I took this a few weeks ago on an overnight jaunt to Miami.

Who needs sleep, when you have a camera.

Aaah. The "C" stands for Charles or Chris, right?

Very nice. Peaceful, soothing.

As the late, great Warren Zevon said, "I'll sleep when I'm dead."

Yeah Charles is my first name, and the name I publish everything under.

And I tend to agree with your quote more often than I'd like to. lol.

Oh, and thank you. It was a real peaceful morning. I hung out with bum's on the beach to get that shot, and the feeling of serenity watching it was amazing. I sat and watched carnival ships come in and out of dock for an hour or so against the blackness while I waited. That's pertty amazing there. Little floating cities.

Well done, Wes

It does capture that peaceful, easy feelin'!

I tweaked it a bit...but did not crop out your initials...please let me know what you think...

I was trying to "bring out the blue".

I like the deeper blue but the water in the original shot. Maybe a gradient filter between the two photos, with a "fade to transparent" to include the best of both worlds? :-)

I have some more shots that I have tweaked a little more. I've been working on crops, tagging, and sorting all day, so soon soon I'll be getting a small gallery of some of my favorites soon. I'll include my sepia, and adjusted versions. That there is just a resize of an original.

-------------

oh and digi, np. I tried something similar, and after much debate I decided I was proud of the original on that shot. That and when I try to bring out the blue like that I lose some of the ocean. Which to me, is half of the shot right there.

But, I'm always up for folks giving me pointers, or their opinions.

I tacked on one more that I got done today. This one is auto levels, contrast, and colors.
