The Image: Been to this place before and ribboned here, so sorry everyone. It was just too tempting. A super hot day of 40 degrees and a balmy night and a blue sky. This was shot about 40 minutes after sundown.

The Edit: Apart from some levels and colour adjustments, USM, there's not a lot here. The vignetting is pretty natural. I used 1 pixel dodge tool to bring out the stars in this long exposure.

The Prediction: mid to high sixes is what I hope for, but FS's are difficult.

Post: I guess I overestimated this. In all reality, I think it was underrated, but, you never know with the dpc voters

Well I gave it a 7! I'm surprised it did not score higher. I have nothing constructive to add. I like the triangles in the composition, as well as, the glowing lights, both with in the boats and the sky. Well done.

I love the colors in this. I think a less-centered horizon would make it more powerful. I would love to see more of that gorgeous sky.
