Thought I'd throw one in, softened in photoshop from a patio pic.

Thank you, Lorell & Grant.

I've noticed that a disproportionate number of my best photos were taken years ago. Not sure I want to think about why that might be.

Kraffty. that is very nice!. (BTW, I'm envious of your patio view.)

Outstanding photos, Mary.

#1 is such a peaceful capture of a natural scene.

#2 has a superb composition and appeal.

Mike,
Nice Soft Panorama. Great composition. The softness is ethereal and mysterious.
Mary.
Your images show how well weather and atmosphere play together to produce soft images. They could have been mush, but the contrast of the sharper foregrounds really made the images standout. Well played. If I was a betting man I would bet these were straight from the camera, but I could be wrong. I especially like how the boats recede into the fog.

I've seen both of your watercolour painting skills in action. These images would make great paintings.

Mike, Very nice pano with eye catching colors and contrast. Great silhouettes too, I'd like to add.

Mary, Nicely done. I especially like the ones with the boats in the foreground.
