I know its all of a personal choice re images, both this one and the workshop have much merit each(theres a cop out) but if you want a vote, i'll choose the workshop version only by a whisker.
That aside i'll talk on this version.
You have enhanced the age of these boats well, we see the discolouration and rotten panels clearly. The shadows of the boats reflecting in the water adds much depth to the scene, the hazy landscape yonder adds to the mood and the history of the area. Cropping the sky was a good idea, all too often I tend to leave skys in and wish I hadn't.
All in all its an image i like , i like the feel and the sense of loss of these boats, an era of once was, has now gone. tfs

Love the light in this shot, Joy!
Great focus and perfect POV with superb exposure and clarity on this boat.
The colors are original and DOF is excellent.

A lovely image indeed. As for the two images, they are difficult to choose from, I like the colours and the details of the boats in the HDR but the BG has become a wee bit too dark for my liking.

Hello Joy, I definitely pick this image. The one with the filters seems unnatural to me and the other one, as you say, a little too dark. For me, this image has just the right intensity and the composition is perfect either way. Well done.

quels épaves de bateaux, de tout tout vieux usés par le temps et comme il se suivent superbe quel rendu sur le bois de la coque avec la vue en fond une merveille.
Bravo et amitié

Hi Joy, I like this version more, the only thing about the ws versionis the light in the water.They look like they have been there forever in this one. Fiona

You're capturing well this dcspe by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see three old boats lying the shore, calm lake and the highland with the loose slope in behind. The light is managed well, so it's impressive in shadow/highlight of water surface. And, thick cloud covering the sky draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image.

Beauty of time and sea mood. Fine sharpness and perspective, ..i like this version ...the tonalities and luminosity is more real and appelative.
What a great find Joy,you have indeed done the subject proud.
