From a stroll in the harbour. We had a good dinner in the tower you can see in the distance.
When I shot this, I knew that this was the mood I was going for.

Contrast, shadow highlight, Pro Contrast, Sunshine filter, Bi-color filter. It looks good on this monitor....
The aim was to go for and old Golden Age Dutch oil painting feel.

Good for a Master challenge? Probably not, but it has been a long time since I shot something here that I liked as much as this.

really like the scene and the PP treatment, but composition IMO could be stronger (like the awkward half-tree on the left blocking that cool tower), and a bit grainy, could benefit from Neat Image

nice painterly feel which is enhanced by the grain. I like it.

Fabulous, fabulous processing. It really gives this photo a vintage feel to it.

The yellowish tone is off-putting and something in the sky caused by editing I think, however this is a beautiful scene

Dang! Not him either, only 1 ribbon.

No offense to whomever's this is...the style of this photo just reminded me of the above 2 photographers (location, subject, processing style, etc...).

It's a lovely image. Good luck in the challenge. :-)

Did you add the image grain at the top? I like it. The color cast adds to the feel. Feels a bit busy on the left though. 6
