    Sometimes when photos don't come out as planned, Photoshop can be your best friend...

    Oops. I just did some quick color correcting. I just love doing it, usually you can't tell how bad a photo is until you cc it.

    Rule of Thirds

    You offerred a lot of good shots. If I could make one suggestion, resist the urge to place the subject of your photo in the center of the image. Learn the Rule of Thirds and apply it. If your camera has selectable focus points try shifting them off-center. This keeps you from having to use the focus & recompose method, which sometimes results in poor exposures or out of focus images.

    For sunsets, get there early and stay late. The time that it takes for the sun to sink from when it is just above the horizon is very short. Sunsets take patience. Also, it has to be pretty dark to get the really saturated colors that pop (without using color correcting software).

    Peace,

    Curtis
