John, the focus of your piece is those marvelous, colorful canoes waiting for duty. I like how they present themselves to form a leading, curved line. A couple things you might consider to bring that out even more; erasing the taller vegetation that blocks the view of the boats, cropping to take out as much of the grass as possible, and toning down the sky and grass, for me its vividness overshadows the colors on the canoes. It's a great scene. Happy New Year to you!   Posted: 01/10/2022 19:22:52

Hi John, I can see those canoes mooring along the curvy shore, like a "S" line, which maybe the best composition if shooting from the first canoe linkup to the end canoe.

Hi Louis
I took several different compositions of the canoe line including the one you have recommended, but that one didn't give me a good perspective. But thank you for your review.

I like the cropped version best and especially like the addition of the birds.   Posted: 01/17/2022 20:01:42
