Agree with Pete - it's great to see a new perspective. I love the colour and clarity to V1, but I do think that the left side needs cropping a little. Horizontally the crop in V2 is nearly ideal (perhaps a tad too much? Perhaps a cm less??), but it looks cropped from the bottom and top a too, and I think this is a loss overall. However the greatest loss is the colour.

Still I'm green with envy! Wink

I like both versions because of the beautiful light, but I wonder if a crop somewhere in between might be even better... I feel V1 is perhaps a bit "heavy" on the right-hand side, but I like the blues very much and V2 excludes them...

Going to go against the grain on this one Chris, but I personally think you've revealed too much detail in what should be shadow and it appears visually too bright in that area for me. The prow of the boat in particular leaps out. V2 is better for me. Great comp though!!!
