Congrats on high fnish. Great "Z"! Horizon is slightly hazy to me - on my Konica 400KZ I get a haze that I can lose with autolevels. Distance haze seems to me to be more pronounces and problematic with smaller lenses, such as P&S - hard to lose in basic editing. For level horizon, in PS, click and hold the eye dropper tool and select the ruler tool - align a line along the horizon and select edit/rotate/arbitrary - the correct rotation will appear in the box for you automatically!

geez I really like this but- horizon is really tilted and something is in the lower left corner that should be cropped

This is an awesome view. I think it would have been a little better if there wasn't people on the end but other wise nice job!

Would be nice to loose the leftmost white wave.

Very nice shot One of my favorites simple and on target. However nothing inspiring about much of the sky or far ocean. IMHO a tighter crop would have proved a 9. All in all very nice work

Like the perspective, very interesting. Light's a little flat, but it's still pretty neat. Love the title!!

Wow- what a perfect accidental z- Wish it could have been a tad sharper, but it's outstanding.

Good capture and find for "Z"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 08:48:42 PM
That's a super "Z" allright. Wish your horizon was level.

zed
04/06/2005 05:06:45 PM
I absolutely love this picture! I love it more the longer I look at it. It's a perfect Z, and the scene is just gorgeous!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice picture and very well captured "Z". I only feel your photo lacks a little rotation (in order to straighten the horizon line) and a little more vibrant colors - the blue seems a little flat and dull (at least on my monitor). Well done, though.

Great "eye" wel spotted. Justa little out of focus and lacking in vibrancy to contend. Also learn how to correctsquint horizons (I suspect most of the comments will say that) there is a tutorial on the site under "Learn".

This is a nice image. I love how you were able to capture this letter out in nature. I love how the water looks in this image as well. Nice work.

Well seen, but the horizon is tilting too much IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 04:33:13 AM
A good 'Z' spot...only the image looks kinda strange to look at because of the sloping horizon. Staighten it up and it'd be great!

I was wondering if there would be many larger-scale shots in this challenge, as I think that macro/close-ups are easier to execute here. Great capture.

i like the z and the overall colors and feel of the photo, but that leaning horizon line makes it seem lopsided to me.
