visualize it in your mind.

Brian, your photos are beautiful! Well worth framing. Pay no attention to the nay-sayers, puffing up their egos.

I love how your mind works, Brian! I usually wear orange colored glasses to see the world in such brilliant colors! Gorgeous art, your rendition of the sunsets!

Brian. If you can, please free your mind from the residue left by the trail you blaze. Frontiers found are worlds known to others. Should you forge, create and expand your boundaries, be willing to alter, encroach and change those that already exist. You're bending the curve, knotting the fray. The medium you use has been traditionally construed as truthful. There are those who see photography only as a grasp of what's perceived real. You change that. Play, have fun, twist, explore. But remember you're doing it in a world and not just an imagination. Some of your best growth will come from the beatings you take. Pruned.

When I look at a sunset I see, Colors that are only apparent to me, But when others see the same exact sky, What they see is different from you and I.
But at the end of the beautiful day, It is what it is, come what may, And if Brian sees a darker hue, What does it matter to me and to you?
I, for one, am amazed, in fact, That this would be open for attack, That one man's joy in sharing his art Would begat another's delight in tearing it apart!

Everyone to one's own taste. Some artists paint with saturated colors and their works sell. Others don't, and their works sell. The good thing is the acknowledgement of adjusting the saturation up front. Thus anyone expecting natural colors, has been forewarned.
Personally, I do not like to see cyan in the sky emphasized to such a degree - but that is my taste. However, the pictures are nice to view, regardless. It is always mind-opening to view the work of others even if not to one's taste, and get from it what one can.

2557... I am in total accord with your thoughts on the matter. This may not be my cup of tea but it's illuminating to see someone for whom it is. Vive la difference.

You post a picture because you like it, Brian. Waste of time responding to those who don't. Almost as big a waste of time as commenting negatively about a picture in the first place.
