This is such a wonderful capture! I love the sky and the detail on the boat.

Love the poit of view, awsome colors, terrific sharpness really brings out the texture. Very well done. Bumping Up.

I originally scored your photo at 9. On second look I can't find any reason why I wouldn't give it a 10. So, 10 it is.

That fill flash / reflector is almost a bit much, giving it a surreal quality. Bur OTOH, how else could you have brought out all those wonderful textures and colours, that really make the picture? I feel mesmerized. Thumbs up!

Nice impact and POV, good colors, maybe a little too much vignetting in the upper right corner. Well done.

seems to be a glow around the boat? better control with your masking or a little less tone mapping, its a shame because it is a nice photo. The polarizer? created a nice blue pop and some interestesting clouds

A bit over processed for me. For me and the whole HDR/processing stuff, my feeling is this...if you are going to do it, do it to the extent that you create something totally unexpected. I would exptect to see a rusted wreck with brown, red and algae. I would not exptect to see a rusted wreck shown in sublte colors (see my point?) I guess my feeling is really summed up this way...photography is 95% talent, 5% luck. Digital photograpy is 95% talent, 5% luck and an additionl 50% creativity, reserve the majority of the creativity for taking the talent into the art.

This shot shows a huge amount of talent, without all of the editing. I would love to see it as it was before you started "playing" with it.

I would consider cropping on the left so that the boat just kisses the edge of the shot. You've almost got it, but I still see some blue at the top.

Ah, the old rusty ship on a bluesky day. I like it, but the nose connecting into something over my head makes for an intense feeling of being there.

A very interesting subject. The colors and lighting is good. I like how the texture and color of the boat appears allthough it is the shady side. IMO the cropping is too tight on the left side.

Very nice of the clouds to form such a lovely framing! Great detail on the hull.

Impressive rust! Generally like the perspective but kind of wish you hadn't cut off the bits on the left.

Wow, what a ship! Great processing...the crop/framing may be a wee bit tight, tho

Dramatic processing, very nice. I sort of wish I could see all of the boat and that the horizon wasn't tilted, but that's just nit-picking.

I wish you did not crop so tight & showed more of the wonderful sky. 6

great textures here, maybe a bit over processed with your dodge and burning, but the composition and detail looks great.
