A gorgeous scene, the boat has such character!

I felt it looked a little 'flat' though. I've taken it into Photoshop Elements 9 and made a few tweaks here and there, i.e. I went into 'Enhance > Adjust Lighting > Levels' and adjusted the blue. In 'Quick' I adjusted the Shadows/Midtones/High Lights. I nudged the saturation slightly and used the noise filters to remove a little noise which was in the sky.

A quick re-size and sharpen and here it is - I hope you approve! Thank you for giving me the opportunity, it's quite fun working on someone elses work - even if all the adjustments were tiny! Smile

(ooh! I forgot, I did crop a little off left, right and top)

I'm really pleased you like it - all you have to do is right click on it and 'Save picture as...'. Smile

A well chosen subject, I like the mood and the dog we nearly miss at the back of the large boat. IB

It looks like a filter has been added to the sky area?

Process for re sizing, sharpening and uploading:

Resize image: Image>Image size> set pixels per inch to 72; then set the longest side to what the site allows; then during the save as process, you will adjust the quality slider to get the right file size, then save.

Next: Open the new image. Check for sharpness at 100%. It will very likely need to be sharpened. You can use whatever method you prefer; here is a reliable method you can use:

Filter>sharpen>unsharp mask; set Radius = 0.8; set threshold = 3; now slide the Amount slider all the way to the right, which oversharpens the shot; then slide it slowly back to the left until it doesnt look soft, and doesnt look too sharp.

You can view your image and turn Preview on and off to see how youre doing. When your happy, press OK, then SAVE. Now upload.



Regards



Willie

Really like this. Both your coloration and Karen's. But I prefer the horizon straight! I assumed the lack of sharpness was intentional, but then I take pics with pinholes etc. I also don't mind the central composition - everything clusters round the central boat, drawing attention, which works for me, and the two little boats look endearingly duckling like. I did rather assume some processing had been added.....
