While I respect the fact that everybody is entitled to their own opinion, I'd just like to point out that the entire effect in this image was captured entirely in camera, using a variety of filters and the available lighting. Granted, the lightness was raised slightly and a small crop was applied to adjust the composition in post-process, but apart from this, I'd like to know what makes you think that this is a manipulation.
Oh, and you might want to address this post to the group and moderators in question, and not the comments page of the deviation.
A cracking shot.I love your processing and the effects of the long exposure which gives it that surreal look that tablelander mentioned.Would love to see this without the boats just as a comparison.One minor nit,unless it's an optical illusion is the horizon seems tilted.
