Pretty extreme crop. Longish exposure with moving ripples created most of the softness. 2 pixels of gaussian then a touch of USM softened it up a little more. Colors are pretty realistic, all in all; but I used Selective color, hue/sat, AND color balance adjustment layers, all in small amounts, to fine tune it. Ran a little neat image, Resized and saved for web.

You need to make sure the boat is in focus.

Beautiful effect of interlocking, snakes-skin-line ripples enhanced by the soft focus. Lovely colours. 8.

The ripples on the water look terrific; the boat could be a little brighter or sharper.
