Taken with my old camera on holiday in Tunisia. Trying to be artistic I liked the blue of the sky and the boat. Any advice welcomed.

Very nice abstract. I would clone out the little blemish/dot on the white part of the boat, right hand side. Lovely bold colours.

Powerful image. Strongly saturated colours, strong vertical and diagonal lines, triangles and implied triangles, just full of neat stuff.

I do like this kind of shot, and this is a good spot. There's some nice pattern and symmetry, and good textures. (I would be tempted to not bother cloning the blemishes out for that reason - but that's just me Smile)

My main thought as far as improvement is concerned is that you have lots of different shades of blue, which aren't quite different enough, for me. I think you also need to make the red 'ping' a bit more (for want of a better technical term. Just a tweak in levels and a curves adjustment should do it (see my modification). I think it darkens the sky enough to give you a bit more contrast.

I've also cropped in a bit to give the diagonal lines a bit more emphasis.

Hope you don't mind the suggestions - just my opinion, of course.
