    There was a lot of strong light so I decided to settle for a silhouette instead of overexposing the sky. What do you guys think about this one?

    Really nice. If I had to be super, super nitpicky then maybe it needs some burning on the far right side, but it looks pretty good as is.

    It's a cropped picture taken with a wide angle lens.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The sun was on that right side along with a lot of light shimmering off the water, so I had a hard time trying to get a compromise exposure between the left and right side. I also thought about burning the right side but I forgot to ask if you guys actually liked the bright right side fading darker to the left side? That effect was one of the things that stood out for me. What do you guys think?

    Anyway, thanks mentos and Matt for the comments. :D

    Very nice. That's a beautiful shot. Is this a panorama, or a crop?

    Wow, I like the way you cropped it here. Very interesting image, and it is dreamy to look at. I'd agree it appears too bright on the right side, but it doesn't exactly ruin it for me. Nice work! :D

    Thanks terri and danalec99 for taking the time to comment. :D

    Only as a 4x6 just to see what it would look like on print. The crop makes it kind of small to see details at 4x6 though. ;)

    Another wonderfull picture Harpper :) It has the whole shamoly, compostion, mood, tone. The mountains and clouds are wonderfull. I really like how the reflection in the water highlights the silhoueted ship and gets dark shortly afterward

    edit: I think if you darkened the right side the picture it would loose a great deal of charm.

    I agree the light half of the shot offsets the darkness of the ship nicely, if you were to darken it you might lose the detail.

    I love the mountains by the way, the way they seem almost the same coulour as the sky with just the outline apparent.
