i like the image, and love the light on the boats decking, overall it almost has a surreal feel , possibly its been cross processed because the colours look wrong but somehow they also right and possibly more creative. i like the way the light and haze in from the background has made the sky blend into the sea. overall there is a strange finish almost like surface blur over the image which would have been better being described in the text box because its hard to critique if we are unaware of the processes involved. the cloning has been hurried i feel and looks greener than the surrounding area and the missing rope gives the game away.

looking at the direction of the lighting its not too surprising that you have blocked up shadows on the front side of the boat, its pretty contrasty anyway. possibly some minor fill in flash or a reflector may have helped push some light back in there or even blending a couple of different bracketed exposures but even on raw, if there isnt anything there, its impossible to recover detail because there is very little information recorded on the black side of the histogram, most of the digital information recording detail is to the right side of the histogram.

You are going to get the lighten shadows and background too bright here, I bet. You may not have fully intended this, but your composition is spot on and the tonal range suites this image beautifully. Very well done.

Yes it is a shame about the lost of detail from the boat, but you still got a very interesting photo.
Well done.

Leave it as is, its quite beautiful. As Paul says, everything wrong is right for this. It has a soft, dreamy feel to it that really hits the spot. And brightening of shadow is a disaster, as the shadows are completely blocked, - not detail at all.
