    This has potential...

    I really like the colors of the oars and the boats. But I think I would have composed differently. The 2 boats in the distance look crowded near the border with the partial rocks, etc. I would have probably included more of the boat in the foreground.

    Thanks, Marcus.

    I agree about including more of the foreground boat. It was situated tightly alongside two docks (L-shaped) and I struggled with this as I composed the shot.

    I have a few similar shots, some landscape orientation, that I may post too.

    I'm sharing Marcus's thoughts on this: the colours are really lovely, but at the top there ought to either have been some MORE to see, or even less, no moutains and gap in the mountains at all. Just water and boats (one in foreground, two in far background), and the jetty, if that is one, or only the bottom part of that construction. As it is, the horizon looks fairly tilted, so the ocean water (at least) is soon going to run out of your frame ;).
