Your original shot is excellent! I was drawn specifically to the flowers and reflection in foreground and cropped to a more vertical to bring the sun, reflection, and oleander in line.

The oars are flawlessly synchronized, as the rowers are at "catch" postion, a split second when they've squared the blades and are about to drop the oar blades into the water.
