This is really the only boat I know of that has any photographic quality. I have shot it several times before and done well with it each time. Hopfully the sepia will make it enough different. I am sitting on a 6.7 or so on Friday morning and I am totally pleased with that. Doubt it will crack top 20 as there are some stunner images out there. But a continuation of my 6+ streak is what I consider the biggest accomplishment.

Oh yes - and a shout out to Karmat! ;)

Man, you nailed this one. Doubting Timothy ... you got a #16 out of this one that you thought wouldn't crack the 20! See you did mighty mighty fine.

I agree. I love seeing befores and afters. They are so educational for the eye! This one is a wonderful example!

This is a very impressive edit. The sepia tone works VERY well, and I really like the gradient or darkening in the sky. FYI, I voted this WAY higher than a 6.5

I loved this image on first sight. The sepia toning fits perfectly and I especially like the rowing boat tethered to the ship. GREAT work, Tim.

Awesome image, love the detail & the fact you used the full frame. If there is one thing I would consider changing is the border, slimmer and maybe a beige the white seems a bit to strong for this image. Great work!

I'm just not into the brown-sepia like thing. It's a very crisp shot and I'll go with an 8.

Like the dingy leading into the larger boat. Didn't keep my interest toolong only because couldn't see much of the deatil-only the hull. Maybe the deck and sail masts would have kept me looking longer. Very nice photo though...IMHO/6

The inclusion of the small boat gives a great sense of scale to the larger boat. I really like the processing you used. Very well done.

I like the use of sepia here and the angle of the shot

great idea to go sepia here...it goes well with the picture. I expect this to be on the front page. 8

Good idea but.... angle and processing are not really to my taste.

Good composition although seems tilted a bit. Could just be me though. I really like that little boat tied onto the big one.

Processing lends itself to the title very well! Has a feel of a vintage maritime postcard! *7*

Fantastic shot, I really like how you have to be in the water to actually take it.
