"Another weekly challenge. If, anyone else would like to post next week please give it a go, upload a High resolution jpeg. Just indicate your intentions by Thursday or early Friday. Remember there are no rules you can do what you wish in your interpretation, please can you give information of the steps taken and software used to add interest. It is not meant as a competition just a bit of fun." (Gerald Cafferty) Playa Brava, Punta Colorada, Uruguay. I'm very interested to see how your software deals with the luminance gradient in the sky and jpeg re-compression. I usually end up with steps (bands) rather than a smooth gradient in these types of image when I take them down to 1000px on the largest side.
