    (Techie details for those who are interested: K1000, 50mm f1.7, Agfa Vista 200, 1 sec exposure...I think. I bracketed, so this might be the 1/2-second one. Either way, I had to bring up the shadows and midtones a smidge to brighten it up a bit.)

    Loving the color. I'm sure it's the curve where the water goes from purple to dark but it doesn't look level.

    I checked it again and made a tiny adjustment. Does it seem more even now? It's tricky because it's dark, but also because of the curve and a gentle slope on the right side.

    I like this shot, I'd also like to see the darker original, I like a darker image with a good amount of contrast personally.

    I think it was level, judging by the houses. It just looked askew because of the curve in the background. I really like this shot. Is it local to you or from a trip?

    Here's the original, straight from the scanner. I just resized it to upload it easier. Whaddya think?

    Maine. Ogunquit to be specific. We were walking off dinner with a nice sundown cliff walk.

    I like it, especially the foreground and sky is better than the touched up one, but I do like what you did with the shoreline in the altered pic.
    I still think this is better for my eyes.

    Marinas here look different.


    A cliff walk? Make sure it's a short walk or a long cliff. :)

    Awesome. The boats appear to be moving backwards, like I am coming in with a battleship. Excellent composition! You are so talented. I have no problem with the exposure, alignment, or anything. This is what every pen & ink masterpiece wants to be.

    Why would you hijack a thread with an excellent piece of art with your snap shot?

    I am. You are not. Your photo has nothing to do with the original artists post. You posted a marina... ok. all marinas are configured differently, you had no reason to post your pic, it added nothing and actually is distracting to it now as I am wasting my time posting this.

    Yes, the original looks like it's listing to port a bit.
