    Hi
    If the picture is about the two sailboats they are lost in the background. The small buildings on the right would make a nice picture. Try to decide what is important to you and focus on that. Maybe several pictures would be better than just one. This looks like a very nice place to spend a day just shooting.

    Here lies the dangers of telephoto compression. Your eyes see an uncompressed scene, whereas the camera has no choice but to squish it all into a single space. I am sure, when you were looking at this scene through the viewfinder, you saw a nice separation between the sailboats and the background even though the lens was compressing the scene. What you didn't see was the f:/16-22 focal length taking it all in. I probably would have used a much shallower depth of field, say 4-5.6, focusing on the sailboats and letting the background go to fuzzy.

    Yes, too much there, Jim; as Tim and Chris mentioned.

    Worth trying a crop though. Perhaps try a 5 x 4 ratio. One scene of both boats and part of the background then another with just the bigger boat and more of the right side quay area.

    I think there is a good photo to be had here; in fact, both crops might work well.
