    What does everyone think to this? I know I need to do something to it, but am not sure what. I want to get rid of the space in the top left hand corner, but that would mean cropping out the top of the mast. I also don't know whether it'd be black or white or in colour.

    Or have I just got the whole composition wrong??

    Help!

    just my quick observation: you've cropped way too tight on this. the crusier needs a proper setting. i would reshoot.

    Yeah, true, the only problem was there was a fat hairy builder right next to it!

    Maybe i should go back another day and give it another go

    i find it ok. even the tight crop. what i would really improve here are thecolours. make the water greener and the boat more wood-coloured:D also the sky a nicer tint of blue. that's about it, the crop works fmpov. but of course if you can reshoot do that. and my suggestion is that from now on you should just shoot on a wider crop than what you think you need. that'll make you always have room for cropping, even if you think you don't need it.

    i agree with jon. your missing the top of the mast and i want to see the whole reflection of the boat in the water.

    cool boat though. i think its seen better days.


    oh, one last thing, wait till the duck swims out of the picture next time :lol:
