I really like this picture, great composition!

Thanks. It's not quite great IMHO as I should have kept the boats clear of the top of the railing. Camera position a few inches higher and further forward would have been better.

Still a pretty decent shot. Now that I have used that excuse for a pretext for an alleged reason to start a conversation, I just wanted to go back to a conversation a few months old - about D60 and other new technology wonders, if I may... A big downside to that camera, as it turns out, is that it doesn't have focus microadjustment and may have to go to Canon with the lenses for calibration. Oh well. One of the benefits of mirrorless cameras is that focusing takes place right on the imaging sensor, and is pretty much guaranteed to be spot on. Not so with DSLRs (which have many other benefits, to be sure).

S.K. Formerly proud owner of a D60.

p.s. I don't mind the boats all that much. For some reason the eye stays on the benches and on the reflection, goes up to the street lamp and back to the reflection and the leaves floating in the puddle. I didn't even see the boats until I read your comment - they're largely and effectively invisible behind that railing. Just trying to cram a few things into one comment.
