I showed this to Mrs Dudler, and she said "beautiful" - she's the gardener in the family, and often tells me that the subject is more important than the technique. What we say in the Critique Gallery is often geared towards technical perfection, which is necessary for photogrpahic achievement, but doesn't necessarily matter to 95% of people who see your pictures (or mine, or Moira's, or Pamela's).
There's a lovely idea here, but it hasn't quite worked this time. With luck, you cna go back and develop the idea, because it's got a lot of potential.
I think this could work, in a wry sort of a way, with the boat heading straight for the edge - but it desperately needs a crop to put the boat o nthe bottom third, and to get rid of the dead space at the bottom.
I've posted a mod with the colours altered a little, and some deepening of the midtones.
And welcoem from me, too!
Sometimes, you do have the question of whether to shoot the descriptive picture, or the one with biggest impact.
And welcome from me, too. Pamela and Moira have said everythign there is to say about the Critique Gallery, except, perhaps, that the Critique Team is made up of a number of people with differnet interests, skills, and tendencies.
This is a very central composition. I think it could work nicely, though, with some toning down of the background - just burning in will do, to reduce the bright patches to dark greys.
I think I have to add "and they are lost too!"
One part of good toggery is spotting when you've caught a lucky moment, and using it!
He looks really relaxed: perfect for your title.
