What makes the shot so stunningly beautiful is that warm amber/orange glow emanating out of the cloud cover. Those nice warm golden/orange tones are appealing for they compliment the idea of a nice, warm day at the beach. The silhouette of sailboat and the gleams of light playing upon the ocean surface are the two wonderful finishing touches that greatly increases the appeal of this photo composition. Beautifully composed and a lovely capture.

As much as I think my photo shouldve won (no bias) I couldnt accept first place with this shot up against mine. Not only is this a brilliant photo is fits the challenge perfectly. To me that counts for a lot. Taking a good photo is a lot easier than taking a great photo that is supposed to convey a message (in this case "All Alone"), and to have that message clearly shown without having to use a title or description to explain it.
Long story short you shouldve won.......then me second.
Keep it up mate!

Great color and a very striking image. Sailors are often alone and the expanse of empty ocean emphasizes this. The bright, beautiful sky definitely makes this photo convey solitude and the title reinforces this.

Simply stunning. I love the shapes and lines of this photo...and the colors!!

An outstanding image. The sailboat is perfectly placed. Overexposing the sky works with this image.

Very pretty...a bit of noise on the water...but otherwise very nice

Wow! This is a fantastic image. Has a wonderful solitude feeling, but in a positive light. Different from many of the other entries. I love the silhouette and the color and lighting are perfect. Very nicely done. I hope you make this available as a print. 10

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if it would have been more dramatic if the sailboak had been on the right shide of the photo. Almost like it was entering the great expanse. However the placement of the sailboat under the sunburst is perfection. Can keep the sail boat placed under the sunburst and flip it around in photshop. If you do and you like it let me know. 8

if this is real then I am envious. nice work

Very nice colors, a mood of awe. This will probably score really well, and it deserves to do so for at least it's visual merit. I'd only challenge you to move further away from cliche. ***as a side note, I rated yours and "Alone no more..." the same, though the images are almost totally different, almost opposites. I'm curious to see how you both place.

Okay, STUNNING. That is a beautiful shot. I love the way the ship sort of stands siloetted by the light (I think I misspelled that).

Good Points: A great shot on it's own right, nice lighting and great level horizon
Bad Points:bit to saturated. And although it won't effect my score, I think some DPC'ers will say it doesn't meet the challenge enough. (bah hunbugs) does to me though great shot. (would be more fitting in light challenge mind you)
Overall Score:7
