[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just a quick one from my brand new Canon Powershot G12, a present I received from my son from the States. Quite a reliable camera. I was hunting to produce that highlight on the oar of this canoeist who was wandering around these boats in Msida, Malta. I performed som PP work to boost the starburst reflection on the shining white oar of the canoeist. Cropped the original to obtain this panoramic presentation.

Hi Francis

I love the flash of light of the shiny paddle blade & the superb warm cold colour contrast between the yellow prow of the boat & the reflected blue skylight in the water. The panoramic format works well. Good sharpness & framing. Tfs!

Boa tarde Francis,
Today the thumbnail fooled me. I did not recognize immediately the your personal style.
As always a beautiful and very well done picture in which are present all the virtues of your brilliant and rigorous technique.

Hi Francis,
