    Not sure of exactly what it is that draws me in, but I really like this pic

    Just noticed something ...

    If you wanted to be a "perfectionist", you might like to clone out the little white spots visable in several places in the brick area (I counted at least 9 of them).

    This shot is beautiful! The purple mixed with the green grass really help to draw me into the photo

    Nice pic, very nice indeed.

    If you're zapping what might be stuck pixels in PP, is it worth dealing with the bit of litter on the grass bottom right too? Either a clone out or just 'burn' it down so it's less bright in the lit part.

    Is that you in the picture, or did you get someone else to stand still for 8 seconds?

    No pity here. Just jealousy. I really like it.

    Re: Night at the port

    nice I love the colours, the green and gold in particular compliment each other well and nice balance. The spots look like hot pixels to me but could be wrong. On that note I notice acr does a good job of automatically killing them (obviously only good for raw though) but when I developed raws in other apps I found blackframe NR useful. It means 1 extra shot with lens cap on but it's no big deal, I don't do often but when taking pics with hotpixels and a none acr workflow in mind I tend to take the blackframe last.

    Saying that in most situations the major ones clone/spot heal out no prob and in most scenes (unless it's dark and smooth gradient etc) the partial ones (that increase at greater rate than light coming in but not blown) tend to be barely noticable at most res/print size. Hope this helps.

    Beautiful shot, I love the range and contrast. Good job!
