Wondeful colours. The composition and perspective are also very good.

I think that recropping to remove the post and shrubs in the foreground would greatly help. They don't add to the image and I actually find them distracting. The prow of the boat on the right could also be cropped out, or if you want to keep that width, clone it out to clean up that side.

Very little noise for this type of shot. I do find myself wishing the boats were a little more distinct.

I hope this helps.

Many of the comments here say that this image didn't meet the criteria for a 'Still Life'. And while agree with them if using the most traditional arts definition of the term, I was going for a stretch on the theme -- that the scene was still. Anyway, I tried. Thanks to those who liked my image anyway!!

NIce photo, but not a still life.

I really LOVE the tones here. The purples and reds and pinks are gorgeous! Love the silhouettes of the boats. All things said, I don't think that this qualifies as a still life so I can't score as high as I would with no theme involved.

Beautiful. Maybe a yellow filter could've been applied, but I can't give this less than a 10.

Very nice composition. Beautiful sunset. Very unique colors. Love how the boats are arranged. The depth of field is also very nice. Enjoy the mountains in the background. "10"

nice scenic....but it is a scenic and there is really no misconstruing that it is not a scenic.....you might have gotten away with one boat but not the entire fleet.

Sorry for the comment yesterday, I had a bad day and lashed out at everyone. I like your image, nice use of color, good composition DOF and all that. Would like to see more dramatic clouds but that's not in your control. However just because it's a nice picture does not make it a still life. It would go nicely under a lighting, sunset, water, or even a landscape challenge but it's not a still life.

this is a scenic, not a still life, imho.

Very nice landscape image. I really like the color, it makes the image seem peaceful and surreal. The light and composition are very pleasing as well.
