Wow I love this photo.

Only things that I would think to change would be that things don't seem incredibly sharp. I'm not sure if this photo was planned or you just walked by it. You have a relatively low shutter speed so handheld the camera could blur things up a bit. Other than that, I really think this photo is fabulous. Also, I'm sorry if I'm saying things you already know. Nice job on this!

Thx alot 4 your comment. It do appreciate it.
The photo was actually taken with a tripod and is razor sharp in original. But I have lowered Clarity in Lightroom quite dramatically to get a shadowy, hazy feeling in the picture, almost like an old oil painting.

I thought that might be the case. Looks great either way.

Pretty cool shot, well done!
Since this is in the critique section: maybe if you make the crop even tighter. Remove some of the bottom right corner, to really bring the focus to the subject. Or even change the aspect ratio (to 4:3?) and just remove the bottom part. But you did well with the layers, the colours. Really feels like a painting, and fits the content (ship, river) very well

I love the dreamy haze and colors on this. Like there was frost on the lens.
