    Well its an interesting look here, but to add critique, I think with a shot like this, camera info is important... I'm guessing the lighting here is supplied by the lighting around the docks??? although the shadows in the water might be telling a different theory...

    what are these , some kind of tour boats?? odd that the boat names are all three in nearly the same script.... anyway, throw up some info...

    i noticed it looks like you cropped the top 15% or so off, and added it again to the original?

    other than that, a lot seems off to me. it looks like you tried to edit out the sky, and missed quite a few spots and IMO, it makes the whole image look fake. everything from the deck on up just looks off to me.

    hopefully you dont take offense to my comments, but im just being honest and "calling it as i see it".

    I first looked at this and thought it was three model boats I was seeing. If thats what you were going for thats cool. Good job.

    Look like fishing tour boats getting ready to go out for the night. Nice color.

    The lighting too is wierd. Look at the shadows the boats cast on the water.
    The background too while black like night time it doesn't look natural.
    Something is very off about this.

    Must be good though because we are all really examining it and talking about it.

    to illustrate the parts that seem off to me, i circled most of them in yellow.

    [​IMG]

    like i said, the top looks like it was a crop of the top 15% or so percent added to the top of the original, and the rest of what i circled looks like parts that were missed when the background was removed and turned black.

    i have no idea if this was shot as-is, or done in Photoshop, so i may be totally wrong, but the top part i circled is obviously cropped and added.

    youll notice what you see above looks like his original image, but if you look, its actually 2 images, the top part that was cropped and added, and the bottom portion without the added part on top.

    This is getting stranger the more I look. No shadows on cabin(?) light coming in from all over the place. Odd shadows in water.

    Its almost like stadium lighting.
    I work and live on a boat a majority of the year and Ive never seen a scene like this.
