Good sky, Paul.
And, of course, expertly photographed.

I'm not sure that all that f/g is helping the central placement of the boat.
In my opinion a better shot would be a 16:9 or 16:10 crop from the top down. Ok, you'd lose a bit of the mud and the channel, but I think a stronger image would result, actually helping the boat in it's central position - in the full shot it seems accidental rather than deliberate, to me.
An opinion, for what it's worth Smile

A fair enough point Bill, though not really the crop for me as I want that channel in the shot as it's curved shape sort of mirrors/mimics the cloud shape, losing some of it loses some of the association for me.

Also I do like the fact that you can see the actual bottom of the channel with the water in it too - though this I appreciate is only a personal preference.

LOL ... actually, I did originally shoot this to allow me a 617 pano crop which does work, but I preferred the full frame when I got back home Grin

What fan club's that then?

Love the cloud formation and the anger and drama it injects into the image Paul. The central placement of the boats works fine for me because of the dark channel running across the frame. The boat sits comfortably above that obvious lead in element.

Nice serene shot Paul a little more subtle than your usual uploads, pleasing none the less.
Agree with Bill on the comp as well.

In my opinion, the foreground works very well... If anything, I'd be tempted to crop a shade off the sky - it's very dramatic but I think it makes the shot a little top-heavy as the foreground is so much brighter.

Like the light in this Paul - interesting sky.

Cheers Cathy ... I was going to upload the large pano [cropped] version that I originally envisaged, this would've probably appeased both Bill and yourself by removing parts from both the top & bottom Wink, but seemingly I can't upload a pano if I didn't upload one originally Sad
