Boy in boat on the Nile - Michael Trask

Nice the water effect.

Very good composition and spot on colouring

Great water and super reflections.

Thank you Tanusree, Joseph and Thea. I remember approaching the reflections with some trepidation but, for once, they turned out not too bad. "Happy accident" perhaps!

Very nice Michael - great water and the composition works very well too!
