A beautifully balanced composition Ronnie. The wooden jetty taking one straight to the heart of this beautiful setting, whilst the colour of the boats add warmth and charm.

I don't think you could have composed this any better, Ronnie.
The warm colours of real wood on Marion really come through.
I wonder if the owner named her after his favourite western star and not after a female, as tradition is for boats?

Sadly the craftsmanship in building these very beautiful boats is dying, it is through captures like this we can still enjoy them Ronnie, tones textures and composition all stunning, going mad today laptop taking ages to put on a comment.

Good strong comp with the diagonal lead in from the left, gives lots of depth too. The boats are all nicely distinct from each other by water or colour and the wooded bacdrop sets the rurality off perfectly.
