Much depth in your composition, the rope leading the eye into the image is a delight. Light well managed, particularly how the sun is perceptible throught the first boat.

Could still be improved by some postprocessing IMO, the boat's hull lacks of contrast, but as is, already excellent.

Catching the sunrise/sunset at that perfect moment shining through the windows of the St. Joseph is wonderful. Add the pink of the clouds and you have a very surreal, yet subtle shot. The subtlness is such an opposite to the hard rust lines and obvious strength of the boats. I bet you get a wide range of scores on this.

Love the way the sun is caught in the corner of the window! I like the bigger to smaller lineup as well. Not as fond of the rock in the background, but I don't suppose you could move it. :-)

boats are so interesting - I am sure someone knows what all that stuff is attached to the masts... nicely done
