Came to check out what you've been up to lately and discovered you've won a posthumous blue, congrats!! A wonderful accomplishment for a very deserving photograph.

Thanks guys :)
This photo was a nightmare to process, mainly because there were too many odd and conflicting array of colours in the buildings in the foreground and the amount of noise in the sky was difficult to bring out a rich colour that i like to achieve in my photos,
eg 530916.jpg
so i ended up graying it. It was only after i submitted it that i got my hands on noise ninja and i should have done more with it.

A highly underrated image. This has an amazing 'real' feel to it. Perhaps if you process it a little more to make the colours more interesting you might draw a few more viewers, but personally I think it is very deserving of the posthumous ribbon. Well done.

The beauty of this shot - to me, I cannot put it into words. What you've accomplished here is admirable. And don't ever think of removing that airplane. :)

You shove representation aside and find something more real. This is pure image, or an amazing facsimile.

I think I would have cloned out the plane as an imperfection.

The airplane is a nice bonus.
