Finally got around to getting the steamboat Minnehaha! It is a little slower than most of the things I have been shooting lately :lol:

It looks new! A little higher or lower in the frame would be more dynamic.

You should use a slower shutter speed to blur the background when panning. ;)

I ldo like the colours but they are too cental in the frame.More sky or more water would give more impact.I would prefer more sky.

Good points, I get stuck in the center of the frame and really, really sharp photo style.

Here is a different edit;

I got a chuckle about the lower shutter speed, panning this bad-boy would be about 2 seconds to blur the background. This is worse than when I tried to pan a Zamboni

Nice shots. It looks like a Lego boat to me for some reason.
