Very attractive grain, the boat disappearing into the abstract shapes of the adjacent bows, and the suggestive watery beyond. All subtlety.

Visionary... real and flat ... Buster Keaton is hiding in that boat from Keystone Kops who will never come. The boat is resting. The photo is resting. This is good, because my eyes are tired of being told what to do. Sometimes you have to say to a boat that you just don't want to go anywhere. Some of us enjoy the threshold between land and water. We don't want to shove off. We like it here.

I like the perspective, though the crop seems a little centered to me. The grain works, except in the light area on the lower right, where is seems to be just overlaid on an area of bright highlights.

Without the title I really would have trouble figuring out what this is. I think it is the way the highlight in the boat kind of runs into the background. Doesn't separate enough to be recognizable. My eye automatically goes to the brightest part of the image so I really don't see the nice separation on the left that was achieved. That is what you want throughout the whole image.
