What an amazing sky. Love to have seen it in real life!

Initial: I am drawn to the clouds.

Composition: The space infront of the boat/ship is a great way to show the movement of the ship. The sun framed in the upper right corner catches my eye, and then my eye explores the illuminated clouds around it. I wonder if the ship had been given a chance to reach the area in the sun rays, if it would glisten and not be so dark, and further give impact to the rising sun.

Technical: Tones, focus and clarity are all very good. I also like the choice to put the horizon at a lower level in the frame.

Generally nice work. Has a nice serene feel to it.
My only nit is the boat looking a bit flat..and maybe more sunlight on it would help. Did you take additional frames?
Nice job!

nice image. ominous because of the dark above the sun and around the boat. it looks more like there goes the sun but i like the image.

Second one I've seen... every time I heard this song, I'd think of a BRIGHT CLEAR day with the Sun rising over a densly populated city like SF, etc. I like this pic but it's a little "gloomy" as opposed to the "Hear Comes The Sun" feeling of this song. You still get an 8 however. :)

This is a very powerful picture. You could argue that it is empty, but I think that is nonsense in this case.
"Here comes the sun", well, it really shows that. The bright spot in the dramatic sky and the wonderful effect on the mist/haze is great. The sun also povides beatiful background detail without spoiling the image, the clouds over the mountains very nice.
The boat is a nice touch, provides frontal horizon filling and above all a scale to aprreciate the 'greatness' of the sun.

Excellent! It didn't even need the ship. The sky is beautiful enough.

I really liked this photo, the border really helped. I wish there was a bit more blue and the boat really distracts from the sun, which by the title should be the focal point. 8.

Take my comments for what they are worth for I am just a novice with a new camera. Dodo

This is a really pretty shot. I think it depicts the song well. Your focus and clarity on the water is simply awesome. Even in the darkness you can see the detail of the little waves. You did a great job of leveling the horizon, and the photo is divided very nicely. Great shot. Good luck in the challenge.

Nice picture! I like seeing the boat. A few sun rays would have made this perfect. A little bright in the cloud.

Absolutely fantastic. I've got a really slow dial-up connection and as this thing loaded row by row it just got better and better. I love the reflections of the water. Great color. Great composition. This is a hell of a picture.
