    This isn't really a challenge (well for me it would be :wink: ), but I was hoping that y'all might be able to clean this up a bit for me. I am guessing that I got water on the lens from being out on the ocean all day.

    I kind of like it this way, but would love to see it cleaned up. If you want a larger pic, let me know and I can get you one.

    Have at it (do I need to include the OTE thingy here?)

    Thanks gang, I think you did a great job, but I'm still not really happy. Oh well, c'est la vie I suppose.

    Thanks again for trying, and I'm sure I'll post more!

    How about this effort? It's a little better than it was before.

    Rob,


    I think you did a pretty good job getting rid of the watermarks on the lens, but the more I look at the pic, the less I like it.

    I really like the IDEA of the pic, but it just doesn't feel right to me...does that make sense?

    Yep, I get it all the time, you take a picture and can't figure out really what your own point was!

    It might benefit from a bit more content. It's kind of a wonky sunset otherwise :mrgreen:

    is wonky good or bad?


    I was out shooting last night, and when I dumped the pics onto my computer, I discovered that since I got the camera in June, I have now taken over 3,000 pics. I look at many of them and think WTF? Why did I take that.

    Sadly, out of the 3,00+, all the good ones are on my photoblog (minus the ones from the past few days, which I hope to get up by the end of the weekend.

    Christie,

    wow. I think you win. That looks really good. How did you get rid of the water spots?

    I used a combination of airbrush and healing tool. I'm sure you noticed a did a bit of cropping too... just a bit of the top and one side.

    Happy you like it.
