Got one I'd like to see what you can do with it
Lens: Samyang 100-500mm Camera: K-x Photo Location: beachside ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F6.7 

Shutter speed was actually 1/640s, and f6.3.

I tried adjusting it but still couldn't get the it to look right. It was morning and the sun was shining, there was haze on the beachside and I was on the mainland shooting across the water.

Thanks Tom. I guess that's the way it is supposed to look. I guess I haven't seen enough hazy mornings to tell it's ok.

You have got dirt on the sensor (two spots that I can see) and there is banding visible in the sky. This is probably the result of working the image when it was opened up as a pre-view and then saving it after you completed your corrections. (If indeed you have done any)

When opening an image in a viewer all you display is a highly compressed JPG that is imbedded in the image file. So next time do all your correction work by opening the image file proper in a dedicated manipulation program such as Photoshop or similar. This will open up the file itself rather than the pre-view of it.

Greetings

And I had dust removal turned on. I didn't see those. But this wasn't shot as a jpg. I shoot RAW only. And the banding probably came from my trying to fix it. Thanks for the input.

I'll get the rocket blower out and get rid of those dust spots. I see by this, I can't rely on the K-x's dust removal on start up, eh.

Circled the spots.

To judge by the angle of the shadows, the sun was very low therefore the shadows in your version are too light IMO.

Schraubstock, thanks, but I saw the dust after you mentioned it. I got out the Giottos and hopefully blew that stuff off. This was shot in the morning, facing east, so yes, the sun was low as it was just coming up.

maltfiac, no, that's not what I saw either.

I took the RAW back into my photo editor and this is what I came away with. It's more to what I saw when I shot this photo. I also removed the dust spots.
