Boat at Sunset.

Hi folks,

Havent posted for a while but am just wandering what anyone thinks. This was taken in Supetar on the Island of Brac in Croatia.

its a nice picture. Critique id have:

-Its a little soft. Understandable given the low light but id try to sharpen it a tad.

-The mast is cut off. its a heavy black line, so it immediately draws the eye, but leads nowhere. Id have tried to include more/all of the mast if possible.

Its a nicely composed image overall though.

I think it's fine that the mast is cut off beceause the dark part of the boat body and the shape of the boat itself is way stronger than the line of the mast making it a nonissue IMO. My only nitpick is the specular reflection on the bow from the flash.

Hi Schmintan, DigMe,

Thankyou for comments, I will be working on the various little fixes.
Cut of mast cant do much about as too far back and was in the soup. The specular reflection will be worked on in lr4.

Thankyou for honesty.
