When horizons glow

Shot a while back in Aruba, when I was experimenting with placing the horizon in the middle of the image. Some of the results can be seen here here and here.

    Wonderful landscape image, perfectly exposed. I love how that lone star (is it a star?) is at the focal point.
    My only criticism is that the horizon seems to slope just a tiny bit, though it could either be an optical illusion or the fact that I'm slightly hung over this morning. :-)
    By the way, I agree about the breaking of the "rule" for this image. You've captured lovely details in both the sky and water, and by following the rule you'd be losing lots of these details and unbalancing the image.

    Aylesbury_Mark: the horizon seems straight in CS4. Might be an optical illusion. Thanks for your comments and Happy 2010!
