Nice and simple with good clarity and bold colors. I may have shown some sand direct under the boat but I'm not sure, I would have to see it. -T

The boat is very much the focal point and the sky (negative space) does not create the WOW of the shot,, the red bouy does. IMO

Wow this is a nice shot. Compositionally I would have to say that the ship just a tad bit closer to one of the bottom corners would have been a bit more attractive to the eye. Your sky is wonderful. your colors are great. This is a strong shot.
The water is a mucky Blah, but that is not your fault. Looks like things are a bit stirred up out there. Wonderful job.

Negative space should have a purpose. This is negative space for the sake of the challenge.

It is a bit tight framed at the bottom of the boat... great colors!

that pink thing would be better off I think...

good luck in the challenge

The center-haters will rate you down a notch or two for the boat's position. But I think it is visually pleasing that way. It's not my kind of beach, but the boat makes it look good to me.

nice subject. Might work better if it was not centered along the bottom. Maybe just a bit to the left?

the subject is the wow of this image, not the surrounding area. nice shot though.

Such marvelous tones here! I'd like to see what would happen if the boat were farther to the right--more rule of thirds orientation. It might make the negative space speak even more loudly of the encompassing world the boat is in.
