LD. I like the third one best, though I'd add some shadowing to make the contrast a bit better.

Do you do much post-processing? Cropping/adding contrast/color/brightness etc.?

I rather enjoy making a mundane picture POP. The built-in editing portion of even Google Photos is fun to mess around with.

Rich, other than being cropped the 2nd & 3rd pic’s are unedited from an iPhone. I’m not very proficient, so I try to take a lot of photos and hope that one or two come out OK. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. I need to put photo editing on my list of things to learn more about.

The 3rd pic is one I took with my iPhone from a ferryboat on Lake Como, It. It was a very hazy day. There were a lot of small boats out and I saw a lot of rods in the water. According to what I read there are trout, pike, walleye, and you will be happy to know also LMB, though apparently they are rarely caught. Not sure why, but here is a challenge for you if you are in Northern Italy. Haha.

BTW, the cruise ship photo was tongue in cheek because of the “name” on the side of the big tin boat.

Here is another Lake Como pic:

I like messing around with my pictures. Mostly, I just add Brightness and/or Contrast. Of course, cropping the non-essentials out of a background can make or break a good picture.

On my Chromebook, they automatically include a free PIXLR online photo editor. It is far more capable than I am. I probably only use 5% of its abilities, but the editing process often helps a lot.

Hope you don't mind. I simply added Contrast and reduced Brightness.
regards, Rich

TheLastCall.....Neat shot. Are you shipping out? Are you in the Navy?

LDUBS...Duhhh... I just made the "Tinboat" picture much bigger and I see what you did!!! Neat. I wonder how many will catch it? Especially our esteemed leader! You do know how to photo-edit.

Rich, the adjusted photo is fantastic. OK, now I definitely need to look at this. My MacBook has photo editing tools so I should be good to go. As long as there is a reset button I got nothing to lose. Haha.

Re reset....the single most important thing is to Save your adjusted photo under a slightly different name. If it was ... xyz12345.jpg...when I change it, I would save the new one as ... xyz12345A.jpg.

That way, you always have the original and the adjusted copy, too.

p.s. start out messing with some shots you already have, but which weren't the best that you took that day
