Killing time in small town Alabama

Sunset Stop Sign: Stevenson, Alabama; Jan 15, 2011

Was glad to finally get out in all this snow we’ve had & get some pics.  I took a few while driving – which I do not recommend btw.  I wasn’t technically driving when I took this one though, since I was appropriately stopped.

Was trying to capture the gorgeous pinks & purples of the sunset, but didn’t quite get it.  I was able to pull it out some more in editing, but the real thing was 100x better.  Did fiddle with some settings on my camera last night & made some tweaks that will hopefully go a long way towards capturing truer colors.

For contrast, here’s the unedited original.  What do you think of the changes?
