Hi schent1

What you wrote is very similar to some experiences I've had... revisiting photos of some time ago, and changing an opinion on them (some for the better / some for the worse).

I actually think the photo sort of works for me. It's a different take (the painter / foreground blurred)... and the subject for the artist is in focus. Then again, I would like to see 3 versions:
a) as you had it
b) reverse - that is, painter/painting in focus, actual boat blurred
c) all in focus.

Still, I like what you've captured.

Bynx, a WONDERFUL masterpiece you've done here. Admire your post processing work... looks so lifelike...only 'out of the ordinary' thing is near the artist's left hand...

Default To me...

Being an absolute beginner I can only say what I would like to see and not crit your submission.

Personally I would have the painter and the painting in much sharper focus than the boat and rest of the background. We all know what a boat looks like, I'd concentrate on accentuating the painting and the artists' attempt of capturing the rest of the scene...

I like the mood and feel!
