I really like the selective desat in this image, the blues really make this image pop. Perhaps a bit overtoned but cool none the lessI also like the feel of depth given by the composition.

pity about the lamp pole it is distracting in an otherwise good image

sometimes selective desat seems a bit too gimmicky - but it works pretty well here - i just wonder if the impact would have been better if the fifth boat in the shadows was lit a bit better

Is this selective desat legal in basic editing? Maybe you're using a Canon S3 or S5 with color selection? The boats really stand out.

Not a fan of such an intense shade of blue with all the other color removed. I admit it is odd looking which was probably the point. I had to look twice to see the fifth boat which kind of defeats the "odd" theme as the "even" number of boats is really the main subject of the photo.
