Lovely spot. The popped colour is quite effective, but I'd prefer the straight mono conversion here, I think. Very good composition and light.

Best wishes,

Nice shot. I'm not usually a fan of colour popping but this is pretty good

It is well done, stands out, but can't help thinking that the colour pop it is just a little bit cheesy . I agree with Andrew that straight mono might have been better, particularly if it shows the texture on those boats.

Good shot, but vote another for the straight mono.
