What a wonderful location. The shot also illustrates how far digital photography has come in the last twenty years.   Posted: 11/02/2021 09:24:08

Beautiful view. Wow - 1999. I like the consistency of the soft colors and how the arch holds the viewer's eye in the frame. The group of people with the canoe create an interesting center of interest. You might consider cloning out the vehicle in the background as it is a bit distracting. Fun image.   Posted: 11/03/2021 21:48:19

Thanks for you comments. I left the car in, as it shows how from down the river is ,from the road. I agree it could have been eliminated.   Posted: 11/05/2021 10:25:49

To me the image is too bright and lacks contrast. This is an easy fix using levels. Put the black dropper on something black.
I would remove the car and the people and object lower left. There also is something lower left that may be artifact.   Posted: 11/10/2021 10:01:22

When I played with the image, I felt that overall, the image was too bright and that it was improved by reducing the brightness of the bright parts. Independent of the brightness, I'd also like this more if the local contrast were reduced.   Posted: 11/11/2021 10:00:52
