    The USS LST-325 was docked at the river front today in downtown Paducah, Ky on the Ohio River.
    It is a 2366-ton LST-1 class tank landing ship that they were giving tours on.
    Canon 5DII & EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS
    Processed using Photomatix, CS4, & NIK Viveza

    WOW... I love the ropes! it gives the photo such an awesome look to it.
    I also really like the color of the sky, boat, and water, it all kind of flows together

    I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting the original unedited photo? I'm very new to this and would love to see a before and after. Thanks!

    First off, great pictures! Second, is it a real HDR (did you take 3 differently exposed pictures), or did you take one, PP using different exposures, then combine in Photomatix?

    I think it looks great, but the only thing I would change is how centered the boat is. Because ofthe depth of the foreground, it has more visual weight on the bottom half of the frame, but in reality, the boat is dead center in the frame. If it were more to the top or bottom, and left or right, I think it would be much stronger. You could maybe just crop some sky out. I'm also not a fan of the half of a saw horse on the right edge, which I'm sure you couldn't move. I love the leading lines with the ropes though.

    Thanks....I had to sneak in between the ropes and take the shot pretty quick before they saw me due to the caution tape all around that area to keep people out....:shock:
    Here are the three original shots I merged in Photomatix to make the HDR.
    Shot at -2, 0, +2 exposures.

    That's a beautiful shot. The balance of colors throughout the frame, the lines from the ropes, and the curves in the clouds give it excellent composition.
