Lovely scene. Nice guiding lines and soft colors. Reminds me of the shores of Nova Scotia.
I would have like to see a little more sky.   Posted: 11/15/2020 16:15:38

Well thought out and executed image captures the detail and freshness of this seaport. Image appears to be a bit stronger and centered - to my eye - if cropped just inside the post on the right side.   Posted: 11/16/2020 18:59:16

A very nice scene. I love the colors in the sky and it's reflection on the water. The composition of the boats and pier takes my view from the bottom and around the pier to the boats. Only minor suggestion is perhaps having a tiny more space to left of left pole.   Posted: 11/18/2020 13:17:50

Hi Judy, I love how you compose the leading lines towards left. The yellow lines of fish cages is complementing to the whole scene. I agree with Kathryn for having a little bit of space left to the left pole. However, I can fully understand you are losing part of the left image as a result of geometric adjustment to make the pole straight. IMHO, removing the two right poles on the right makes the image more appealing. Nice shot Judy.   Posted: 11/18/2020 19:49:09

Nice version Frans. The negative space without the pole seems to add impact. I had thought it needed the third pole to keep some rhythm.   Posted: 11/27/2020 08:56:29

Hi Judy,

I think the adjustment you did really made the boats more prominent and improved the feeling that I am at the harbor. Also, I do not think the idea of the lobster traps on the pier is diminished at all. I think I would also agree with removing the pole but that seems to leave a lot of empty water so maybe cropping a bit of the Right ( to 8x10?)
