I decided to interpet the challenge specifically as an odd numbered subject - not as an unusual subject. I may be penalized for it, but three is an odd number and I thought it was cool how these three sailboats were all lined up ready for a small regatta. The early morning light caught my eye and the low angle provided a bit of interesting perspective - i hope the voters agree. Figuring about 5.5-5.8....

Keep figuring low, and scoring high!

What a great perspective indeed, but the processing seems to seal the deal, for me at least.

I like the symmetry but overall the image doesn't hold my interest

Came back to bump this up. Real nice. I like the black and white, and the simple composition. Less is definitely more in this shot. 9

Nice tones, I feel that the trees bring down the composition 6
