My friend jsas wrote a poem for this image:

"The Jolly Boat"

Take a trip on the jolly boat
cast your cares where serenity floats
the silent sways rock you to sleep
as wind and waves your company keeps.

With the stillness of the calming day
let the warming sun melt stress away
the morning wakes the sea alive
explore the wonders with a thrilling dive.

You hear the call of a distant land
your time of return is close at hand
so you sail along the friendly coast
as you drift and dream on the jolly boat.

Very eloquently composed, has a simple and old fashioned feel. In my favorites :)

This effect almost gives it the look of a quick sketch. I think it would probably be a good photo either more "realistic" or kept as is...I would like it either way. I think your crop and positioning of the boat and horizon on this are perfect.

I adore this shot. I think the high key/black and white works perfectly. I like the angle of the boat, not a full side, just partial. One of my favorites of yours. Into my favorites

Tagged! Really great composition and effect. B/W combined with high contrast works really well. Love the way everything fades into the edges. There is a slight yellow line at the bottom of the pic though, and an even smaller one at the top (maybe it is my monitor). Very peaceful.

Very nice shot. I like the way the white fades into the sides - nice high key.

Probably my fav in your whole portfolio. I really like the high key. The border also works here. I like everything about it.

Gorgeous! I love these types of shots. In a challenge, I probably would've given this a 10, whether it met the challenge or not. :) Great shot!

Basically you could shoot anything with high contrast and light background with spot metering. I think.

This is a great photo. I love the technique used to obtain such a dramatic effect. It is very surreal. Nice work.

Looks like you have a pretty good technique going already. This is very effective within this frame.

I am a big fan of High Key photos, that is well known, but I don't think that it works for this photo. Not for me anyway. Sailboats in the water are so beautiful to me, the thought of blowing the contrast out seems almost sinful.

This is considered a 'high key' shot, right? I like it. Fits the image very well IMO. Composed smartly also. Nice photo.
