Congrats on your ribbon and bringing to the DPC community a lovely image of the old wooden boat way of life which was so common 100 years ago!

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Okay, no offense but I seem to keep pulling the ribbon shots, LOL There is nothing wrong with this shot, LOL

Okay, I'll be serious now.

I love this shot, it's calm, peaceful and you would, without a doubt find it on a beach. The exposure time on this is perfect and looking at your outtakes, you choose well.

I really can't find anything wrong with this shot, it's beautiful. I'm sorry, I wish I could offer more!

I hope my comments help and Good Luck in future Challenges!

Deannda

This is a crisp image fencing off the dilapidated versus the active city life way off in the distance. Great color sky to accent the foreground. A winner by all means. Congratulations on your Yellow.

Darn! Actually thought about taking a picture of the same boat for my entry as I live less than 5 minutes drive away but I have tried it before and didn´t really find any interesting angle to shoot it from so I went for Grotta instead (20 minutes drive) Stupid me! Still don´t really think this is an interesting angle, have tried it but fortunately the voters disagreed :) Congrats!

The water looks like virgin ice. Lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2006 02:31:27 PM
Great job! I love this pic, the agedness of the boat. I just wish there was a little more definition to the water, it just seems to be lost. It could equally be floating on a cloud as it is sitting in water, and I'd like to see that a little more clarified. Maybe just overprocessed. The sky color is pretty though.

good colour range
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2006 05:50:36 AM
i wish you had taken a slightly higher vintage point so that the wrecked boat wouldn't intrude this much over the horizon. But it's a very pretty shot nonetheless.

07/22/2006 07:21:47 PM
great shot. i would have liked to see more of the boat and a little less of the water
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2006 05:07:49 PM
Great! What'd you do with the water. Lighting and old boat work very well together. 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2006 10:18:29 PM
Lovely silky look to the water and a great subject with the boat. A little dark to the left hand side, but a great moody shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2006 07:33:07 PM
I like this a lot. The only minor point that detracts, is the background to the left. Some more cropping (is that allowed?) would have put it right up there for me - Good work

Þetta er skemmtilegur bátur. Flott hvernig sjórinn er. Það er munur eftir að vegurinn var lagður þangað, þannig að maður lokast ekki lengur inni á flóði :-)

Nice water blur and nice detail on boat. Like the peachy sky contrasted with sagey water.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/19/2006 01:05:08 AM
This is beautiful. The softness and natural color in the landscape really work well to bring out the textures in the boat. What a great find. 9

I can't believe how still the water is, and that incredible color you managed. Great photo.
