    You did not elaborate on the physical condition...

    and it is due to this restricted physical condition that spoils the otherwise nice sunset picture.

    the distant hills and water should have make a nice composition of the sunset.

    Compostion is always the first step to successful static subject photography...e.g. landscape, city scape, nature, scenery, still life, table tops, portraiture.

    Hi cabbySHE,
    I want to learn. I do not get "You did not elaborate on the physical condition". What're these conditions? I was taking it from a sliding window. Thanks.

    Hi denniskee
    Any suggestion to make it 'boomz'? :P Increasing the contrast in PP can work? Thanks.

    try playing with curves command in adobe photoshop.

    It should bring out the color. IMO

    The foreground is distracting and non-complementing to the subject. You might wanna go for a tighter crop to accentuate subject.

    The window view is somehow constrained.

    From the same angle if /or possible...raise it another 6 metres higher, you might have a breathe taking view. Then, the rest of those post photo adjustment can comes in.

    That's what I mean physical condition.
