Okay, I didn't fare so well with my Parrot shot. Need to work on that one.

How about this one? I will keep my mouth shut and learn...



Okay, after reading the threads below that the city-waterline-buildings should be level I made the change below. What do you think now?

This is more like it, I like the way your eye can 'bounce' between the city and the car, well composed shot. The water seems a little 'sharp' not sure if thats due to pp or not. Anyway, nice shot.

What is EXIF? Gee, I'm such a dummy :?

I may have resized it wrong too. I can send the original pix via email?
It is resampled at 20% to fit on this screen and saved @ 10

i like this one much better.. it appears as if the car really is "looking" at seatle.. the yellow car works well with the blues of the water and the distant city and i think you have placed the car well in the scene.. your horizon is a bit crooked though, easily fixed in photoshop though, just go to rotate>arbitrary and play with the degrees until it looks good.. i am guessing about .75-1 degree clockwise should do it..

Okay, I'm guessing it should be adjusted to the Seattle waterline horizon?

Currently is is level with the rear tires... Also the water was quite "choppy' that day.
