*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting image that contributes to the open nature of this challenge.

I get to comment once more on your image! The fishing boats are interesting especially if they are not a familiar type to the viewer as indeed they are not to me. The composition itself lacks impact, everything is placed quite centrally without much thought to the rule of thirds or any other aid that would have given it more impact.

I am rarely enthused by selective desat and this is no exception, apart from the question why at all but why just one boat why not all three? I think this would have been far better to leave all three in mono and concentrate on getting the best out of the mono tones within the image. I like the background detail but the sky is so boring and so much of it you could have taken most of it out and replaced it with foreground water for a much more interesting result.

Thanks for your submission, apologies for the delayed critique, Sid

Perhaps a better choice of viewpoint with the boats forming a diagonal would have improved this but the light is not at its best for you here, good luck

I'm not a fan of the tones; looks like selective desaturation but the day looks like it was pretty hazy already?
