Love the bright colours, it almost looks like a kind of pop art style piece with how the lighting and bold shapes and shadows are put together, well captured.

This kind of high-contrast, high-saturation approach works very well for rusty things against a blue sea.

A couple of little suggestions about the composition. Although the camera is dead-level based on the horizon, the crane seems to be leaning a little to the left. The nearer `vertical' is very nearly true but the farther one is a bit wonky and that, to my eye, makes the picture look as if it's leaning. Since the crane is the dominant element, it might have been more effective to rotate the image a touch so that it looks vertical. (It's one of those annoying things that isn't quite vertical but feels like it ought to be.)

The photo also feels a bit weighted towards the left-hand side. I think it would have been better to pan to the left a little, even if that meant cropping out a bit of that lever sticking out to the right, just to give a bit more balance.

Those are pretty minor points, though — overall, I like it a lot and it reminds me somewhat of a photo I took of a rusty old crane on a Greek island. Smile

Super advice, thanks a lot. I marked it as constructive, which it is very much. fred
