This was taken on my way back to my docks this past fall... what could I do to make this better?

I did a little PP in CS3 but I am a newbie with this...LOL!!!

It looks "dirty" to me.

I dont know what you mean by dirty it looks pretty good to me. I dont know if you want silhouette of the trees or more detail so I gave you some detail.

LOL... Idon't know what I mean either...

I think I meant it looked "grainy"...
The original was pure silloette for the trees so I played a bit and lightened it up... I like what you did though... dodge and burn?

Thanks

i think it's grainy because you've saved the pic in GIF format

i think the pic has really beautiful colours, the only improvement i could think of is probably to just enhance the contrast slightly

On my monitor, the "denoised" image lost the light from the windows on the left, which makes the reflections of that light in the water truly weird. FWIW

You have nicely gotten rid of all signs of civilization if that was your intention. The water isnt as crisp. Not clear exactly what you want from this pic. Perhaps a bit of cropping from the right side might help since the trees are only a silhouette.
