Hmm, I'm going to have to say from the outset Steve that not only does the the RH half of the image look a bit weird (possibly slower shutter speed?) but it just doesn't 'fit' with the LH side - but just my opinion of course. So, with that in mind, with a square crop from the LH edge, the image resized to say, 1250px, you have a potentially cracking shot that just needs the crane support column/jetty piles pulling upright to get it spot-on. The square crop suits the image perfectly, there is some super detail in the pipe-laying boat; the remaining sky is great and you have smashing reflections. I can't decide whether the mooring rope should stay in or not but either way, it becomes a top-notch image. Very well done indeed sir! Incidentally, the Maritime Traffic website says she is currently berthed in Leith harbour

Steve, I do feel that although I can understand your wanting a wide vista, your picture is solely in the LHS. I would have to therefore perhaps just use the picture which you took of that side and make a nice composition of it. Being very interested in what is going on in terms of pipe laying, that picture may help me more in that regard.

A nice try Steve but just gotta agree with the chaps above, especially Keith.
Certainly worth another edit with those comments in mind, look forward to seeing it

Good idea, Steve, but I have to agree with the Keith. All the interest is to the left side of the image and I'd love see more of that ship.

Late with comment, and the re-edit has now been posted, but would tend to agree with the comments about the RH side of the image.
