The shot was done last saturday when I went out with colleagues
for a day to sail on some Dutch lakes.

The boats with their unfolded sails waiting for people to take them out on to the lake catched my eye, and I liked the view. Hope you like it :-) The photo shows a sort of tranquility, pity the seagals were sitting further on in the harbour :-)

Here's a resized small version of the same photo:

proton, your shot has some numbers and it could be really great.

My opinion :

1) I would cut, or digitally erase, the upper-left part : that black part is really disturbing that beatiful sequence of masts.
2) I would add a 1/2 witdh image to the right. It should be easy to rebuild sand and sea with a big soft clone stamp brush.
3) I'm in doubt as far as the scrubbers presence is concerned. First reaction would be to throw them away but finally I think that maybe they add something to the shot.

Nice visual alliteration, Proton

The brushes upright do pay homage in an indirect way to USN submariners of WWII

When returning from a voyage, if all torpedoes were expended and no casualties among the crew, then a broom was attached to the conning tower of the submarine indicating a "clean sweep."
