Window to the Sea

This one is also very close to being my favorite shot I brought back from Greece! While going to Santorini, the sea was so calm it seemed more like an abstract and imaginary surface stretching into infinity. Along with the ferry's balustrade being lit by the slightly yellowish and translucent roof on the air seat deck, the entire scene seemed more that just a little surreal...

For post-processing I first corrected the distortion shown by the Sigma lens at 10mm... Afterwards there's some contrast stretching done on the sky for better separating the clouds from the sky.
