Your Photo: Our Critique

Kevin Graves submitted this image taken with a Nikon D80, with and exposure of 1/160sec at f/9, ISO 400. This is a wonderful image, the colors have been saturated but are still very realistic. The composition has great lines and the detail adds character to the image. My one nitpick is that boat in the left bottom corner has been just cut off. The same boat creates a great lead in line taking the viewer’s eye straight into the image. The light is even and the exposure is spot on.
