    Hi Kris, welcome to CiC.

    The scene itself is very attractive and restful, and the colours seem to add to the strength of it. I think there are some problems though with the processing. You have some very dark areas, and the colours seem to me to be over-saturated.

    Did you shoot this in RAW mode? If so, and you would like me to try editing it in CS5, I'll have a go for you. You can upload it to HERE and PM me the link so no-one else can take a copy. Up to you.

    Hello,
    Unfortunatly it wasnt shot in raw, but in CS5 i hdr toned the image.
    I will get around to uploading the picture to mediafire for you so you can have a play, but maybe i was thinking adding a few control points on the image and maybe brightning them up a tad?

    Thanks

    I really like this.

    I think the dark areas really make the buildings and boats stand out. It's a nice effect!

    Where is it?

    Hi Kris. Welcome to the group. I am a starter too. I love the shot as is. Yes the blacks are really dark but
    contrast well against the well defined clear lit up buildings. If that was my shot I would be happy. However, I
    am a beginner. I would love to see what Rob can do with it!!!!
