[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday my wife an I traveled to Atlantic City to attend the wedding or our nephew Todd and his lovely bride Lisa. This was undoubtedly the most unusual wedding and reception that I've ever attended. It was held in the 32nd floor spa of the Water Club, which has such a beautiful night time view of Atlantic City. The lighting in the spa was both beautiful and a photographer's nightmare. My camera and lenses have limited capabilities in this type of situation, and it was interesting to watch the two professional photographers work the wedding.

Anyway, I took a few shots that I'm happy with, this being one. I braced the camera against a small pedestal. I did a little perspective correction and leveling along with using the color curves tool and unsharp mask.

HI Werner,
You have done great with the ambient lighting in this shot, the colours in the pool are nice and rich with a great reflection, the uplighters are giving a bit oe on the wall but imo they are adding to the calming atmosphere of the spar, great lines around the image and nice clear 'T' on the pool floor. Best wishes
