Morning at estuary, it is 7am. The boats are home now after struggling at night. The sun under the clouds, and actually is quiet. the fish auction had finish.

I am thinking to straight the horizon, but never find the right angles. Comment and critique welcome

I wouldn't straighten this.
The true horizon, way off in the background is adequately level and the secondary one, the top of the river bank only falls away very slightly, in proportion to the waterline due to perspective.
Rotating it will leave the trees and flagpoles etc. leaning over.

I feel that you have successfully captured an atmosphere of peace, Muhamad, and have done well with your composition and exposure.
You have a nice angle on the estuary, and have included boats on both banks of the water, which gives an interesting scene.
There are some good reflections of the two boats in the foreground, the ripples on the water add interest, and your sky is quite attractive.
Having taken your image into my editing programme, I can see that you have excellent detail throughout.
Although it is early morning, I feel that the image could benefit from having the shadows lifted, bringing out the detail on the estuary banks and background boats.
In my modification, I did just that, then darkened the sky to try to show the sun's rays better. I increased saturation to give the colours a lift, and cloned out some debris in the water and on the foreground bank for a cleaner finish. There was some noise visible in the sky, so I simply went over it with the softening brush.
You say, "I am thinking to straight the horizon", but there is no need here, the angle of the far bank of the estuary looks fine as it is.
Pamela.

Good record, well exposed. Possibly a little too contasty with some loss of shadow detail, but not bad at all.

Thank you Herman, Brendan, Pam and Paul.

Yes you all right, this doesn't need to straighten. As i said before, the angle had made me confuse Smile . i like the mod that you had made Pam, the contrast between bright in the foreground and dark in background (sky), made the image more life. Smile

And Pam, I download Paint shop pro x5 ultimate to try it, because what you had done with my manggoes image really impress me. but... i am not as good as you. i like the suggested improve feature , even sometimes not always give that i want, effect photo, channel mixer, etc. But what i had done can not compare with had you done Grin i tried the layer.. but i am so confused. So right now i am thinking to stay with photoscape, it is very easy and very friendly to beginner.
