|A very good image, shot from an angle that accents that it is a landmark to be looked up at as well as looked upon. While I'm sure you could have taken the image from an angle that displays it's fate more clearly -- I like this perspective as it clearly shows the sea-worth vessal it once was.
This is accented by the rest of the shot. The out of focus grass in front brings to mind a rolling sea that compliments the angle nicely. However, I am of mixed feelings about the sky. I tend to agree with the commentor below -- the sky is a bit over-powering for the muted tones of the main subject. But at the same time, while lowering the saturation of he blues (I tried it) gives a more pleasingly even tone over the entire image, it also shifts the image away from a testament to what the ship once was. With the sky as it is, the sensation of what once was is much stronger.
The only real downside for me is the general softness of the image. This is in disagreement with the brightness of the sky and the general feeling of the shot. You state you did sharpen, but as you did so in the middle of your workflow I wonder if resizing didn't steal some of the sharpness from you. If so, an extra sharpening after resizing would have brought it back.
