Mak this is a stunning shot! Absolutely love the B&W tones for it really calls attention to all the textures and the years that this boat wears tells a story of life being lived. For now this fisherman's boat lays calm, nestled in a sea of rolling hills. Though weathered it still looks seaworthy as it lies patiently waiting for the next adventure on open water. Wonderful work and congrats on the Red!!!

I like the subject and composition; maybe light the foreground a little more for better "pop"

Looks like she was a beauty in her time.

Lovely composition. One's eye is drawn along the boat, through the village, and off into the hills. But most of all I love the detail of the stones, the flaking paint, and the seaweed in the lower third of the image which taken together ground the boat in place. The seaweed over the stern and port gunnel suggest that she no longer floats at high tide. Altogether a lovely and intriguing image. Hope it ribbons. Thanks.
