Trying out some different techniques at the moment and this is another one of them, I quite like the mood of this image and the contrast between the wet and dry stones around the boats, so I thought I'd give it a whirl on here Smile

I feel this is a bit more subtle than your previous colour upload of the same place.
Works for me.

Def better than the one I previously critiqued Sean. Much improved control over the highlight detail in the boat bottom right .. there's a little bti of noise above the hills top right but nothing serious.

I'm still not sold on the other boats though. They appear a bit 2 dimensional, a bit cardboard cut out. I thinks its because the processing has amde them flat and saturated. I can see you trying to give them a kick and indeed they do have that but they have lost something too.

Overall the processing on the right hand 1/3rd is better in my opinion than elsewhere but it's an improvement and deserves a click for that alone.
