Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so jealous of this shot - I love the blue color. It's definitely going in my favorites!

Agree.

I do really like the rest of the photo however, especially the dock and clouds. What post processing did you do for this image?


Thanks, both to you and Colette. The funny thing about this is that one of the things I did in postprocessing was to burn in the lights across the shore to more or less eliminate them. I wanted the focus of the shot to be the sky. Other than that, I cloned out a buoy, and if I recall right, used a gradient adjustment layer to bring up the light in the water slightly and deemphasize the dock (as I recall--I also was using a GND filter when shooting, upside down, but I'll have to check to see if this is one of those or if it was done in software). The soft feel to the water is due to the long exposure.

I'll see if I can dig up the original and post it in the landscape forum thread.

Good depth produced through the use of a foreground object (dock) as well as the leading line of the river and the clouds. For more interest though I feel the need for some lights in the houses on the far shore.

I think the subtlety of this picture was underappreciated... though I'm glad to see it scored above 6.

Very nice, tons of detail, and the eye is drawn to that horizon.

Has a good feel. Little spooky, little romantic all in one. The blue is good the skyline is lovely.

What a lovely shade of blue. The serenity and the streaking white light as it peeks above the land is hypnotic. 7
