[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken today at a local beach right after sunset. I went there with a friend of mine who has never been here before and he seemed to be lost in the awe of this moment...ocean deep.

I was experimenting with 14-bit RAW for the first time and must admit, there is truth in what they say about the increased DR. The details that come through during the editing stage are amazing. There is so much more color and headroom when you tweak the image in Lightroom 3.0. I am a believer in 14-bit RAW for these types of images now. Hope you like it and any comments or critiques welcome.
