I think the composition could have ben better but I really liked what was going on with the boats and water. I find myself pulling away from HDRI because it's so easy to over do it and have it look like a comic book. I would rather have an image that pops with reality. Lately I've been trying to improve my technique both with the camera and post software. My camera is just an entry DSLR with a kit lens. I don't have any money for a Canon 5D Mark III at this time (thats my dream DSLR) so I'm trying to get the most out of what I have. Canons DPP makes me want to pull my hair out and Lightroom isn't much better. I've been having problems with artifacts galore when sharpening, so I opted for ACR to handle my RAW files. So far it seems my workflow is about the same, but with better results. Hope you enjoy this image, I had tons of fun last night making them. Cheers!
