Nice composition Viv. My first impression was the boats were a little soft.
I would go one of two ways- stop down further to get a bit more Dof- or go the other way and throw the boats out of focus a little more. See what others think- I am probably talking rubbish as usual. john We're off to see the Lizard~~the wonderful (sic) Lizard of Oz~~
Viv, it is a perfect image to do a 30 second blur job if you have photoshop.
Make a copy layer, apply some gaussian blur to get the effect on the boat s you want. Then use the history brush with a soft brush and paint Kojak and part of the water between the boats back. Took me a long to type this as to do it. john We're off to see the Lizard~~the wonderful (sic) Lizard of Oz~~
Thanks John and Carmen. I will experiment and see how it looks. I have gaussian blurred other backgrounds but I confess ignorance of a "history brush". I think a very slight blur might work. Viv (PS But what about the grasses - that could take all night!!!)
