I love the comp. The little boat plays well with the position of the sun. This contrast in the clouds vs sky is nice. I love skys that give the feel of montion.

Congrats, and I really hope it stick.


Thanks for your comment. I used red filter when I took the shot and added some colours in post processing, which is allowed in basic editing. Thanks again.
