I like the painting more than the photo.
One idea - the reds might be a bit oversaturated, but it might be the image.

It is nice to see a painting that exceeds the beauty of the photo.

Re: sunset, lake Oconee, GA

Thank you for appreciating my art. I almost gave up on this one; the sky was painted several times. It's hard to put down the brush sometimes.
