Thanks for looking
I think not, but I am partial to the photo since I took it and it is one of my favorites. This photo always makes me smile. Per professional and/or A.net standards, does this picture make the grade (only considering the light pole in the foreground)?
While I'm at it, I'll sneak in a couple of other questions
Does it matter at what stage in the editing I resize the image? I've been doing it last in PS 2.0, and the reason is that I've sometimes seen editing software process the same image different ways depending on the pixel count.
Also, I used the tower as my guide for leveling the photo. Was that the appropriate decision? Does any plumb object (i.e. pole, chimney, tree...) suffice?
Thanks again. All opinions are greatly appreciated!
p.s. I think I might widen the crop a bit to get the entire length of the pier on the left.

Hello! well a very nice shot indeed.
Quoting Flyingzacko (Reply 3): I don't know if it's only me, but exposure and contrast don't seem right to me.
Quoting Viv (Reply 1): Sharpen at the last stage - after resizing
As usual, I'm not an expert but thank to what I have learnt last days with some new rejections, exposure and softness are definitely a problem here. You may want to try an extra kick of selective sharpening. I dunno about the contrast, I mean It looks like it might be also a little wrong, but I'm not sure about that.
