    Default Anchored

    Hello,

    This is my first time entering image for critique. Mentally ready for any criticism .
    Taken at Lower Peirce Reservoir at 8.40AM... I think the boat belongs to PUB... I hope I am not infringing anything

    I cropped some background to simplify the composition.



    Thanks...

    Don

    Artifacts along edges can be clearly seen.

    i feel that the crop is too tight, your composition needs some breathing space, maybe more water

    Thanks Ortega, foreground or background? I have 1 more composition with more water at the background... Maybe I can post it later.

    i think foreground would be more interesting due to the reflection of the boat
    a little more bg also would be good

    Hi Pranadewa, Most boat pics are done with a wide angle, boat in the foreground and the blue sea and sky in the background. To convey the tropical island theme.

    Ex. http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thum...pical_boat.jpg

    But I guess in this case the jetty is locked so you cant get near to the boat.

    For my taste, the colours are a bit too saturated.

    nice reflection, good contrast between blue and yellow, but they cant save the pic - very dull and boring: its a boat, not even a pretty one, and so what?

    it would be nice if the dock/platform is not there. then we can have a wonderful shot showing the contrast between the yellow and blue. but then again... it's there physically and we can't move it around.

    hmmm... a little PS work should do the trick.
