Sunny at the Cove

I know I have posted many Peggy's Cove shots over the years but every time I visit this place the 'props' are always changing or moving around. The backgrounds are always the same but the foregrounds are always changing if you get my drift. The two red boats in the foreground caught my eye but the junk placed in front was unfortunate. P&S compact. Thanks.;-)

You used the term “junk” before I could mention it. If the junk is unfortunate there’s no
reason to include it in the composition unless you’re a first time tourist which you’re not.
There has to be a way around it. If not, don’t click. Your bird on a rock fits the
definition of minimalism. Try to bring the minimalist view to some of your harbor scenes
so you can skip “unfortunate.”

One can crop this image to eliminate much of what you call junk in the foreground if so desired and still retain a sense of the two red boats, the reflective nature of the water, and the lone blue boat in the harbour. On the other hand retaining the foreground elements anchored the image for me allowing all the other elements of the image (boats, reflections and the distant cloudy sky) to set up the maritime feel of Peggy's Cove.
