Is that a cruise ship in the water? This is a great view and wonderful crop. I like the way the steps lead down.

Wow - looks so pretty and peaceful. I like the sprawling view. The boat in the background adds interest and gives concept of spacial distance. Good morning light and colors.

Nice one here but may be a little over sharpened around the rock formation with some halos..
