I had to giggle at your title. . . was there just a trace of fear of those mean voters who instantly dismiss and trash anything they see as over-processed????? Me too. . . so way to go clarifying that amazing point! Knowing that those feet are really that blue makes this spectacular photo even more amazing. This is absolutely stunning. . .razor sharp. Dramatic sky. Clearly in the wild. Fantastic job!!!
