taken from the base of a yacht mast while out at sea. what more can be said. i wanted to create that feeling of persepctive. wish i had my Sigma 10-20 at the time but this was with the 18mm end of my 18-250mm lens

Good idea Pete. It can't have been easy taking this shot with the boat moving up and down.
The exposure could do with a tweak. As you are pointing the camera into a lot of light it has fooled the metering and underexposed the equipment at the bottom of the mast. I have uploaded a mod for you where I have tweaked the levels to get more light into this area. I also used a soft brush (plus low opacity)to paint a bit of grey into the area where the sky is overexposed in the bottom left hand corner.
Hope this helps
I like this a lot, Pete, but I like most things nautical, lol. It's a great angle and the cloud formation does a lot to enhance its impact. I really get the feeling of being at sea when looking at it. I agree with Catherine about the dark area on the right. I don't find much to critique about it but, if I were taking this, I'd try to get the rigging to fall into the bottom left corner, with a little twist of the camera, but that's only a personal preference.
I've done a modification where I rotated the image to the left, cropped, cloned in some sky at the top, brightened, adjusted highlights/shadows and enhanced the colours in the ropes. It was just an exercise for myself, to see if it would work, but also to give you an idea of my suggestion above.
thanks for the comments ladies. i felt a bit seasick after taken the shot as I was lying down for about five minutes. One has to suffer for one's art!
Very helpful indeed.
