Boardwalk along Lachine's Lachine Canal.

Shot using my 28-105 USM @ 28mm at F22. RAW format converted to 16bit TIFF using OES Viewer Utility. Did not adjust for anything. Used as shot.

In PS7: 10D sharpener action. Converted using velvia action (increases saturation using layers and blending). Crop to 8x10 ratio. Created 2nd layer and darkened to bring out the colour and detail in the sky. Then created a layer mask from the brighter under layer, and added a heavy (40) gaussian blur to the mask on the darker top layer. This is a blending technique described on the Luminous Landscape web site.

Finally, did some minor healing, resized to 640, slight USM, and save for web.

Good depth, nice color, did you use chrome setting for the greens?

Nice picture, not crazy about the title though. Still worth a 7.

Nice title ;o)

Blue toning of this shot seems exagerated. What gives this away is the blue reflection on the green bench.

Great shot with details all the way back. Not sure if you tried it but if the POV was about a foot or so lower might give the benches and railing more impact. Also I might have tried a tighter crop (some off the left and right) to help with the vertical feel that you are trying to achieve with the vanishing point. Slightly oversharpened but won't deduct. 7

Nice shot for the challenge. The title is a bit over done.

Great title! A very nice composition that surely demonstrates deep DoF. Colors ar a bit saturated - but that actually works welll here. The bight gray (dock?) on the right of the railing is just a bit distracting.

Man, I have to vote on this just to get it off the thumbnails page. And you forgot the bin in your (hugely annoying) title. decent shot - highly contrasty and typical of v harsh midday sun, though, and perhaps not simple and graphic enough to really make the most of that light. 5
