Nice shot. I'm gonna be honest and say I'm not sure if the girl works in the shot or not. My gut says it would have been more mysterious to just have the viewer focusing on the ironworks, wondering what it is. But I really like the contrast of the sky and sea and the boat against it.

I think I would have liked this better without the woman in it. The shape is very interesting and would have held up on it's own.

This is a very strong and powerfull image. The lines from the "boat frame?" and very comanding. I like lots of long and gracefull lines in a photo. This is somthing you definately accomplished. There are only 2 things I don't like in this photo. The first is that the womans pants blend into the background. This gives me an impression of a floating torso. The other think I don't care for is a matter of personal taste. I feel I would have liked for the boat frame to be a little darker, giving it a stronger Silhouette . Great shot one of my top 10 picks of the challenge.

Good shot, excellent tones and it´s an interesting subject but then this isn´t a wow shot either. To nitpick I think she could have been in a better pose, her hand on her face pretty much looks like she is scratching or something like that, anyway an unflattering pose IMO. 7

Very cool image and interesting lines, though the girl looks like she's scratching at her face.

Interesting. I like the perspective. The model some how adds something to this, but the position seems awkward. Oh and the title needs some work. Nice photo altogether. 6
