    The sweat patches and the slightly flushed complexion in the second image, set the two apart. Tongue

    Quote:Great that you have started to post again Steven. I really hope it will come more too.
    I think you have captured a very beautiful motiv and the colors and the composition is very fine. Maybe it could have been a little more space in the bottom, and some more details in the dark areas!
    But good work, and i am looking forward to the next!

    Arne, thank you for your highly valued award and respected critique. Ideally, I wanted to compose the image with all of the boats reflection on the water in the shot, with some space between the reflection and the edge of the frame. However, I had to compromise, due to having to shoot over a fence and vegetation intruding into the bottom of the image, some of which I was able to remove by hand, but not all of it. If I composed as I wanted to, some of the vegetation and perhaps the fence would have gotten into the shot and I didn't see the composition this way. I reduced the original shots exposure to darken the image, but I could lighten it, in view of your critique, to see if this improves the image.

    Regards

    Steven
