Challenge: Bits & Pieces (Basic Editing III)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Harwich Port, MA, USA
Date: Jul 31, 2006
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/80
Date Uploaded: Jul 31, 2006

From RAW: really very little PP in the end, even though I used hue/sat, selective color/ and brightness/contrast; all adjustments were small. The most noticeable adjustment is to use selective color in the white channel to lightly tint the hot spot at the top.

Resize, USM, border, save for web. All this detail makes it quality 72, hope that's enough.

This is beautiful, bear. I love the warm evening light and the interesting composition. Truly a lovely "landscape with no horizon line."

the amount of details and colour is amazing, keeping my eyes busy in a good way. I also liked the distortion, it makes the photo appear more interesting at first glance.

And oh, congrats on the 5th placement!

Congratulations on your 5th place, Robt! The golden light is stunning. I love the way the waterline makes a horizon - very clever composition!

I really like the editing here and of course the lighting is great.

Btw, I just noticed you and sherpet shot seashells and I seriously thought about shoot that also but went in a different direction. Had I not Team Outcasts would have to be renamed to Team Seashells. :P

I love the composition in this picture and, overall, it is one of my favorite in this challenge; probably because I live by the ocean and have seen the shells in this light often. Nice entry.

Nice. But I think it would be better if most, if not all, of the water were cropped out.

Very suitable for the challenge, beautiful lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonder if a polorizing filter might have made this more interesting by cutting the reflection on the water.

Meets the challenge well. Photo would work better if you got down on your knees and shot from a lower point of view.
