Grab shot at the Marin Civic Center pond while shooting for the architecture challenge. Extreme crop and lots of topaz to compensate for flat afternoon light, probably a bit too much :)

Well let's see 2 to 1 against the processing and based on the scores the voters seem to agree with the majority. Not much of a surprise, but I still kind of like the look, even if it is a bit, er, over the top. Once the challenge ends I will post the unedited original here; may even put it up in a side challenge to see what you can do with it!

Nice capture, but the processing comes off as oversharpened to me. You may have been trying to give an artistic treatment to it, though.

I would love to see what this looked like straight out of the camera. It's a little too processed, for my taste, but it is still a good capture.
