Is there one?

It almost looks like this was shot in a medium or small file format. That or it was compressed horribly. Cool area but the image quality hurts my eyes.

Great area. I can't wait to get back up there for the summer. I never take the time to explore that part area. Only go Giffords and the Lobster Trap with my family and never take the camera. Might not do much for the others here, but it did for me.

I haven't been to Waterville in so long. I've always marveled at the power demonstarted here. I can't imagine what it would look like at flood stage.

Thanks for the feedback. This was actually taken from a raw capture, set to the highest level. Until now, i hadnt considered it poor quality.

Do you at least see what we mean? There is almost no part of the image that looks sharp. If the normal file doesn't look like that, then it was probably caused by the compression.

Yes, I went back and looked at the raw, and redid my compressed version to post which i think is a little sharper version. But i still havent got the sky and both types of water right, yet, it needs another go

Definitely easier on my eyes. Maybe part of the problem is the state of the water. It isn't crisp enough from a fast shutter speed, but isn't creamy enough from a slow shutter speed. That in between isn't very flattering.

It would be great to see another shot from the same vantage point, though I really like the cast of light on the bridge & buildings in this one.

(great avatar too!)
