Hi all

Here is photo of my first digital cam.
It was a 4 meg Kodak 433.
Photo taken on the island called Brac in Croatia.
Taken back in 07. Just wondering if the photo can
pass as interesting from a spectators perspective.
I am not so much worried about sharpness or grain or such
but just from a subject pov.

Would have made a good HDR. The horizon isn't straight, which is distracting.

Maybe it is just me, but I think it leans to the left, yes.

Nice photo! But somehow I would have taken this photo from a different spot. The tree / bushes to the left are a bit distracting. Would have tried to get rid of that in the pic and taken in more of the boats in the pic

(If it would have been possible )

Regards, Istvan

Thankyou all for the feedback.
Sorry for late reply. This was an old photo that I
stumblep upon in the archives, /for me it is washed out,
but I liked the scene. In hindsight maybe the sun more
to the left of photo would have been ideal tthus eliminating
some of the branches.

The subject is great, and I don't think the branches are distracting at all. Here's my take on it - I just straightened it and ran the 'clarify' filter in PSP on it a couple of times. It took less than 30 seconds. I kind of like it - what do you think?

flasha - hope you don't mind, a quick run through DPHDR then edit in PSE. A little too much?
