About the Image(s)

This is one of the docks in my home city which seems to be mostly used for "parking" large ships now. There was a nice sunset and I could get access so took the picture.
A little work to increase the shadow detail and darken the light areas and a slight crop. I don't know whether to crop the yellow box on the left hand side out, what do you think?

Andrew, to my eye the sky is well done and casts a very nice mood for this seafront image. From my experience however there is too much dark space. In the VF I played around with what pieces to brighten to add a "mid-ground" to this image. I chose only the three tankers on the left of the channel. I felt that the white forecastle at the extreme left and the small boat in the channel toward the right were distracting when lightened. To your Q about the yellow box, for my taste I would not crop it out bu leave it in as is or perhaps slightly darker.   Posted: 05/10/2021 11:00:10
