This is a captivating image. I like the idea. I would have shot it from even more of an point of view from below looking up. The blown out whites distract me from the great line and power of the subject.

Somewhat overexposed on the highlights and low dynamic range overall. Nice shot of the backlit flag.

Its impressive ship and good compozition but its too much sunlight.

I like the grainy feel here - suitably moody, to add to the authoritative feel of the boat....I do feel that you shot a little too far into the sun on this one, the overexposure is a little distracting. 7.

The sky and it's reflection in the water make this very dramatic! 8

i like the composition, but am struggling with the execution. you could definitely use a lens hood to cut down on the lens flare (which is a major distraction). i know this was a tough shot to take and to process, especially trying to capture the detail that you did, without allowing too much blow out. all the same, i'll score this a 6 and wish you good luck!

This one will probably get picked on for the blown out sky on the right; however, I think it adds to the drama of the photo. I think this is a unique veiw on the challenge and a well taken photo. I am not sure I would have chosen black and white for this, but I still think it is great. 9.

The highlight on the right center is almost painfully bright. Thelines of the picture pull my eye right to the flag, but the flag is a bit indistinct.
