Nice enough image, the colours are really nice. Personally would have pulled back a bit and got the whole of the mast and reflection into the shot though, the composition just looks a little cramped.

As I said though, nice colours and lovely details. #1823385

Carolyn, Kay, Bob, Sherrye, and Darren,

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I really appreciate your generous support.

Darren, personally, I would like to do exactly the same thing to boost the composition, unfortunately there were pretty many other boats around, as well as a rather ugly shoreline to the front. I decided to leave those out to keep the image simple.

Best regards,

To me the photo is mostly about the dark buoy and bird versus the sun, with the boat just for the balance. I like it!
Congrats! #1984802
