    Hi everyone, I'd welcome comments on the 2 images below. These were taken on a Pen E-P2 with Oly 9-18mm and Panny 45-200

    Thanks

    I used to go out with a girl from Leigh ... I find the second one a bit jangly, but the first one is nice ... I'd have cropped foreground and RHS by about 10% , but then I crop things weirdly anyway

    I like them both--the one on the left is fairly quiet, but is more interesting that the usual sunbeam shot, and the composition and colors of the one on the right are great.

    I guess I will never understand composition :(

    To me, the one on the right looks overly "busy" and unbalanced with that empty slice on the right

    The one on the left is stunning.

    So do these boats get trapped and grounded during low tide?

    Thanks for the comments.

    TC - the tide goes out quite a way at Southend/Leigh. Just to the right of the boats there is a channel which always has water in - at low tide there's a lot of mud so all the boats are grounded.
