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

I have to say I thought the same thing as Chappo until I realized the focus was on Kojak. Still a nice image. Smile Amanda

Thanks John and Amanda. You are right, I was focusing on Kojak and tying to get the boats out of focus! But the experiment did not quite work - next time I will reduce DOF further. Viv

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

I have to say that I like this image a lot. It's simple but a lovely capture, if you add blur it's going to be strange for me, but maybe I'm wrong Smile

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!!!)

I agree with Carmen here. I think the dof is perfect for this photo. Nicely composed and good title.
