[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken at Newlyn Harbour which is on the Cornish coast next to the town of Penzance. Newlyn is an old fishing port with a large harbour full of interesting colours and textures to photograph. Much fresh fish is caught in the surrounding waters and daily life carries on here regardless of the mass tourism of the surrounding areas.

Hello Joy - a nice scene here with the extra element of the people working down below; really adds a sense of scale!

For me though the image is a little soft in the centre of the shot. You could also post at 800 pixels so we can all appreciate the photo better.

I'm surprised out of the 127 visits so far, only one critique (two including this one)

This is a nice shot Joy,
it's got a good story behind it, and an unusual aspect behind it in as much as the boats out of the water adding a different interest immediatley.
The guys' ultra bright trousers waterproof add an instant splash of concentrated colour as well as scale to the shot too.

I have to agree with DAvid's coment about being a little soft, but i reckon it's fixable relativley easily on the full sized image.
I've posted a workshop with a few tips on how i managed the re-work.
Problem is with workshops on such small scale images is, you can actually have an adverse effect on what it is you're trying to achieve.

Hope it works for you,
