Ok, I will give it a try when I get a chance.

PS Too tired of discussing politics... Not to mention that this is (or at least should be) one of the places that people can enjoy each other without politics. Lots of other threads for political debates.

I'm very aware that photo's are subject to extreme opinion re composure but each opinion should be examined with an open mind, such as you are doing, not right or wrong just another perspective....

Yes Politics gets old because there is usually No Where to Go With It...like Religion, you Believe or you don't...

I'm old and have been down all those roads and mostly to no avail....

Another important thing that is often missed is color calibration. Trying to achieve perfect calibration between your eyes, camera, the monitor, and the printer is an exercise in inanity. It was even worse in the film days, but even today and with manufacturer supplied ICC profiles, it is still hard to achieve perfect (or even great) color calibration.

On my monitory (which is actually not a monitor but a 4k TV with 4:4:4 chroma) the boats are not too dark. But I've played with my screen's gamma and color settings to get what I think is right. On my cell phone (which was used to take the photo) the image is different.

This is a bit more appealing to me, cropped the sky and lightened the boats

I took an informal poll of the pictures. Most agreed that cropping out the sky was a good idea. However, brightening the image washed out some of the details and did not made the lighthouse look less pleasing.

Yes, and I suspect that the monitor settings have something to do with it too...btw, I meant to say "as pleasing" rather than "less pleasing"

The top prize for Photo of the Year went to an image taken in Liberia by British photographer and Red Cross volunteer, Jonathan Banks. The shot was captured back in 2008 on the outskirts of Monrovia during a multi-day festival patrolled by West African peacekeepers.

“This was a child who had grown up in war, and had good reason to be scared of soldiers and their guns,” says Banks. “He wanted to get his ball back, but his eyes were fixed on the soldier. This all happened in the blink of an eye and resulted in this picture, which seems to represent the precariousness of peace, as seen through the eyes of a young child with little understanding of the greater dynamics at play.”

Fun With Symmetry

I got some interesting photos and hopefully made them more interesting through mirroring and cropping.
