Default Boats along the lake at sunset

Not sure what more I can do to this photo, in terms of brightening the shadows, or darkening them... I was facing the sun which is behind the trees.

What color, sharpness, shadows concerns I like it and wouldn't want to change any of that. Only I think the boats don't do anything to make the shot better.

Many thanks! As for the boats, well there are so many along the lake.

I like the overall composition of the shot and the exposure is fine.
The only thing that bothers me is the boats seem out of place...
That doesn't sound right, they are where they're supposed to be,
its just that they detract from the beautiful scenery without adding
any significant interest to the shot. On the other hand, if you took a
shot of the boats as the main subject of the photo, and had some of that
scenery in the composition, it would be an added bonus.
Just my 2 cents, from someone that admits to being composition challenged.

Not that I think this shot needs it, but the K-7 has highlight and shadow correction built in. Press the info button twice to give you the quick menu (or whatever it's called) and you can select it and the strength from there. I didn't like it personally as it introduces a lot of noise at ISO400 and above, but never really played with it much.

I did use that feature, I have it on my harddrive... Really enjoying the camera! Thanks.

Ned - You are posting some really fine photos here - lovely scenes and lush woodlands. Just my 2 cents - don't worry so much about the processing details, just enjoy taking all the photos! (And I will enjoy seeing the results!!)
