Very nice picture.

A fine shot with nice depth of field to lift the post from the background. Definitely V1 for me, too! Wink

As Ron suggest tones down the very bright area above the boat, and prehaps at the LHS of the post too

V1 for me too, first off. It conveys the light and textures on the post, particularly the left side of it, much better.
On first viewing I wanted to crop a bit off the left of the frame, then I started taking in the greenish detail top left. It echoes the green tones in the post so beautifully, and balances the red top right.
Like this a lot. It does what I enjoy, it creates a connection, a relationship between two separate subjects.
I assume you've tried b&w?

V1 Nick, the colour balance is better.
Agree about the bright section top right but I don't think cropping it would help, the top rope around the post would be on the edge of your image causing a further issue.

V1. Love the green and less vibrant colour, and the vignette. Holds it all in.

(so, did your daughter take your previous image and you're trying to pass it off as your own!??? If, you're redundant. Good on her and shame on you. GrinGrin)

Half of it is out of focus but V1 is better than V2 anyway for removing the warm colour cast.

I like this Nick,a bit different but it holds my attention well.
V1 for me,the tones are a bit in yer face in V2,especially on the post.

Are you printing it for a competition ? if so,choose your paper well,not one for a glossy finish methinks.

Thanks all, lol @ Chris Wink

Thanks Janet, I let the long lens project go a bit. I must try more, just to be different- and yes I don't like glossy paper either.

John, Bart of the image was meant to be out of focus, I've got enough F16 wide angle shots in my pf Wink

Edit: remiss of me thanks for the opinions re versions (I agree btw).

It feel like a still from a movie - down to the lighting and style.

Love this... esp. V1, and agree about darkening the brighter area top right, and the red bit too? Very striking picture though, and Pete's comment is spot on.

It's funny you mentioned the cinematic look, that was something I was playing with at that time (must revisit it)

Looks good Nick , all that orangey atmosphere !

Does look like a still.

Im looking for that third tie down on the rope to be a little more distinct supporting the horizontal though.

Its a bit lost in the black blobby shadows and would have added to the tension of the diagonal.

Got any more New York ones yet Smile

Cheers Dave.the lighting here was a nightmare, this was 90 mins after sunset, and I was stood in 18 inches of water, this was the best I could get (now I would try a few more things)

Not got round to processing other New York images yet, been away most of this week, don't worry there will be a couple.
