Maybe it's my monitors or workflow, but I can't really see how a night shot of the ocean can be much different at this resolution.

Any help or advice gratefully received!

Maybe you are right, when I first saw the photo I was thinking "what ocean he's talking about ?" Then I realized that the horizon is the ocean and saw some lights there but no detailed body of any kind attached to them. Maybe that is what inspector was referring to. I never was in Barcelona, so for me this looks like a regular dark horizon with out of place lights.


Regards


Chris

Sorry, I should have made it clearer - there's no sky in this picture, the horizon is above the top of the frame.

ETA: d'oh! Yes there is, I'm an idiot. The horizon is at the top, but it's night!

What I'd assume the inspector is talking about is the band of blocky purpleish colour above the shore and up to about the level of the tall buildings. It's right across the image. and breaks up higher up. It's fairly obvious on this screen. I brightened up and cropped a small area area which may be easier to see.

Yeah, that's pretty subtle posterization out there, borderline at worst and could just as easily have been accepted.

That slight degradation wouldn't be reproducible on a press and would just go away entirely if this was reduced to a web use size. The shot is very clean and sharp otherwise, I'd hate to see you needing to smudge things up on a resubmit, so I'm to just bring this one in for you.
