I like the image, but feel you have to much in the image,cropping the images on the left side of your original is fine, but looking at the cruise ship, it's to far away. The small tenders next to the ship and the small ship at the stern of the cruise should be removed as well as the the boat on the horizon. Cropping the image between the cruise ship and the person walking to the small boat I feel should be your image.   Posted: 06/11/2020 15:36:59

Thank you for the suggestions. Your cropping looks good too.   Posted: 06/16/2020 13:01:48

I too like the image with Stuart's crop.

In addition, I would back up on whatever is creating the artifacts, the white outlines around the face, arms, and legs of the man. It was probably oversharpening that did it. And I'd prefer to see the image less saturated and less blackened. The man has lost all facial features.   Posted: 06/16/2020 13:17:06

The ship does not look sharp and the small tenders don't help. I agree with Stuart's crop and he got rid of the artifacts which were probably caused by over sharpening.. The vivid colors add snap to the image.   Posted: 06/19/2020 20:02:39

I like the crop that Stuart suggested. It helps me to focus on the vibrant colors. For me the image is much more peaceful without the cruise ship.   Posted: 06/20/2020 20:23:24

Good complementary colors, with near mid and far objects of interest. Good removal of haze at the ship. I like the contrast between the large cruise ship and the small boats. Very good.   Posted: 06/24/2020 11:43:05

I think it is interesting to find the image with and without the cruise ship such a different story. I think the central story of whether or not you include it would be your response to the question: What is the story I am trying to tell?

Great image either way....   Posted: 06/24/2020 14:57:37

Yes, primary image has too much elements: the man, the boat and the cruise ship. Stuarts crop is good. Also the cruise ship with boat without man would be good.

Original image is not very sharp. That's why a lot of processing had to be done to make it sharper. That's why it looks somehow too artificial.
