A little heavy on the blur, maybe half it so you can make out a little more detail surrounding the boats you had selected. Always a big fan of boat style photos, so much to keep the eye moving around, this feels a little pigeonholed.

Wish the DOF was more towards the background, I know what you're going for but the poles in the foreground being in focus is pulling me there rather than the waves crashing which I know seems to be the focal point. 7.5/10

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

The colors are beautiful, but the flower is not sharp and the bee detracts from rather than adds to the photo. Sorry. 6/10.

I can't really see any subject, the photo has my eyes dancing all over the picture. Plus it looks like the wrong time of the day for that area, judging by the blown-out leaf and lack of shadows it must have been the middle of the day. If possible go back at different times of the day, it might just create the shot you had in mind when you took this one.

Here's mine!!

Ok... I usually like to go back and look at my stuff, weeks if not months after I have shot it and look at it with fresher eye.... and here is my take looking at this image after a few weeks.... you really needed a lower f stop to make this image really pop and stand out. The background is still intact enough that it draws from, and fails to fully isolate the subject. That said, I am a shapes and textures kind of person, and almost all my stuff ends up B/W... do take that into consideration. Also a little more space handle side - not much - but decrowd the image a bit. To my eye, its just a little tight.

Otherwise, nice capture. It took me this long to think of stuff.... so there is that. Cheers.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

I see no rating! As previously said, it is a pity that the background is a little busy. Wider aperture would’ve benefited the shot. Good colors, good light. 6.5/10
