Hi Stu,

Not too sure about this one, no comments so far so allow me to be the first,

I like the idea, but for me it doesn't quite work. The top rope cuts right through the boat in the background and the knot is very central in the frame. My eye keeps going to the white boat as it is lighter than anything else in the picture.

I would have gone in much closer to the knot (telephoto again), put it on the third, set aperture to F2.8 (or wider) and thrown the background completely out of focus. But that's me.

Hope this helps,

See you soon!!!
