Iím hoping people wonít consider this DNMC as Iím not technically 100 meters from my house but within 100 meters of the hotel Iím staying at for two weeks which I currently term as home.

I was arriving late in the day back to the hotel room when I saw the rainbow. Thereís an old wharf that would have looked great as part of the shot but it was about another 200 meters along the bay. I wanted something else than just the rainbow and was lucky enough that the jogger came by. I was focused on getting the timing right that I had not noticed the amount of horizon tilt I had. Adjusting the tilt and associated crop meant that the jogger was lower than I had wanted. Oh well.

Cloned out some sensor dust (got to get that thing cleaned again), a little topaz adjusting plus deniose, fiddled a little with levels and curves then some sharpening. I like the way the rainbow pops but thereís probably not enough here to get a lot of interest. Hoping for a mid 5ís finish.

Personally, I would've cropped out the runner, and left the boats with the rainbow. The colors in it are very intense!
