As a kid, I was always told to frame the whole subject in the viewfinder. This time, I just broke the golden rule, but it was a deliberate experiment. As this tourist cruise boat made its way down the Yarra River in brilliant sunlight, I figured it would be fun to experiment. So I picked my spot carefully, allowed this trailing branch to obscure the vessel - and concentrated on the reflection instead. I thought I'd pick a nautical theme for International Talk Like A Pirate Day - but there were no peglegs, parrots or eye patches on view. Not even a Long John sliver. Sorry, me hearties.
