A very interesting, "Busy" shot, Marie.

It's almost like there're different locations merged into one.
The background for example is almost Amazonian or ancient Peruvian and something that you'd associate with the Incas.
The middle distance boats look like they belong in the harbour at Monaco, and the near distance boats with the brown waters lapping could be suited to a much colder region such as Iceland.
Very dramatic sky, which paints the scene beautifully.

I like your processing work here too, with the overall image lifted somewhat with those few sprinkles of light illuminating the orange buoys and that perfect little touch in the top right, where the light shines through the clouds and reflects off the church tower.

Very clever composition brought to life with some very clever processing.

Neat job,

Hi Marie,
Beautiful PP work in this harbor presentation. Such a dramatic appearance to this crowded little harbor. A spectacular sky and a lovely wave entering the beach. A very sharp image with impeccable details.

Hi Marie, definitely a fun shot to check out with all the things going on and the amount of detail. I love those clouds over the top though. Fiona

Hi Marie, I have a lovely time looking at your picture - there is soo much to take in - action on the water and a very interesting sky - the peaceful background with the buildings from another time ...
Very well done
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika
