Many thanks for the comments Frank, much appreciated.
Why I called it a tugboat I really don't know it is in fact a cornish lugger, I put it down to a senior moment!!
I like your image but I do think Frank has some very valid points about composition.
For me there is too much DoF and I would like to have seen the background thrown out of focus a little more as I think there are too many competing elements in the shot. However a crop in closer may well help with this.
It is a shame that the painter didn't have a traditional easel at his disposal because it would have firmly asserted that he was a painter but as we can only just see his canvas on his knee, he could be just doing a thumbs up to his mate.
Remember that you have to portray the scene to the viewer who wasn't there when you took the shot and doesn't know what you know about the situation. Therefore I would try to get the painter more into the shot if possible. I also love that anchor chain and there is a great shot to be had there I think.
I have uploaded a mod which I've cropped to try and reduce the competing elements a little. I also blurred the background and sharpened a little.
hope this helps
Many thanks Dave,allpoints taken on board !!!(no pun intended)
