Challenge: Motivational Poster (Advanced Editing I*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot G3
Location: Panama City Bay, Florida
Date: Dec 28, 2003
Aperture: f/8.0
ISO: 50
Shutter: 3 sec
Galleries: Sky, Seascapes

Florida Sunsets are just the best.

Taken about 300 yards from my grandparents front door. The hardest bit of this photograph was fighting off all the little bloodsucking bugs.

Postshot editing includes dodging the sand, removing a sunken boat and a dock to the left, and modifing curves.

Beautiful shot; too beautful to put text in front of it. Perhaps next time a bottom border for the text!

Real nice. Could have dressed it up more to be a poster (just my feeling though).
I would not buy this as a poster. Though this does not really affect my vote that much.

Great sunset - the quote gets lost on the poster. Perhaps a different font, size or places outside the photo area. 7

Very striking photograph. I love the color; like the placement of the text, etc. This photo would benefit for this challenge with a nice border, and, since this challenge permits some spot editing, I think darkening the forground ( land portion )might improve the look.

Font is too small - I can barely see it..... Overall - good.

Careful, what is broken and dead and torn, is not really motivating.

Beautiful colors, nice composition, appropriate quote. The foreground seems a bit dark, especially on the left. The letters are slightly blurry.

I think the photo is awesome. The phrase and text are decent, but I guess thats a matter of taste, Great shot/ I'm inspired.

Absolutely beautiful picture. Your quote fits the picture perfectly. One of my favorites.

Great in all ways

IMHO, since this is a poster, the beauty of this shot could've been enhanced by a border. Nonetheless, this is truly amazing: colors, compositon, etc.

Beautiful shot, wonderful colors, well executed, a border would have really made this shot more convincing as a poster, but it is a wonderful shot great job!

I love the picture, and the quote, but would have loved to seen this done in a little more "poster type way"

Really nice shot, but my view on this is that the image and title shoudl work alone without supporting text. It is a very nice image though.

I would have preferred seeing the corporate look of a strong black border with text outside the image rather than having the text inside the image. However, your choice of site for the text is appropriate. Very nice shot. Among my favourites.

Gorgeous image and lovely inspirational quote!

This is so very gorgeous photo. The reflections in the shallow water are just superb. But the text is a bit messy and unclear. Simpler font might have helped. Without the text - one of the top images in this challenge.

Stunning photo. Text could be a little clearer is my only negative here. Great shot.
