    A few from one of my Cotswold training walks last week (I'm watching sunsets 2-3 times a week at present :smashin:)

    I tried to HDR this one but the noise coming from upping the ex compensation was horrendous.

    3. Antenna station on Stoke Hill

    Any C&C welcome :thumbsup:

    Some really lovely skies on those. as you pointed out on 1 and 2, some foreground interest always helps, which you've sorted with #3.

    Have you tried a graduated filter to darken the sky. I think a wheat field or similar with warm sunset light on it with those skies above would look excellent, and a graduated filter will let you get the sky and the land exposed correctly.

    Yeah foreground interest was pretty much non-existant (well, there was a manky hedge...:rolleyes:).

    I'm thinking I need to invest in a set of filters. Thanks for the advice Tobers. :smashin:
