Nice capture. Your eye is lead to the Casino with the curve of the rock and ocean. If the Casino is your main subject, it wouldn't hurt the image to crop some off the bottom and top to emphasize the Casino. The bright green in the foreground tends to take my eye from the boats and building. Maybe a bit of desaturation would tone it down.   Posted: 09/15/2023 02:08:20

Interesting travel photo. You have improved contrast in processing. I agree with Darlene to crop a bit more and desaturate the bushes in front.   Posted: 09/17/2023 16:09:58

The adjustments really did bring back the image, especially in the sea. Adding some more saturation would increase the contrast in the trees to bring those back more. I would also recommend cropping out some brush in the front, it is a bit distracting.   Posted: 09/19/2023 14:47:52

Nice shot. The image is sharp. The composition looks good. The foreground is a little strong. I would crop about 10% from the bottom. Did you try to remove the haze using Lightroom? I think that needs a little more adjustment. Some more saturation may look better.   Posted: 09/21/2023 08:53:31
