BUT, since I am hasty about posting this, I may be missing something. I would love to hear your points. Please let me know. Anyway, C&C's welcome....Thanks! Oh, and I have the WIP posted on my blog...linkie below.
Oh, it's 18x12"

I will certainly leave the actual critics to the more experienced on here, But I do have to say I was just captivated by the foreground water, you have done a remarkable job, going to go to your blog and enjoy, excellent.

This is awesome and the reflections are amazing! I feel like I am standing on the dock gazing into the water. Fabulous!

Absolutely beautiful and VERY well done. I love the reflections on the water from the sky which are also reflecting back up on to the hull of the boats. The dock has that well worn look, excellent job!!! I love it.
