Sorry for doing this, but I got such good feedback yesterday on how to improve this that I said I'd give it a go.
Modified yesterdays upload to lighten the left hand side of the life buoy as suggested. I also lightened the image slightly overall, used curves to increase contrast & remove slight colour cast, dodged & burned, & went around and cloned out all the papers in the grasses.
I got rid of the dodgy border & replaced with this other dodgy border!
Interested in feedback again. Thanks.
