This is very nice with the early morning light shining on the mud and water. What is lovely too is the sun lighting up the island - you could call it celestial light.

Good lead in line to the main boat with the chain. There is a good line going from the main boat back to the boat on the left and then over to the island.

My only thought was it is a pity that the top of the mast of the main boat is chopped off. I was wondering if it would be better to sacrifice some of the foreground to get all of the boat in the shot. It would alter the balance of the shot though in that there would be more sky. Or maybe you could have tried a portrait format.

It's a shot with great potential but you might have been able to get more out of the composition. What is slightly confusing is whether this is a picture of the boat or Holy Island.

Best wishes

Catherine

I tend to agree with Catherine about the top of the mast. My preference would be to go for a portrait shot to get the whole boat in.

I also feel there is a slight batle between the boat and holy island to be the centre of attention. I would probably have tried to make the boat a little more prominent in the frame.

Thanks for all the feedback which gives me plenty food for thought. The mast was very very tall, and I do have some portrait shots which also miss off the top of the mast. To get the top of the mast in would require either an extremely wide view or moving back a long way - which might produce a good shot, but a very different view.
