Superb recession and stunning early morning feel, nicely caught - those sort of early morning grey and bronze tones before colour really gets a proper hold of the day. Nice boat - looks to me like a Westerly - Fulmar?

For me a slight crop across the bottom - there is perhaps too much fg water and maybe also a tad from the rhs margin - even though your composition looks to be allowing for rule of thirds the end result may be a little more balanced.

Bit of a flare giving a slightly wierd purple blob just below the cottage - not enough to be distracting.

Good stuff Smile

Ohh thanks very much for that, Ketch Smile

Well you're right, that's a Westerly... but it's not our boat. I took the photo from our boat which is a Westerly Galway. Had a wonderful few days, with flat calm water, nice little bit of wind, despite squawly showers.

Beautiful colours. I do agree with ketch, a slight little crop of the water at the bottom. Apart from that I love this shot! You've captured the early morning mood perfectly. Smile

A beautiful early day shot when the colours, light and atmosphere are just superb.

A wonderful image and I think the "slightly wierd purple blob" is simply lens flair. Do you use a lens hood? Delightful image.
