Here's a shot I posted in the POTD thread that I wasn't sure about... It's essentially a cruise ship sailing into the sunset. (click for larger view) Here's a shot a few minutes later so you can see the path the vessel was on... here it's passing between me and the sun. This was originally shot vertical with the bottom half cropped out (it added nothing interesting). Note that it never really emerges much above the horizon while there is interesting light... The ship then disappeared to the right as the sun continued to set. Here are a few different treatments of the original photo... This one is simply a crop that excludes the sun... This one uses a tighter vertical orientation and I've lightened the shadows as much as possible without introducing too much noise. As I said in my POTD post, what might you have done differently with the original (top) photo. Would you have taken it at all? Would you have composed it differently (perhaps like one of the last two treatments)? Or would you have done something different? I look forward to your thoughts.
