I snapped this photo while in Key West at Mallory Square, known for its beautiful sunsets. I have been looking at the photo and cant decide how i feel about it so I wanted to know what you guys think...

Yeah maybe thats what it is ... I am still a novice ... I think it is a nice boat not sure how to edit / salvage the photo to improve it ... I'll try to adjust exposures & see what i come up with

Work on composition. Work on visualization.
Novice shooters, shoot first, ask questions later. You should look at everything in the scene before pressing the buttion.
Did you notice that the shore in the background intercepts the ship ... try to take note of how the background interacts with your subjects.

Editing won't change that.

Also remember, you don't have to post every single shot you take. Be critical and selective of the pictures you put up. Also don't be in a rush to put pictures up. Take your time, edit them, critique them yourself and just post stuff you are happy with...if you are uncertain about the picture then just move onto the next.

Yes I am starting to realize the importance of this in my reviews of my photos... unfortunately the same shot never comes twice, so i better get it rich the first time :-/

really beautiful colors.... I think you could have walked to left to capture this image...i think the land part does not help this image and could have avoided... that would have created a feeling of a deep see voyage.... further the ship is too centered?

Regards :D
