Golden

The setting sunlight so intense, I lowered the saturation in this shot (don't think I've ever done that) - it otherwise looked too fake! Have a golden weekend.

Spectacular!

Buena foto, bonitos colores. La imagen tiene
su pequeña complicación: mucha luz en lo
Alto de la torre y cielo, y apenas luz, en
la zona baja, teniendo que compensar el
diafragma, y haciendo después un buen revelado.
La foto esta bastante bien.
Un saludo, Ángel

You certainly caught a radiant moment there Lulu, beautiful glow coming off the horizon. Happy weekend to yourself and Mr. LOL.

You got yourself a cracking shot, Lulu. Love the tones and well done on experimenting. Have a warm weekend.

That's beautiful--the color makes me think of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco!

As Janice says in Friends: Oh. my. gawd. Glad you toned it down otherwise I may have been blinded.

Beautiful! Know what you mean - snow shots are difficult when also sun is involved!

Wow, this is amazing, Jude! Seeing your photo makes me wishing for snow (but maybe with higher temperatures… ;-) )
Have a fantastic 2014!

Great timing. The light contrast is amazing!

I've never done that either, except afterwards in a goto editing program, but like the effect in camera.
