One of those perfect evenings where the air is cool but not cold and you just feel relaxed when you sit by the water for awhile. Thanks to the anonymous couple for being where I needed someone to be!

PP - converted twice from RAW (once +1 exposure and once -1). Used PI's HDR function to combine the light and dark conversions from RAW. Cropped. Increased saturation and contrast, cloned out sign and white discolorations on bridge, dodged underside of bridge and evened purple color, burnt people (sorry, people) and lightly burnt sidewalk and wall, dodged some water and bits of trees, shifted cyan in trees to green, shifted remaining cyan to blue, decreased saturation in cyan/blue range, smudged banding in sky, resized, sharpened.

Nice capture - Interesting colours and good sharpness. Almost would have liked to have seen a figure in the lower right hand corner for some more interest.

nice scene, well composed. a tad too much coloring used and slightly oversharpened (notice the pixelation in the waves bottom right and the leaves at left

This is pretty but the colors seem a touch forced. I like the silhouettes being to one side.

I imagine the full size image would look fantastic. I think that you have lost some of the brilliance of this in the resizing, which does not deserve lowering your score. 9 for me.

This appears overprocessed to me. A little too "funky"
