Greetings from the Critique Club:

Another comment from me I'm afraid.

I didn't even cast an eye over this challenge during voting - I knew this was yours as soon as it opened up in the window. As I said in another comment, I think that's a good thing.

What an amazing histogram, even with a peak at 4, you have a second peak at 1! Impressive.

I have to say, I'm at the other end. I love this! Full of whirling life and energy. Your title was just enough to facilitate instant lock on to the image and get a handle on it. That doesn't mean that other images were repressed though. I instantly got echoes of the ocean, the swathes of grass like rolling waves, the tree line becoming the horizon itself while we, on our boat, are tipped at the mercy of the waves.

As a viewer I experienced a similar sensation to that I first received on viewing that painting of Turner's where he had strapped himself to a mast to experience the scene - Snow storm / steam boat??

Disorientation, abstraction, clarity.

Then there's the kit you've used, the way LBs offer up elliptical frothy circles of confusion; here they add to the feeling of water - like sea spray.

As you can see, I like it well enough. I'm sure you don't mind the 1s at all. There may have been a 1 in my score had I voted.

So many stories, most of them funny, can't say I get the title, but then I'm a South-effriken.

Unintentional spelling error corrected.
