Took this photo while fishing in Resurrection Bay out of Seward AK. this was a real neat rock formation, and we were able to travel through it with our boat.
Used Nikon D-70s & nikkor 18-70 lens at 50mm 1/125 F 11 this is a spectacular area with unlimited photo opts.
Here to learn, so all comments are appreciated.

Hi Ray,

This is an interesting rock formation and I like including the small rock to the right. You mentioned you could go through the hole - have any images closer to the formation?

A number of things are hurting the image quality. You can post to 800 pixel on the long side and to 145kb file size. At 13 kb, the image quality is bad and compression artifacts evident in the image (especially on right). From this location, I feel a panoramic cropping is more in order. The large expanse of ocean in the FG and the detail lacking sky in the BG are not helping out.

I suggest you go back to the original and start over again to up the image quality. I am hoping to see you back with a new version.

I'm in complete agreement with Robert on this one. It looks like an area with loads of promise and I think you can probably work the original to create a successful image.

Thanks for the comments Robert, I too am having a difficult time getting the correct size for posting.

Raymond, I am working with others to get something posted with step-by-step directions to guide you through the process.

we don't want that water running out of the photo now

The texture of the water is really great, but maybe there is too much of it? A panoramic crop might enhance this subject quite a lot
