Today's photo was taken at the end of a pier on Chincoteague Island, Virginia in July of this year during a weekend trip to the beach. The pier was a shared pier between the hotel that we stayed at and a set of vacation homes. This was, by far, the best sunset of the entire trip, and was worth waiting for (we also managed to get in some fishing waiting for the sunset as well, just in case it was not as spectacular as I was hoping for!).
The shot is a combination of a -2, 0, and +2 bracketed exposure, with some extra work done on the sky (color and saturation) and water (desaturation and smoothing). The shot was taken looking directly west from the pier, and is looking over an inlet between Chincoteague Island and Wallops Island, from where some NASA and private sector rockets, like Space X, have been launched since the end of the space shuttle missions from Florida.
