Its a good documentary shot Krishna.

I would only suggest that the white balance is on the cool side for a sunny day, better a little warmer, and add a little more saturation to the colours.

Uploaded a mod.

A nice record shot but I think that I would have zoomed in a little tighter. Using a prime lens doesn't give you that opportunity unless you can walk on water. I would also have been tempted, given that you have selected a balanced composition, to clone out the two buoys to leave the eyes exactly upon your main subjects, the cranes.

Why the negative exposure compensation?

Satisfactory record but tones and colours a bit weak,. Even with negative compensation, looks a tiny bit over exposed. Darken a touch and lift the contrast to give some punch.

Thank you all. I did feel there was something missing. Without having done much mod, except some cropping I uploaded this. Planning to visit this site shortly.

Frank, negative comp as it was overexposed on the LCD. And thought i needed the buoys in the foreground to describe the area.

Once again your critiques are helpful. Will play with the original RAW and upload a mod.
