Challenge: Calendar II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5- 5.6G ED DX
Location: Conference House Park, Staten Island, NYC
Date: Feb 21, 2009
Aperture: 11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/25
Galleries: Sky, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Feb 21, 2009

POST PROCESSING: Opened in RAW; cropped a bit of sky and land, auto levels, boosted blues, reds and yellows in sky only and darkened them a bit. I then dodged the water and the bottom half of the pavillion to bring out the person more. I finally added the border and saved @145KB after the resize.

*I'm hoping people notice the person standing in the pavillion, not sure it adds more drama to this though.

*About the scene- This Pavillion is part of the park that surrounds the Conference House, where British Loyalists set us a meeting to officially hand over the American colonies to American born politicans including Benjamin Franklin.

Inititally this was the site of many battles that took place during the Revolutionary war between English and Colonial forces. The Conference House itself was just behind me and can be seen in my Manors and Mansions collection in my portfolio

I like this but it is a bit dark, your sunburst is really neat, almost could have cropped the trees to the left out...
