Painted Light -Magnetic Island sunset photograph1

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This photo has had minimal-to-no post processing. It was an attempt to create a completely natural capture that forced one to contemplate reality. Painted Light. A second photo of this sunset at Magnetic Island, in far-north Queensland, has been submitted as a reference to prove this is not a manipulated image (besides slow shuuter speed to create a water blur). The second sunset capture is lighter in colour as it was taken 4 minutes earlier. Canon 5D MarkII, 28-300mm lens@200 focal length, ISO 100, 13sec exposure, Tripod, UV filter.

Thank you Alireza and Madame X Orivado. Just occurred to me the islands look like a crocodile. Head on the left, tail right.
