yeah, i feel the boats are just a bit too much for this nice shot. But, to fix that just bring up the brightness on them a bit so then dont end up as a big, black foreground. Shot looks way better.

Bud, CONGRATULATIONS on this fantastic image -- and front page finish! I fell in love with it the minute I saw it in the challenge. I'm so glad the voters agreed with me how awesome it is!

Good work Bud. I'd like to see a version where you bring out a smidge more texture and color in the boats.

Definitely conveys a sense of calm, though a more placid surface would help say "still." I like your composition especially; I wish the boats were lighter to show off their colors (something you could maybe fix with PP outside of the challenge).

Really like this shot, the warmth of the colors on the boats, the lighting, and nice job technically on capturing the shadow detail in the boats. I also like the repeating shapes of wedges (clouds, land groups, bushes, boats). From a compostion standpoint I feel the boats are a bit overwhelming for the entire picture if you are looking at this as a landscape, if it is really about the boats then a crop on sky and midground bushes may have helped. Overall the composition is just not as balanced as it could be. Also needs a bit of border patrol, :-)

This is a very good shot my thoughts of course are just some suggestions, you've done a very nice job here. 8

Great. Stillness and beauty -- and not over-saturated.

really nice shot, would be classic if you point the boats toward the setting sun.......

I like this composition, but the boats seem slightly underexposed. It would be good if the shadows had a bit more detail. I nice, still shot, though.

I love this photo! I don't know what it is about having a canoe in a water photo that just bumps up the appeal so much, but it really does. Great job.
