Another one...i know i could see things in it that i feel i want to change....and i did that already, but i have to let it go now before i keep "throwing the dice" again. 
 Actual painting I think is better than a photo of it.........always works that way, no matter how many years of photoshop and lightroom I've been using...just can't get it.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

THanks Mysti..................i did do a bit more after this of course...of course.   But i can see it improved it a little and put it away. Needed a touch more blue (darker too) in the light areas of the water...it worked.

WOW!  Beautiful colors and I really like the women on the boat.  I like your style; it seems your painting has an impressionistic touch to it. ~Liz

Thanks for the comments, i will take it that i should leave it alone now, right? hahah.        Honestly, i feel some things bother me about it yet, but that's always going to be the case in any painting.

Val, i got it out about 3 times today. I'm so careful though. I truly think that i improved some things a little more. I know enough to let it go now. Sooo careful, i just really look at accents mainly.
