Default Old Boat (Revisited)

Here is an old boat taken at sun set, as you can tell by the colours. I shot this boat when I first got my camera about a month ago, I wanted to get another photo from a different perspective.

Ned, some candid feedback on the composition (MHO only): The whole scene strikes me as very busy. The tall grass in the foreground, the trunk of the tree in the mid ground, followed by the boat (which is your main subject), the overhanging branches over the boat, the water and then the sky makes it very crowded. Perhaps a different angle that just emphasizes the shore line, boat and sky would be simpler and more effective. Sharpness and color are very good.

Cheers,

Jehan

Hi Jehan! Sorry if it's a bit busy. I do understand you mean, but I had limited options, short of falling into the water... It didn't look good either standing in front of the boat, or on the other side dealing the rocks. Lots of Finns have their boats up on the land like this along the lake... just want to reflect what I see. But many thanks for your kind advice, mate. Ned
