Default Lakeside dock

This is a five minute walk from home. Not sure which photo's better, took a few using the exposure comp.

5 minute walk from home *walks off muttering and blaspheming*

#2 for me Ned - #1 has blown highlights. But then I like my shots dark & dangerous

Great view

John! Many thanks, I still have a lot to learn about layer mask and all. I really need to dig into learning PSE8. So, many kind thanks, indeed, for your help. All the best.

I know... just wish I could learn all this stuff quickly... I need to get a book on PSE8... I would take a course, but everything is in Finnish... and my Finnish is worse than my PSE8 skills.

Yes, JP's version is what I was thinking when I first saw them.
However, (here I go again) I don't think that lens does this scene true justice.
I'd love to see the same shot with a 28mm maybe even wider?
Or, you could just ignore me.

Not a problem... sounds like a good idea! Thanks
