ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/15
Galleries: Water, Seascapes

The top and bottom borders were part of the hand rails on one of the piers, so the border was created as I took the shot. Auto contrast, adjusted curves, boosted saturation, in Colour Balance I then boosted red, blue and magenta on the highlights. Unsharp Mask, and NeatImage.

Excellent color and mood. And these handrails really frame the scene well!

Stunning light and colors. Wonderful composition! I don't think people realize how difficult it really is to get a really quality sunset shot like this. Nice work. 9

I like the natural framing of this.. its like a letterbox movie, and the shot has a real cinematographic feel to it. Beautiful colours, crisp and clear photograph. Well done!! 10

Beautiful colors. I like this photo a lot! Only one thing that I would have changed is not having the horizon exactly in the middle. I would have either shown more sky or more water. Other than that, wonderful!

I don't usually like landscapes but I like the colors and composition of this one. I don't think the view through the handrails have enhanced your shot. But I like it as a whole.

Excellent colours. Maybe could have cropped out the rails.9

Excellent shot, the colours are fantastic. Nicely picks out the lights, and the railings are a great way to frame it adding a sort of cinematic feel to the shot. Great job!

A beautiful image, worthy of being on a greetings card or one of the better postcards. I like the use of the rails to frame and the wonderful colours of the sky reflected in the water. I also like the feeling of distance - as though one is separated from the hustle and bustle and noise of the city itself.

Nice framing, could be a bit much. Great view of the city!

Like the way the rails frame this shot. Outstanding color and exposure. Too bad the water couldn't be a little calmer. Very well done -8

Was the sky this color or did you use a filter or two.
07/02/2003 10:43:43 PM

Lovely shot and I actually find the framing of the hand rails very appealing

Wonderful colors, and the composition is strong too. Great work.

This is like a glorious postcard. The framing of the posts is great, giving it a movie-screen kind of look. Awesome.

I don't think the rails offer anything to the shot here.....they could get cropped out. The shot is really nice, lovely colors, light.

Great colors here. Typically I don't like the horizon in the middle of the frame. It kinda works here though because of the symmetry created by the rails. Nice shot.

Very pretty colours. I like the divided-in-half composition, too. Nice one. This should do well, I think.
