Re: Derelict boat

Losing the border will help the image breathe. Apart from that, the image itself is great as it is.

What do you think ?
I think that this border is rather messy and as it is close to the boat in places, the definition is starting to get lost. I would prefer more of a fade to white but from more of the background (you could blur it slightly to make the boat stand out from it). The white space is good though.

Re: Derelict boat

Well that image certainly floats my boat!
It's a fantastic image in B&W Alf and borderless is my preference, although I think you went a bit too wide with the white for my liking Chevvy.

I was "seeing it" more as an old fashioned small print in a wide mount and, maybe square too actually will try that at this rate I shall have to pay Alf for an image - as I am seeing this on the wall
