This is a terrific shot Ricky. At first it is difficult to see the whole picture but upon looking closer I was drawn into the photo from foreground, midground to bsckground. No mean feat at the best of times. A true dusk photo.

Have you guys tried a two image HRD with one image exposed for the sky and the other image exposed for the foreground?

I had terrible trouble with my exposure too, with the sky especially always seeming so bright. In my image I super-under-exposed to get the sky looking half-way realistic (in manual mode) and the impact was the dock ended up being much darker than it really appeared. I wonder if this isn't something to do with tricks our brain plays, that makes some things appear brighter or darker than they actually are. In any case - a lovely image of a really nice looking spot - maybe a 20 second exposure would have give a nice light trail through the town ;-0

I'm going out on a limb here to say this was the hardest challenge so far. First, I did a bit of research to learn that "dusk" is the darkest part of "twilight" - and that officially it's when the sun is 6˚ below the horizon after sunset. I was amazed that taking photos (due to long exposures) that the sky would be so bright and well lit. I felt that all my photos had lighter skies that I was actually seeing, and I also did various exposure adjustments so it wouldn't look like daytime. There was a storm over the moutons so I got a bit of lightning on the left side. As white as the upper right corner is, it was not like that in reality. Any advice appreciated.
