    a really interesting shot. the way you’ve captured the muted background – it looks like a painting – and it contrasts so well with the sharper images of the boats. lovely

  • Thanks, Deb! I spent two days there, including overnight on a boat, and the weather was this blah all the time. I was really unhappy at the time, but it turns out that I got quite a few moody shots that are different from your usual clear water, blue skies tropical shot. I’ll be uploading more soon. :)
