Leo, this image is magnificent. The composition is marvelous, you've picked the perfect time of day and angle for this, and the exposure is exactly right. The orange from the sky goes perfectly with the sails on the boat, and the purple carries through the image from the water to the buildings to the darker parts of the sky. I would not change a thing.   Posted: 09/10/2023 20:16:41

I too love the photograph, my only concern to possibly make it even better is the following consideration. With the boat in front, and in a position to be the possible subject, the exquisite skyline draws the eye away. I get confused about the subject, although they say in landscapes you may not need a subject. I tried various ways to focus attention on that fine vessel. Tried cropping, but the boat size seems to be a well thought out asset. I did try one last adjustment. I darkened the skyline and used a gradient from the sun in the sky to the boat foreground to move light focus to the boat. Curious what you think. I do agree with Andrew that it would be excellent the way it is, but thought I would offer another perspective,   Posted: 09/18/2023 17:23:09

Wonderful photo. Serenity and tranquillity.The soft glow on the sails of the boat reinforse the peacefulness of the image. I would darken the sky on the right and saturate the sail reflection.   Posted: 09/19/2023 13:52:10
