Thanks so much, karma. Come to think of it, I may agree about the harshness. :)

Compositionally, this is a wonderfully done picture. It has a good balance from top to bottom, as well as from left to right. You don't have a lot of foreground, and that helps to emphasize the strong verticals of the masts (right word?) and the nice sunset.

Technically, I also think it is well done. The colors are warm and rich, and the focus is very good. What might have hurt a bit is monitors that are a bit dark. On mine, I can the snow, etc. but it could easily be seen as a silhouette which takes away the harshness of it.

Also, while it is a well done picture, and I think it does fit the challenge, (I scored it a 7, initially) I can't help but wonder if it didn't look "harsh" enough for some people. It is a beautiful sunset/rise and doesn't scream "harsh," I think.

Nice concept, the contrast is just a bit overdone though I think, the sky seems to be the focus and I would have liked this better if the snowed in boats were a bit highlighted by the contrast/brightness
