Taken well after sunset

Tripod in back of my truck, shooting down on dock.

Editing: Raw conversion, saturation, crop, added border via canvas resize, resize, smart sharpen, done

i truly expect this to be a mid-5. the shadows will be killed in the voting, but i thought i'd throw it into the title to get it out there that i knew it was a factor. hah, plus i really liked the shadows...the photo is symmetrical, but i really wish the foreground would have matched up on the outsides...i decided to go ahead and submit regardless..
it was the first thought that came to mind, it's a redo of my black and white "symmetry" challenge entry. thought the colors were beautiful this night, so i left them in.

MAYBE a 6 shot, but seriously doubt it. we'll see.

Greetings from the Critique Club -

Nice image and a nice score to boot. You easily met the challenge here. Symmetry caught well. The shadows on the dock really dont bother me at all. I think they are a nice touch and are not distracting at all. You may have had a stronger image without them, but they dont bother me personally.

Nice colors, cool gradient in the sky, the light is good. You did real well with the 30 second exposure. It would have been nice if your foreground was even on the sides, but its not the main focal point of the image so voters let you slide there.

6.4 is nothign to sneeze at. And no votes under 4 as well - that in itself is an accomplishment. You have some really nice work in your portfolio. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing your future entries!

Delightful image. Wonderful colors, though the shadows are a bit harsh given the range of tones everywhere else. Really nice.

nice perspective to add the symmetry - the colors are nice but the shadows across the pier seem to destroy the symmetry actually present. Still a 7 for a good photo
