I took this shot of this boat in poor light during a recent visit to Wells. I tried to bring a bit of life into it with Photoshop without much luck. I decided to post it and get some of your comments, hints and tips and maybe improve on it.

Comments and critiques are most welcome; thanks for stopping by to view this photo.

Hi

Like to cool lighting but feel that the image is not as sharp as it should be. I'd be tempted to crop off some of the water at the bottom as it's not adding anything to the image.
