Lovely image! I like the slightly covered moon with the bird approaching. The colours are wonderful, subtle just as I like. ChrisGrin

A fantastic image, one which is not only haunting with the inclusion of the bird, but very beautiful and calming.

With reference to getting sharp images, it is a bit of a funny one. Most monitors or screen work at 72dpi, however I always bump up my resolution to 300 dpi whilst in the process of resizing my image. If you Save it for the Web your computer will normally save it at 72 dpi, this inturn will reduce your file size. A lot of my images are imported at 5M, the maximum allowance.

I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Excellent image, Darryl great processing.
The curious thing is my images tend to look oversharpened on here when compared to my 23" monitor. Sad

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Darryl.

The use of pov is excellent, the subject a fascinating one.
Hope you have a terrific Christmas!

This one looks fine. You can over-sharpen images. Also, de-noise programs can effect the apparent sharpness.

Have a great Christmas, Darryl,

All the best,

The pontoons look like sentinels, Darryl, still standing tall and proud, as if still keeping watch. It's probably the metal pipe (or something) that humanizes them for me. I like the perspective and your sensitive manipulation.
