Super image, I love the blue light. The composition is spot on. The image could be made lighter or darker, it could be made less blue but I don't see any areas for improvement.

Dzien dobry Lukasz!

Welcome to Epz.
This is a pretty impressive first upload.
The only thing that I would do to this would be to remove the light from the hilltop to the right.
Otherwise, I'd leave it alone.
Well done.

Dzien dobry Lukasz!

This is a beautiful shot, well composed, and a very nice exposure. If I was pressed to make any suggestion, I would warm the shot slightly, as in the mod.

Scroll up to modifications to see what I mean. I also remove that light on the hill as Bren suggested. Its very small, but it does attract the eye.

Enjoy the site,

Hi Lukasz welcome to EPZ and a nice image to start with. Nicely composed with good foreground interest and overall, well balanced.

I have uploaded a mod as well where I lightened the shadows a little, removed both the hilltop light and also the rope on the beach. I find the simpler the better with this image - no distractions, well done.

I would simply leave this as it is. Can see no need to do anything. A lot of skill on show!

Difficult to add anything to the very perceptive changes made by Focus_Man, except to draw a lesson in composition in order to understand how a good image can be made into an excellent one. To begin with, it is important to deal with the question of the main focus of attention. In the original, in spite of an excellent composition, it is obviously the superb background, not the boat, it blends with the foreground. Details are insufficient! The modifications speak for themselves. Background and foreground are now connected and the boat stands out. Extraneous details are eliminated, some over-bright highlights are toned down, colours are restored, and the eye is drawn immediately to main focus. Hope I am not being too repetitive, but sometimes a good lesson is worth repeating. Thank you Szturmowiec, and good photography to you.Smile
