Well, here goes my take on this shot:
- I like the light rays on the ship but like the little boat on the left, too (which took me a short while to notice). I think cropping so that it looks like a panorama emphasizes that relationship between the two ships (tiny vs huge) and maybe how unfair life is (the sun shining only on the already privileged), and makes it easier to notice the little one;
- One other reason to crop is that the blue part of the sky kept drawing my eyes to it, as Freelancer said, so I got rid of it;
- I agree with Z on the green/magenta balance;
- I tried to overexpose the ship a bit, even though it's a JPEG and detail is not expected to come up by doing so.
Have I gone too far?
