    Nice shot Tomcat! Nothing wrong with the D80. I still use mine regularly.

    It worked. The blue lighting really makes this shot different. A calm night helps when the shutter is open that long... Handheld?

Size:  462.8 KBAnother photo from Banff, Canada -- you can see the town in the middle left, along both sides of the river. The UV haze was difficult to eliminate, even with a polarizer (I know, I should have used both filters together).

    Beaut photo, lovely scene and nicely taken Les. For what it's worth it feels a touch sharp for my tastes.

    That's the trouble with using an ageing 19" desktop monitor with a resolution of only 1280x1024. The photo looks perfectly fine on there, but when I view it on my laptop using a resolution of 1680x1050 I see what you mean -- it does look over-sharpened.

    So I ran it through Photoshop this time. I've resized it and fiddled with levels, contrast, etc., but haven't added any sharpening. The colours are different but to my eye the overall result looks better. What do you think?

    I agree the second looks a bit more natural. I might have considered a graduated mask to sharpen just the distant mountains a bit to combat the haze.

    Hope you don't mind me putting my oar in this, but I prefer the first one.
    I have a golf Game 'Links' that has that golf course in it. Tough course to play even on a 'puter.
