Just going throught the threads and when I hit this one immediately the missus says "That's lovely". I think it's a great shot too.
As Fozzy says the composition is top notch but I'm most impressed with the way you've balanced the light and got the colours to come through so strongly in low light without it looking enhanced. Even if it's PP'ed, it's really well done.
I'm liking those punchy colours on the boats in contrast to the overall muted scene. A little soft? Shot at 1/13 of a second, were you using a tripod? The softness is an overall impression, but shows especially in the central red boat. I like the square format crop though.
Thanks for your comments guys, the shot was slightly pp'ed but still working my way round cs2. As for the question to whether i was using a tripod the answer is no, i usually have a monopod attatched to the camera just incase i need to steady the camera as in this shot.
Beautiful reflections. Personally I would have cropped the sky out just at the point where the brighter part joins the edge of the image on the right hand side. This would give a lot more impact to the boats and their reflections which are the nicest part of the image IMO.
I'm finding that my eye is drawn to good colour more than other photographic attributes - and this one definitely does it for me.
I was in your area for the last couple of weeks (Stockton) but I'm not familiar with this particular location? I'll need to visit regularly this year so I'd be interested to know where to find this.
