Thank you all, for the wonderful comments and the critique!
I never keep a record of PP steps, neither I follow a specific method.
As far as I remember PP was:
selective color
color balance
gaussian blur
screen and multiply in a 2nd layer
levels
curves
gaussian blur
unsharp mask
rotate (a little)
crop
add border
resize
save for web

Stunning. Can't wait to read how you processed this. An eight for you.

The painting-like quality is quite appealing, but you should have fished out that floating plastic bag and removed that bit of red waste near the shrubs before the shot. In this type of a romantic picture you do not want to be reminded of the harsh reality...
Looks like a great place, btw.

Absolutely perfect! ...except for that orange (piece of trash?) in the water. Oh yeck...it adds color. I think your photo is a contender for a ribbon. 10

Does not look natural, oversharpend?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/29/2008 11:50:23 PM
Something going on with crop & black borders?

Could be a 'timeless' photo if in black & white

Some obvious halos on vertical dock posts.

Like the scene & composition otherwise

I like the colors and the dreamy glow, you made a nice picture out of an ordinary scene, good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Unfortunately I can't vote in this. BUT, this is an exceptional photo. I love the tones and overall processing. I think the border really adds to the feeling. Great job!

Nice boat and peer...both have seen their day but still get the job done...very nice scene.

Wonderful composition. Excellent PP!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

enchanted feel to this, the way you PP'd is so very nice. Love the blue of hte boat and the Greek, adds to the mythic quality
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2008 11:48:58 PM
Nice....you got my highest vote/8. Love the pp which creates a photo that could pass for canvass art. I've got to learn the trick.

I don't like the over processing that generally happens around this site, but you have managed to find the perfect spot, imo.

I always tell people, "if you're going to over-process, go all the way to create something unexpected, otherwise you're just playing." You created something unexpected.

Beautiful image! I hate the letterbox format, but I'll just grumble at you and not take points off.

good composition and PP
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 10:09:43 PM
Eerie feel, I like it. Post processing is overdone and there are several halos present.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 09:21:06 PM
The processing techniques used are very effective. It almost looks like a painting! The jury's still out on the black border. *9*

Great find, love the subdued look of this.

05/26/2008 01:21:45 PM
I like "ΔΕΣΠΟΙΝΑ" a lot. I am not sure about PP. It shouts "overdone" But the whole point of view gives me a nice feeling. (8)

wow...10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 02:26:15 AM
looks like HDR and i think that the ghostly effect takes away the sharpness too much making the picture lack a central point of interest IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 01:30:02 AM
Lovely tones and processing. The softness works really well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
