Congrats on fifth, on your first entry! Amazing. Great shot of the Peter Iredale, I know exactly where that is at. Love the blurred water.

I've been to see this wreck many times, and I never once thought of using it for the Rust challenge. It was a great idea, and it resulted in a great photo too. From the comments you received I'd bet that if you had leveled the horizon you would have won a ribbon with this image. Good work!

One of my favorites. The spots on the bottom right corner are a bit distracting though. I would prefer it to be a bit sharper and cropped differently (include the whole shadow in the picture). (9)

What a great find! I love the slow shutter effect, and the old hull is a great point of interest. The dull blue/grey also works great in the image, but I would have like to see a bit more sharpness in the hull details.

excellent, long exposure added to the feeling... I also like that the photo is aligned to the object, not to the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

hmmm ... i only give this a 6 because the horizon is tilted ... i'd like more rusty color and sharpness ... i would also have cropped differently (cut off the rock on the left, have the whole reflection on there and slightly move the wreck to the left) ...i like the long exposure

I like this a great deal. In spite of a few flaws it may well be best of show. The sloping horizon bothers me a bit but it seems to work with the rest of the composition. Love the colors and levels. Misty sky with a hint of sun about to emerge adds drama. Good luck. - 10

Truly a gorgeous image.The horizon just seems a little off, and I don't mean from the horizontal, but off of where the perspective of horizontal eyes viewing this would lead. I want to tilt my head to the right to look at this. The highlight in the sky right at the prow is very serendipitous and the overall lighting, colors, textures, superb.

A 10.

Fine image, nice composition, I like the angled horizon and the colour is really nice. 8/10

in a word ...... perfect !
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the mood of this picture, the subject, the colors and the long exposure. Too bad the horizon's tipped, and I think the cropping could be tighter (perhaps in portrait rather than landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2004 07:31:39 AM
Love the motion blurr, the colour and the 'depth' of this composition...well done = 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2004 01:41:37 AM
Definately in the rust category but the photo appears dead. I would have chesen different wheather to compose the photo(but that's my choice).

A pity about the weather, colours would have been more interesting on a different day.

05/08/2004 06:23:32 PM
perfect shutter speed, I never like water movement overdone. Love the subject and composition too.

05/08/2004 02:05:05 PM
Awesome! For me this is definitely a top-10 shot.

oo that looks cool, like a ghost ship kinda..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not a bad shot of the 100yr old boat! I like how you capture the ocean foam sweeping from shoreline back to sea. Would have preferred to see this with a level horizon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

So close to being great...not enough reds and horizon tilted distractingly...more contrast better for the water?? V. good though

Perfect except for the sloping horizon.

I don't understand why you wanted the horizon tilted so much. I also wonder if the shot might be improved by aiming to the left slightly - adding that rock to the left of the frame. I really like the shot though, especially how the wreck fits perfectly with the cloudy gloomy look that would spoil most other pictures. The blur in the waves also fits the picture well. good job.

I really like this but the tilted horizon is bothersome
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 11:59:30 PM
could have been tilted slightly to horizontal....8

It seems you have edited this photo "a little bit". Then just a 5.
05/06/2004 02:07:15 PM
Very good, but a bit too centered main object. And there's a "what's-that-on-the-left-feeling". I would have moved to the left to bring that in (depending on what it was perhaps) or zoomed in a bit to get rid of the left thingie and get a more interesting composition around the main wreck.

beautiful. -10

05/06/2004 08:52:30 AM
Great colors
I hope nobody marks you down for the none flat horrizon
I would have rotated it more to make the side of the ship look more like a bow giving the impression speed eg. ran aground at speed 9

05/06/2004 08:13:20 AM
This would be a very nice picture - if the horizon was level. It just looks extremely weird the way it is now. But I like the object and also the way the water looks with this long exposure time. The foam in the bottom left is a bit distracting, too - but not too bad.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 04:24:35 AM
I like the hazy affect, but the horizon not being straight is a little off putting I think
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 12:22:15 AM
i love the background. its a good picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 09:54:59 PM
Beautiful capture with just the right amount of rust. Soft fluid colors with great contrast and lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 06:54:59 PM
a little sharper focus and a tighter crop on the l;eft would have made this absolutely stunning, the shadow/reflection is very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 04:40:58 PM
Not bad... The Peter Iredale. I hope you fare better in this competition than she did at Fort Stevens...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 04:02:52 PM
Very nice, would have been better if shot at dusk or dawn to bring out the orange and red of the thr rust.

05/05/2004 12:41:10 PM
nice exposure and composition

05/05/2004 11:27:26 AM
Good scenery, that thing on the left should be cropped out.

Good work!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 11:17:14 AM
Neat shot -good entry for the challenge. Maybe cropping off the left side and adding some saturation would of given this a bit more punch.

One of my favorites in the challenge. Good blur on the ocean.

I was wishing for a sight like this. Nice capture. I don't really like the tilted horizon. But the long exposure is a nice effect.
