It works well as a documentary shot of the place. If you wanted something more fine arty, then losing the top and concentrating on the colorful houses and their reflections might have worked better.

Sometimes the light's just not soft, Riaan, and there's not much you can do about it. Here in Colorado it's very, very unusual to have soft light. Probably happens two or three times a year. The altitude in Manitou Springs is part of my problem: just short of seven thousand feet.

It's a beautiful tourist snapshot, Jeremy, and I agree with Slobodan. (See, sometimes that happens.)

I count the shot as a success, then!

Slobodan, you converted Russ's tourist snap into something good. Why not mine? (That's a rhetorical question, by the way; I suspect I might not like the answer.)

That's exactly where I would have gone, following Slobodan's suggestion, of course.

Jeremy, I actually prefer your shot to Slobodan's crop.  It seems more natural, and the cropped version makes the image try to be something it isn't. 

That said, if you really wanted to come over all fine-arty then you would have taken it on the other side of the harbour closer to the houses, and would have focussed on some quirky detail or amusing local.  But that wasn't the shot you took.  The shot you did take is not at all fine arty, just a really good documentary shot and nothing wrong with that.

Just to clarify: my initial advice was not meant to be cropping, but for the shooting stage. Since I can not re-shoot, I could only crop what was available. My crop was also done half-jokingly (noticed the title?) :)

I did, once my eyes adjusted to the colours and stopped hurting!
