Photographer's Note

Marina harbor, the extension of a new well developed part of Kalamata located at the south west side of the city near by the main harbor, not more than 5 min driving from the center of the city.

You will find cafes, Greek traditional restaurants, Italian food, near by the harbor and in the area.
Marina is a small paradise in the city.

You may find me there, as I frequently visit the place, after work, for relaxation or weekends, this picture is describing why.

A few notes for the shot:
-------------------------
Beside the EXIF information which doesn't say much, I have to thank the lord for such a day
The moment was there, I was in the way...
End of story.

But I didn't stand there, I wanted to dress the whole scene as it deserves it, like my golden feelings I had when I was taking the shot.


Post Processing Info:
---------------------
- White balance shifting to become a warmer scene
- Some exposure levels adjusted in order to tone my black areas.
- A clarification effect to make my picture look more dramatic was also used.
- A slightly noise say about 3% was also added in order to make my picture look sharper

I didn't want to use the unsharp mask, because of the strong white artifacts which creates around the sharpen silhouettes, the settings didn't help much to avoid those (perhaps my picture was sharp enough) and besides I don't like extremely sharp pictures unless there is a reason for (check here) :)

Hopefully enjoy the view and have a nice day
