Thanks. It was close to sundown so the light was low and I did not want to blow the water or sky out. I guess I could have fixed it up in processing but it didn't look to bad from where I was seeing it. Maybe my monitor is much brighter? The light was strongly contrasted. Glad you like it
Totally agree with you about not editing the image. Gives a more realistic look. The theory that I had is that you made the picture in a not quite good hour. I say this because I suspect that there was a hill or something like that made a shade over the boats. Am I right?
