    Very good use of the bridge as a feature to add interest. Amazing clarity of light.

    It was exceptionally clear the day we visited Dubrovnik. However, I also used a CPL which can minimize haze by reducing the refections of the particulates in the air. I couldn't get over the clarity and green color of the water. I have seen glacial streams that were a vivid green but, these were not clear.

    I am wondering what I could do about the bit of rock I cut off at the image left.

    I usually shoot several images of any one scene but, to tell you the truth, I was absolutely exhausted after climbing the City Walls at high noon in 95 degree F. (35 C.) heat...
    The climb up (and down) these stone steps was scary for a 73 year old guy.

    When I got to the top and looked down...

    I decided that I had better get down pretty quickly while I can still do it under my own power. My wife called me a "damned fool" and, although I would not say it to her face, I absolutely agreed with her.
    Once you get to the top of these walls, it is not like it is level walking.

    The walls go up and down following the terrain as you can see at the right side of this image.
    I ventured to the top of the Galata Tower in Istanbul but, they had an elevator that carries tourists up and I only had to climb three stories. I got some spectacular images from that tower which I will share later after post processing.

    On second thought I changed my mind about being your porter.
