    I really like the symmetry, its rare to see 2 opposing silhouetted images.

    That's a really neat shot. I personally think I would have liked to see more DoF, since I don't think the subject needs any help drawing your eye there. Still I really like the shot.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I took a bunch of photos of this scene, some vertical, some horizontal. The first pic above is one of the first one I edited. Though i've been having a bit of trouble getting it exactly right. The lack of focus in the foreground doesn't bother me, I actually like it. Strange as it may seem, the symmetry is what is giving me problems, even though the entire pic is based on the symmetry of the subjects. In the pic above, the reflection and sunspot isn't quite centered between the boats, and it is throwing me off a bit. Also, that sun spot is just distracting the more I look at it. I went back and edited a few of the vertical shots, and settled on this one as my favorite. I cropped a little on the bottom and top.

    Edit: I'm also noticing that when I post pics full size in flickr, they look really blurry. The mediums look ok. I must be doing something wrong when I resize, because these pics are uber sharp and crips.

    I personally like both versions! I definitively enjoy the foreground with its painting look.
    The overexposed part is a bit disturbing to me though.

    It would have been better to take two different exposures and then merge them into a higher dynamic image ;)

    Very interesting stuff anyway!
