    i think the only thing that makes me want to change anything about this picture is the horrible reflection in the water, but... you cant change it can you?

    so i would personally just leave it ;)

    Being brutal (sorry) sometimes shots don't work - for me personally this one doesn't have enough of interest or any outstanding detail/colour. I think if it were mine I would be using the delete key.

    perhaps someone else has more imagination than me though ?

    I played with them a bit. I don't think any of my crops are prize winning...but maybe it'll give you some more ideas?

    Then I played with the contrast a bit...

    After looking at it a while...I guess what bothers me most is that the boat is a little OOF (or it just looks out of focus because of the lighting/lack of detail on it)

    Cheers!

    Thanks nabero for the crop ideas and yes i'm thinking the low light caused the image to lose its lustre.. Hmm i'm still stuck on the idea of a usable print maybe i'll go with B$W with some grain...
