Hi, I'm trying to get a bit serious with my picture taking ! All I have done was to crop the frame and to straighten the horizon. How could have I improved the photo. Would like some constructive criticism. Thanks. Mike

Just looking at the picture, whatever is sticking out the back of the boat and out of the frame is distracting. I would have preferred itto be gone or completely in the frame. Also I think if you could reduce your crop so the boat appears further away from the foreground I would like it better.Other than that I like the feeling the picture conveys.

I would try and take a panoramic shots (maybe three shots stiched together) of the horizon of the boats and masts (which look really great) silhouettet (sp?) against the sky with just water on front and leaving the boat at front out of it...

But I think it is a nice pic..also agree with the comment about the cropped out fishing rods at boat leftside...

Redcliffe, I changed your picture into a true silloette (sp) just to see how it would look and give you some ideas.

Many thanks for the replies. Point taken Tcook, got rid of the rods and made a great difference. What is the SP you refer to ?? Maybe it's something not on my LZ2 Cheers Mike

(sp) means he wasn't sure of the spelling of the word. You didn't mention the black and white version I did of your picture, I take it you didn't like it?

Mike, Glad you liked it I thought maybe you were upset that I had "messed" with your original ! My intent was to give you some different ideas. The work was done in Photoshop CS. If you have that program let me know and I'll send you the steps to do it. Jim

Mike, If Paint Shop has a "threshold" control or filter you might try it on the full image. Jim
