I'd prefer it with Neil's colour amendments, but in two versions...

(a) uncropped, with the houses still present, because they put the boats in context, and balance the boats & the rocks;

and (b) cropped a little less than Neil's cropping, so that the complete curve of the seaweed on the beach is included at the top, as well as the waterline. This, in my view, would make a more complete composition, with a full set of partial ellipses.

I'd also like to have moved the rightmost boat upwards & leftwards, to make the lines of boats suggest more curves,but I wasn't there. You could do it by cloning the boat and then some sand, but many would say that's cheating!

Neil's interpretation sensibly concentrates on the boats, and I like that too.

Thanks for your suggestions. I had done the exagerated colours before (http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=90) and thought that the boats would be a candidate for something more natural. Guess I was wrong.

I did some levels, curves and saturation on the image though.

As for cheating... well, I ps'ed a lamppost out in the foreground :-p
