Yes, indeed it is, David. And a little about hte dark grey sky as well - the perfect backdrop.

It's so good, and the rest of your portfolio is consistent, making me wonder whether you intended uploading this in the Critique Gallery.

It might be fair comment that there's no principal centre of interest, a place for the viewer to focus on: but I see it as being a rich tapestry to view at leisure, and explore slowly. There's first-level impact, from the colours and hte light, but the second-level thing of offering a very definite structure is largely absent. It's at the third level, reviewing everything in detail that yeilds further rewards.

Yes, a nice shot.

I would think a little bit less warm can also work, along with a small brightness increase, and a little rotation to level the quayside.

Done in the mod, which is also cropped a little at the bottom.

I like your distorted reflections so much that I didn't want to crop any off, but having seen Willie's modification, which draws everything of interest together so nicely, I think I was wrong. The crop also eliminates the reflection of the white side of the building, in the bottom right corner, which is something which draws the eye downwards, as anything that bright will do. The alternative to cropping it would be to tone down the white a bit.

The crop also removes the bit of rope bottom left, and some of the rope bottom right, which I think give a cleaner foreground.

The light has certainly brought out the detail and colours of all of the houses very nicely. The harbour looks calm and peaceful. An attractive scene.

Willie's mod suggests an alternative, surreeal approach...
