    The soft, muted colors are really nice as is the composition.

    Thanks Mike, the concept of foreground (rocks) subject (fishermen) and background (breakwater) is generally a good start to composition. I have also applied the rule of thirds to the subjects which seems to work for this shot.

    My understanding of the Rule of Thirds calls for the subject to be placed at least approximately where the horizontal and vertical lines that are one-third away from the edge of the frame intersect. In this case, the subjects are placed horizontally almost exactly in the middle. None of that detracts from your very nice image; I'm just making an observation that it doesn't seem to be an example of using the Rule of Thirds.

    You have me on a technicality there Mike as I have cropped a little off the top. The picture was taken using the rule but then cropped without considering it.
