Perfect focus and clarity. A tranquil scene very nicely portrayed. In my view the 'Action' is the subtle pace of this boat and was probably refreshing in the challenge.

Nice sky, almost too peaceful and serene to convey action. I understand that the boat is moving... but... its really just a pretty sunset photo.

This is a nice serene scene, although I do see the slight ripples of the water behind the boat so there is some action too. The sunset is jsut enough to add a nice color and set the atmosphere. The only suggestion would be to crop a little off the water so the horizon line isnt directly in the middle, which would put more emphasis on the boat as well.

Nice, but I'm not really convinced it's an action shot.

Beautiful sky and reflections on the water. I'd like to have seen you come in tighter on the boat, which would also move the horizon off center.

No doubt, it´s a really great picture. I like the sunset and the siluette of the fishers, but this picture gives me a calm sensation, not action... so I´m sorry but I´m not sure it meets the challenge 100%. But, as it is a great picture... 5

I think this shot simply put, draws you right in as if you were sitting lakeside watching.

Beautiful shot. Makes me think of peaceful instead of action though.

The boat "Action" is too small a subject. Sunset seems to be primary in this shot.

Nicely composed, boat well placed. Would have liked more action

Brilliant shot here, the reflections in the water are great.

Don't get much of an action feeling though. Your title to me suggests a lazy night of fishing, the calm water doesn't show much going on.
