good luck chicago... :O)

it looks a little low res. and chunky to me as well as it was maybe taken to far in sharpening....but hey there's the tour boat....lol

the sail boats are staggered really well..its almost as if the image would be better with out (my beloved) light house as part of the compostion...

bt i suspose it adds in it own way...would be cool with more popping colors....

I like all the sailboats, but find the ferry distracting. Otherwise, nice composition.

Very good picture. Lot of noise though. I will give you a 6

The lighthouse seems as interesting object of your picture but composition is bit too busy. Attention is splitted between too many object from which non is really the 'central'. Also capturing from long distance causes sometimes problems with focus.

The different kinds of watercraft and the addition of the lighthouse make this absoultely beautiful...great composition!

I love the composition, but it should more in focus.

This is such an odd looking photo. It looks like an illusion.

I like the scattered sails -

A little bit wider crop on the left, but the composition is fantastic...your timing was great with this.

Great lighthouse! The ferry seems small compared to the sailboats.

I recognize the location and have to say it is harder to photograph than you would think, it looks like you had trubble dowsizeing but that could also be because of a strong crop.
I like the idea but would like to see more of a horizon.

good luck
