A view of the yachts and other boats on the bay and homes in the hills of Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, California, USA. I made this photo while the Catalina Jet, which had transported us from Long Beach to Avalon, was making its way into the dock. Effects added in Topaz Simplify & Alien Skin Snap Art on separate masked layers in Photoshop CS6 at low opacity to bring out the sunny Mediterranean colors, plus subtle textures from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures (Artiste/Bold Brush Painterly and Classique/Cordova). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 70mm [140mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/640 sec., ISO 200, handheld, morning sun)
