You're still on a roll, Bragi. This was another of my favourites, I love the texture of the wood against the grey sky. Excellent.

This looks to me like subtle and clarifying use of HDR. Excellent photo.

Very dynamic and well balanced in light, composition and color.

The texture of the wood and the nails really pop at you. The colour play between the flaking varnish and the graying wood is great. The sky is interesting. Lighting and focus are fine. And yet I'm not sure that I like the picture. The perspective belittles the strong and mighty bow, to the point of reducing it to a mere appendix. Thinking aloud here - this could have been a great perspective for the authorities of the threatened central European cities, to encourage their citizens when the Vikings approached up the river...

I suspect 'Eric' is in that boat somewhere...or should be anyway. Excellent photo, very emotive. 10. Now, where's my hat with the horns on it?

6 for composition..nicely done

This is interesting. I like what you've done, but I feel like you've gone just a smidge too far in the processing. There is a sense of two shots converged into one, for me. If you look around the rope and scroll line, there is a ghost line between the boat and the sky. Almost like a bad "green screen effect" in really early sci-fi movies.

Love this boat. Would love to see it up close. Tones are great and the clouds match it all together. A fine image.

Great perspective and I like the look of the weathered wood and the stormy-looking sky. It does feel like the beginnings of an adventure.

Very nice. The texture is great. The leading lines lead me right to the ominous sky. I can smell the salt air in this one. Bravo!
