    Sunset at the river

    Two pictures of sunset at a river. I did quite a lot of editing, so my main question: Is it to much?

    Well first off Im not too thrilled with your composition. Whats the subject? If it is the splash then you should see all of the splash including the reflection. The colors are very saturated, but thats ok since some sunsets do that. I wouldnt say either shot is a wall hanger in my opinion.

    I don't mind the shot, it just needed some tweaking, if it were mine I'd be more inclined to do this with it. ( hope you don't mind the tweaking )

    I didn't give much thought to the reflection, but since you mentioned it, it's all I can see.

    The first image definitely looks better in my opinion. I feel it has been edited a bit too much - saturation wise, if that can be reduced and slightly tweaking done it will look better. The reflection looks great my eyes are drawn to it almost immediately.
