Re: The Ocean of Night

Nice shot. you could make it more interesting by decreasing the exposure in LR or Photoshop to make it look less like twilight and more like night. Isolate the lifeguard shack and highway with the car and headlights with Quick selection tool and reset exposure. A shot like this is fun to play with. Anyway, you get the idea. Here is a rough and dirty attempt that took me all of 2 minutes in CS5. After decreasing exposure, I played with offset and gamma in the same exposure tool.

Nice shot. I think it would also work without including the road.

Why does everyone always feel the need to suggest a "better" way to take and/or process an image?!?! This is a STUNNING image. One I would print and frame for my wall. Love it just the way it is!

I wasn't suggesting a better way. In photography as in any of the arts, there is no better way. Of course the shot is fine as is. I was just suggesting a way among many that one can play around with an image to give a different approach or feeling. Sorry! No criticism intended.
