Exquisite color, Donna. I cannot see the dredging boat, just the setting sun. The light is either blinding or my eyes are dull after being in photoshop all day and night.

But your capture is breath-taking.

Just OUT-BLOODY-STANDING!!!! the Dof is so exceptional I dont think I have seen better! A true masterpiece that puts ansel adams to shame! You have more gold than ft knox and the fed reserve combined! If you dont already I am POSITIVE you could get all your camera gear comped just by letting them sponsor. I know sony will do it for sure and so will Cokin filters.
It is a true privilege to view these before they end up in a private gallery
