When you have been paddling a kayak all day every day for 4 days, you just have to sit there...

Focus isn't perfect (a general sharpen would benefit) but this second one is an excellent composition

Took this picture while in my own boat with a Canon S1 in an underwater housing. No editing here, just dumb luck.

Another 'Welcome' to the Forum
I have accepted your invitation to edit your image - and here's my modfication
i- Using Levels command I have tightened the RGB curves and achieved a different overall effect;
ii- I have used 'auto-sharpen' to try to make it appear a bit clearer, and
iii- I have dropped it slightly in size to differentiate it from the original image

Hope this is okay ,,,, thoughts?

Glad you like the tweaking
in your profile you state "photo editing experience = beginner" .... and we all were in the beginning!
Q- what if any photo editing software have you got? for fine tuning the ex-camera images to bring them up as has been done above?

I am slowly learning to use the basic stuff in GIMP. I now shoot in RAW, but this photo was taken a few years ago at 8 mp in JPEG and transferred from computer to computer several times before I actually posted it here.
