I am sorry I didn't comment on this during voting. It was one of my favorite images. I love the murky water - how it makes the other colors sing. Beautiful photo.

I love the brown murky water and the dark cloudy sky. It looks great with the saturated colors. The green boat, the blue tarp and the flags all pop!


Thank you Ed. Pls feel free to correct my bad grammar. Sometimes I refrain from commenting just because of this.

Thanks. mariuca. the shot like this is only about timing. I did prepare write up and simple tutorials but I haven't post here yet.

I love the kind of muted details from the exposure. Colors are wonderful.

This image is so quiet. It reminds me of why I like the night so much, walking around discovering places such as this one. Beautiful image.

I like the richness of color with minimal light. The soft glow feel is really nice.

I like the way you processed this image, very nice. :)
It could use a little "less" stuff. Maybe shift to the right and have only one boat; have the dock start further left in the picture. Take down a few flags, LOL (get arrested). 8
