    Spectacular sunset. Love all the colors - from Aspen yellow to sun-soaked mountains to beautiful blue of the sky.

    Wonderful set! That last pic is a wall hanger.

    EDIT:
    I would, however, do whatever you need to do to straighten that one out. Level won't work. You'll need to do a free transform adjustment.

    Yeah, these are totally awesome, Dan. The fourth one might be my favorite. The countless bare trees almost look like lace, giving the photo a surreal abstract appearance. On the first one, you can't recover any more detail in the moon from the raw file? If not, some people might be tempted to extract the moon from a different frame, size it exactly to the size as it appears in this picture, replace it and never tell. Not naming any names here. LOL. Anyway, awesome job!!

    Oh, so much better with everything leveled and straightened. The reflection makes that shot. Good work!

    I ordered a metal floater to hang based on your suggestion, and appreciate the free transform advice.

    Beautiful...all of them.

    There's nothing finer than fall in the mountains.

    Just a thought...your last image the one that was reprocessed, had you ever consider post processing in BW?

    Again, wonderful images.

    Dan,

    Great set! My favorite is the vertical aspen shot. The minimalistic subject coupled with the spots of bright color make a striking combination. Well done!
