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.

But good art requires an “unsettling factor,” something that causes a little bit of annoyance or distraction. That is precisely the reason I left it in the picture. In the workshop, I am presenting the same view with that shaft of light removed. I would be grateful to have your view on the photo I’ve posted, or the version in the ws?
