Wow, minimalistic for sure! So peaceful looking. I actually like the colors in the original better than the b&w, although the b&w gives a wonderful range of gradients. Thanks for giving us some 'summer fun'!   Posted: 02/15/2021 03:40:43

Nice work. I like the angle of the piers heading to the horizon. I agree with Wanda about the colors in the original. To me, that matches the title better. The blue is soooo cold looking. The black and white is good as well but somehow I felt warmer than the title led me to believe. :) I wished I lived in a place where we could see the stars. Guess I need to drive out farther.   Posted: 02/15/2021 17:27:04

Marti, Thank you for your comments. I too like the color one. This was taken about 11:30pm in North west Minnesota, at our cabin. I don't get to see the stars that well at my home.   Posted: 02/18/2021 19:49:03

I like the minimalist feel of your picture and prefer it to the color version. I love LR mainly for the fact that you can enhance most of your pictures just in LR and not go to PS.   Posted: 02/18/2021 14:13:11
