Using digital, I get used to either edge-to-edge crispness or total crap.
Thus, I was kind of surprised to see the relative softness in the
background of the first image.

I like the composition in the second, with the gull behind the boat. The
tonal range in that is good, too - like an example in a Zone System
explainer.

thanks a lot for the feedback. back in the day I took a couple of good
shots. Here is exactly the same photograph taken with a digital camera
so you can make direct comparisons.
