The processing is rich and dark, a wonderful slice of life shown here!

A beautiful scene.
Too dark and blurry for me to be in your top shots, Marian.
Perhaps I should clean the monitor.

I like this, I don't know why but I do. It has the feel of being taken on a 1970's Kodak Instamatic camera on some cheap no name film and it just works....somehow. Interesting, was the 70's look what you were after here Marian?

I am intrigued with your camera setting with this incredibly moody image.
Note to F G.......be more adventurous with the BBC.....
I would love to see this cropped on the left hand side of the screen
I would like those 2 boats taken out
I realise it would make a different image and possibly not what you wanted

Softer image which is probably what you intended to highlight the child sitting
lost in his own world. The boats are very photogenic also.

It does have a 70's slide film feel to it, Marian. For me a little more light needed in the shadows and crop out totally the half-boat on the left. I had a play in PS5 but Mods not enabled.

The child left to its own devices on a busy working beach while the adults go about their daily work.
A sign of times gone by.

Thank you everybody for your comments on this picture. I just uploaded a version with the cropping suggested by my dearest Barbara.

I didn't want to give it a 70's look, but definitely wanted to make it look like an impressionist painting. What I captured is a piece of real life in a fishermen village at dusk. Everyone is on their own, ignoring me while I was stealing this moment for my self enjoyment.

In this picture, I loved the rough edges of the figures, the thick strokes of color and the purple highlights mixed with the dark verdigris of the sea. To me is more a painting than a picture, I processed it intentionally to give that impression.

And finally, the star of it is that child playing by himself, safe and free.
