    I just watched Apocalypse Now so all I see is a scene from the movie. Photoshop the water to flames and paste a machine gun onto the chopper...

    Seriously though that's a cool picture. You must have been pretty close if that's 135mm river or not. I only wish I could see some fire, in a curiosity kind of way mostly.

    ^ Haha, see isn't that more dramatic?

    I was kinda joking in the first post but that looks pretty good to me. It's got some weird color noise goin on, especially in the sky/smoke on the left.
    I can tell it's a different picture but how much did you process this?

    Now there is some drama. No wonder the photojournalists always seem to see it differently... :mrgreen:
