As Jer says, never saw a boat/harbor scene that I didn't like. Looks good to me but, then these are tired old eyes. TFS... Cliff

I see what you mean about the high iso Dave, but others shoot a lot higher with the K5 with great results. I keep mine set much lower though. Nice shot here.

Beautiful shot. I think the K5 does a great job at high iso... it is such a great shot... you could probably apply some noise reduction in your pp if it bothers you at all. Another trick is to smooth out the sky if you have that tool... awesome location, and a great composition too!
