Remake of shambles! "Midwinter, Wellington NZ",

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/883/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_692706.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/883/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_692706.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

My shot has in common with the Brown Ribboner that it's an urban landscape/seascape, combination with a lowering winter sky.


From RAW to CS3, Topaz Adjust "clarity" filter on overlay layer, selective erasing foreground same, shadow/highlight, vignetting and gradients applied edges and corners, very light, a smidge of dust cloning, a little skew tool for horizon, Adamus sharpening.

Beautiful -- you have next year's Currier & Ives xmas card. Love the processing. Congratulations on the top 10 placement. Don't understand why the average didn't come out higher, when you had no low scores at all.

I don’t know why, but the fence almost seems a non issue, I know it’s there, but ?? When I opened the image my eyes where grabbed by the three separate trees, then lead across the long grass, to where the water melted on the shoreline, and around the beautiful cove. I must admit I enjoyed the journey.

Damn good picture, Bear. That was a challenge with different and mutually exclusive criteria flying around all over the place. That said, you've adopted pretty much the most obvious and/or reasonable approach. Maybe things change (not a whole lot of doubt about that, really) :)
Remember when there weren't very many poetry boards?

Weird: no 1's, no 2's, no 3's, and only seven 4's — and 6.4 is the best it can get? I think I am starting to redefine the term "good enough" LOL...

And what's with a top-10 image with NO post-challenge comments after more than 48 hrs?
