These are model boats on a pond that I captured by chance early on a foggy morning. Just happened to have my Canon G10 in the car. Cropped image and cloned out some debris in the water. Added some saturation and sharpened, then converted to jpeg.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations on your top ten finish for an excellent shot that fulfils the challenge well.

You're absolutely right, they are very well built models that on first glance are so convincing they are easily mistaken for the real thing, even with closer inspection they are still very plausible. The only give away is their proximity to each other they would be much further apart if they really were freely at anchor.

Having the landscape behind adds very effectively to the illusion of reality and together with the mist it also adds atmosphere to the image. I love the reflections and the slight rippling of the surface this again contributes to the overall result. Your exposure is good with detail throughout. Your attention to detail in cloning out unwanted debris has paid off we have an end result that we can concentrate and appreciate without unwanted distractions.

A very pleasing image deserving of its high placing, well done, Sid
