Ah, that would explain it, thanks for the reply. Didn't know HDR was legal in basic, that's handy!

Cheers

If you didnt - GREAT SHOT!!


Congratulations on your ribbon. I'm curious about the sky as well. Unfortunately, I didn't score this very highly because of it. Whether you've spot edited or not, it's quite a distracting mar. How did it happen?

Hey, congratulations on this surprise red ribbon. It's a beautiful photo. Should have been in the top three from the beginning.

You could sell it to the Thai Tourist Board as it would make a great poster (I think it suffers in the details a bit for being constrained to dpc size). (It could also be a good Where's Wally? challenge photo ;-Þ)

With the White in the sky (wish it was sunset) the white in the refection competes too much with the nice golden buildings

there's a reflective quality about this photo that goes with your title. The lighting on the gold buildings is interesting - the one of the right maybe a bit too dark. There's a little too much walkway.
