TG. Nice shot, but not that exiting though. You need to have an eyecatcher and some composition. You haven't. This is some of the reasons why this shot doesn't work!

Yes, there are too many boats in the background that detracts the eye from what is supposed to be the main subject.

However, nothing is lost.

You can still edit this shot in one of the thousands way Photoshop lets' you think of.

Here's a modest attempt at it :



P.S. :
Layer 0 :
- original shot with automatic level correction
Layer 1 :
- copy&paste of the layer 0
- Sketch - Graphic Pen Effect
- Negative Image
- A rough polygonal Lazo selection around the border of the main boat , trying to keep a certain distance from the boat
- Selection, round 8 pixels
- Selection, feather , 8 pixels
- Ctrl X

Thank you for your comments Klauss and brtsergio for you artistic effort. I know this is a very busy photo because of
the greater DOF with all the boats in the background.
I have used this pic as a test print so I can observe the detail from my 10D (one month old) when printed out on my
Canon i950 printer at A4.
