Wow I hope you didnt really buy this on ebay, lol, the picture is kind of dark, bland, no color anywhere, maybe it wouldve looked better in black and white.

Not a bad idea, but the execution is pretty low quality: low contrast and the branches are quite distracting.

IMO, this photo could probably use a lot more contrast. Also, if there had been any way to take the picture at such an angle so that that tree wasn't in the way, that might increase the impact of this shot. Good try though, and interesting idea. :)

Get the idea, which works fine, but the shot isn't coming across as dreamy to me, just washed out.

I like the composition of this alot. The grayness makes it very dreary and kinda bad-dreamlike.

Good shot. Would this be in Chatham? Try playing with the curves option to increase the contrast.

It does look like an Ebay nightmare. The photo looks like a poor snapshot, though. Colors are dull, branches obscuring the subject, composition does not flow for me. Sorry to have to be so harsh on it.

Very dull tone wise, could have done with a visit to the Levels or Curves tool to boost the tonal range, especially as this is bordering on a B&W and so extreme contrast is everything. The trees in the foreground obscure the boat, the birds are a distraction and for composition, could have done with placing the boat more to the right as it is facing towards to left and so creating empty space on the left for the boat to "move" into would have given you much better balance.

I don't know if it's intentional but the levels and exposure are all really out. The main subject is also largely obscured.

Im trying to figure it out, so you bought a boat on ebay, that is really crappy? Title not clear with picture.

Very low contrast probably won't help the scores. :( I like the idea and title though, and the crows are a nice touch for the bad dream.
