Thank you all for your kind words and clicks. So many of you have been complimentary of the light in this shot, it was taken late afternoon, a couple of weeks ago, with the sun quite low in the sky behind and right of camera. To keep the detail in the sky, I have processed this shot twice from RAW, once as shot and secondly at -2 stops, I then used a graduated blend of these two images from half way down the sky area to the apex of the boathouse roof.
Wasnt sure if it should be in the Digitally Manipulated category but all I have actually done is try to reproduce the effect of using a ND Grad filter, hope you dont feel that this is cheating in some way, I feel that its just another way of achieving an effect that has been used for a very long time.

Adrian.

P.S. also applied usual Crop, Levels, Resize, USM.

Nice shot. I don't think it really matters what category it goes into, but landscape /travel is probably more appropriate if you look at the kind of shots which normally appear in digitally manipulated (which tend to be images that either look intentionally "unreal" or have had something added). Either way the light is great!

A lovely photo of a beautiful place, personally it doesnt matter to me whether you use a grad filter on-camera or later on the PC, photography is an art and it's the end result that matters and this is a very good photograph.
Great work.
