    I always have a hard time knowing when I'm done.

    I'm giving this as an 11x16 matted enlargement for a Christmas gift.

    Not at all happy with the sky, but attempts to improve it have made things worse.

    If anyone has any advice at all, I'm all ears. Or, if someone wants to mess with it a bit, be my guest.

    Is it even gift-worthy?

    Many thanks,

    Jon

    This is my 2 cents ... I would crop the image to a vertical and get rid of the right side (Houses/boats), so the image is of the main rowboat and the smaller ones on the left.

    I think something like this...[​IMG]

    Just realized there is a little bit of the boat left on the right...I would be sure to crop it all the way off. Is this photo the original? I would like it better if there was more sky. Now you almost cut off the top of the roof on the houses.

    I don't generally like to do these things, but it's always possible to shoot a nice sky somewhere else and photoshop it in. Just a thought.

    Almost ... keep the Red shack and most of the rowboat ... just crop off the Right side.
