Is It Cheating?

I really like this image I snapped at sunset tonight…

…but it’s not precisely the image I captured. The original image looks like this:

I like the colors and feel, but not the composition. It feels unbalanced. So i flipped it upside down. Is that cheating?

This one is anchored by the silhouetted trees in the foreground.

Tech stuff: Nikon D7000 with 85mm f/1.4 lens

    one of my altered states images has a cloudy sky … the observant greg cooper noted that the cloud image was upside down! go figure … no one else has noticed so i say cheat … if someone notices say you were doing a head stand when you took the photo!
