I might like to see the grass toned down a bit - so it draws less attention from the barge. The colors are great, but that bright green draws my eyes toward the less interesting grass. Love the way the buildings look here - what a great scene!

Beautiful composed and processed photo with nice colours, Simon! The texture of the stone-wall and the houses is beutiful. I like this very much, as I'm a sucker for small-boats. Thats why I wonder about the looks of boat #2

The first one, Gellibean, is an ordinary-looking canal-boat, while the second one, looks like somethin out of Gotham City and owned by Batman itself......

Great job!

I, too, like the composition and colors of what appears to be an HDR treatment. Well done.

Good morning Simon. I was going to work on just the grass, but desaturated the whole scene just a bit after working on the grass. Your thoughts? Not sure if you planned on it being so vivid. By the way, good call on that "Bat Boat". hahahaha
