Niccccee! Bold and simple. Very smooth tones on that sky. Good job on that.

Nice! You certainly know your camera - or your Photoshop - or both. Beautiful light, perfect sense of depth, great crop, and the vessel has to be just there. But did it have to be that ugly? Where are the square riggers when you need them...?

Here's another one where the boat is a very small portion of the photo. But in your photo, to me, it is absolutely the main subject and not blown away by any other objects. Well done: 10

I can't tell if my display is frigged up or if you've got banding. We'll assume it's me for now...

Peaceful shot. Honestly, I wish that you could have found a bird flying through, then brilliance! :) I know, you can't just wish for a bird and have one come winging through in exactly the spot you want it.

Love how you used the sun here, although it's verging on too much blank space, the sun at the top of the frame pulls you back in.

Great tones. Beautiful comp.

Great golden tones, and the boat stands out nicely.

very bright and hazy but it works here
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice. I wish the boat had a more defined silouette, as this not really recognizable as any particular ship.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 08:06:05 PM
Beautiful.... maybe just a little bright around the boat, but still a very nice photo. 8

Nice golden glow to the whole shot with beautiful fading mountains in the background. My only wish is that the refection in the water wasn't so bright/white.

Too bad is only one boat in a boats challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 02:40:44 AM
Cool shot, over blown in the center of the water, but great lines with background and what nice colors! The boat is not the main subject and this very good shot will hopefully make a good finish.

Nice tones. which the boat/ship silhoutte was more interesting & lower in the frame
