Comments welcome and appreciated!

Very cool capture, Mike. It would definitely be cool to live on one of those boats. #1699556

Amanda D. Austwick level-classic November 16, 2017

Love this Mike. Nice colors and reflections! #11658111

Michele Peterson level-classic November 16, 2017

What a really neat capture! The colors are amazing, and I love the "look" of the whole scene. Good to see you, too! :-) #11658120

This really looks like a miniature model of a waterfront scene. All 3 of the houseboats look like toys! It's nice that you have a bright red one, too.

Mitch Spence level-classic November 16, 2017

Wow, what wonderfully inventive design in these houseboats. #11658204

Thanks so much for the very kind comments! I did blur the top and bottom of the image which gave it that miniature model look. All of the masts in the image distracted from the subject boats, so I used that effect to focus attention to the main subjects. :-) #11658332

That's one crowded harbor! But beautifully captured with the interesting and unique elements of the 3 foremost boats. Well done, Mike! #11658369
