This coastguard boat was tasked with patrolling between our cruiseship and the coastline, to ensure no other watercraft got in the way of the floating behemoth. It had to chase down several overly-excited jetskis and at least one wayward tourist boat in the short distance between the pier and the entrance of the harbour.

Processing: Lots of adjustment layers in Macphun Luminar (along with probably a touch too much vignette), followed by crop/resize/sharpen in theGIMP.

Hello from the critique club

An interestng image that meets the challenge well.

I like your high viewpoint and the diagonal you have chosen to shoot it from it makes for a more dynamic image. The wash indicates that the boat is travelling at some speed again helping the dynamic tension. There are a couple of things that let it down for me, 1, the vignetting in the corners and 2, it feels over-saturated. Its possible that these are the genuine colours but if that is the case I would have been tempted to apply a little desalt to make it look more natural. Thanks for your entry Manic.

Exciting action shot. Is that a machine gun in the bow?
