It's a good shot, John. Well exposed, good colours and sharp.

I think you were right to go in close but perhaps the composition could be improved by leaving a bit more space at the front for the boat to move into. This helps with all moving objects - cars, animals etc.

But certainly a nice shot.

Regards

Thanks Cath, I see your point but this was one time I got in close,
probably should have zoomed back a bit. Thanks for comment

I like that Petixa, but I wont ask how you did it, that would be getting ahead of myself.

hi Smile... I thought that you had not liked...
the problem is i don't speak english and i don't remember the exact values.
... I try
photoshop:
Image
Adjustments
Shades / lightings
and all there
shades... 50%
lightings 100%
and...Alteration of color -100%... aprox
Before to this I did a cap and then with tool erase or smear I erased the sea and the hull of boat with a big paintbrush, non-stop in details, this can remove two minutes... all, is very easy. I wait you understand and help you

Thanks Petrixa, sorry for late response but I have been away for a few days.
Thank you for your mod and the info on how you did it.
What I meant by "getting ahead of myself" was that I think this sort of manipulation is too advanced for me to grasp at this stage. I am findinding it difficult to learn everything all at once so I am concentrating on my actual camera work and then maybe the advanced photoshop later on, but thank you for your valued interest and advise.
John
