I had gone to a conference at the Gold Coast, and walked onto Broadbeach on the final morning. The sky had this lovely dramatic streaky appearance, and with a polarising filter, looked good.

The final score way exceeded my expectations, and is a personal best for me. Thanks all, for the kind comments.

Sandy P - that's very kind of you, but there is no way on earth I'd consider this photo of mine to approach the impact of your dragonfly. And yes, a PB is very gratifying. Pity about the "evening" challenge of mine, which is tanking!
08/08/2008 12:06:31 AM
Ohmygoodness! I am stunned that this one got beat out by a little dragonfly! This is BREATHTAKING! Ummmmmmm. .. .yeah, I think those photography books you've been reading in your off time have made a bit of a difference :) Congratulations on a personal best!

Lovely scene, very dramatic. The softness of the clouds and ocean contrast well with the sharp edges of the city. Also like the figure down the beach, adds a point of small detail interest. 10

Very nice. Don't have anything like that in Paducah! Lovely reflection, nice eye.

One little change in your processing would have made this an outstanding photo. That change would be to have changed the blending mode to multiply.

Wow! I love the lines in the sky.

I like the colors your have going in the sky; youv'e got ultramarine above the city- cobalt an dcerulean to the right upper side; and payne's gray as shadows and water. Theres a bit of a sharpening effect as well as a skew to the photo thats a bit unnatural; but this, overall, is spectacular.
