Not really my best but I have a soft spot for it. Taken while speeding along on the back of my husband's motorcycle somewhere in Tennessee (and he doesn't drive slow.)Haven't been in a challenge for a long time. Partially DP Challenges fault in a good way. I've done a magazine cover Won a photo contest 2nd in another for a nature photo and 2 book covers. Now trying to get a photo ready for a gallery. Would not have happened without DP Challenge.
Raw conversion
Heavy crop (bushes and railing), some burn and dodge, cloned out bushes at the front and side of image, Levels, noise ninja, resixe and sharpen. Know it won't do well but wanted to get something in.

it is all just very green, bringing out the boat may have popped and broken up all the green. Nice sharpness though and crisp

indeed it is a 'quiet time' the greens are so rich and lush and the boat with the two fishing gives such a feeling of summer - i just wish the boat was a bit more pronounced in the scene

A little too green; sky is kind of dull, flat; boat is too far away which is unfortuante because the subjects look perfectly posed and there are some gorgeous reflections.
