Shimmers of Gold
This is from the Southwest DC Waterfront. There are lots of boats docked down there and people actively live on them. Most marinas are empty in the winter but this one had people coming and going and going. You could tell a lived from one that was winterized. While I complain about the subarctic conditions the reality is winters in DC are fairly mild with only a few cold days so you can keep a boat in the water without fear of heavy ice.
This is a HDR that I just quickly put together. No idea what preset I selected but it had the look I was going for without the hassle of doing a manual edit. Brought it into Photoshop for a quick fix with the sky noise and then called it a day. Not often an image comes together quickly but this one did and I was happy with it.
