Forgot to put any info here when I submitted.
My usual. Open RAW image in Nikon Capture Editor. Curves and a little Color Booster. A little bit of sharpening, Color Mode, Tone Comp and Saturation. Then into Photoshop, Levels and a little more Curves, Color Balance, Bright/Contrast and Selective Color Layer. USM, resize and save for web.
I am not very good with Photoshop, but learning something every week and starting to be a bit clear over what I'm actually doing when I am working in PS :)
Very pleased it did so good and happy that I got so many good comments both during voting and after.
That was September :) October now and a yellow ribbon and even more wonderful comments. Thank you all, the comments mean a lot to me, every single one.

Thank you gals, you are real pals (& Art R :) )
Can't seem to get that smile off of my face, a plastic surgeon maybe if this continues.

Wonderful, Guðrún!!!! I haven't had a chance to look at the entries from this challenge yet - what a great sight it was for me to look here and see you just about at a ribbon. You'll definitely beat me there. This is such a perfect entry, lovely colors and composition. Congratulations on a personal best to top it all off. Yay for G!

A top picture. Well processed and beautiful colors. The downside is that the sun distracts me from the main subject, the mast.
