Thanks for all the nice comments, when I spotted this shot I had very little time to perfect it as the yacht was emerging from the mist rapidly, I considered retaining more sea but my final crop really represented my vision so I stuck with it.
Thanks again

This is just such a beautiful picture! I personally think it was worthy of a much higher score and placement (like maybe the score of the commenters) but having a photot like this in your collection can't be bad no matter what the score.

One of the best shots so far in this challenge, it fit perfectly and is just a beautiful capture. Excellent work. 9

Arrrrr.... Good placement. I like how you sized the boat relatively small, it does something for the picture.

I love it. I wish there was a little more contrast between the foggy sky and the pink sails. 8

The boat seems ready to drop out of the frame. I would have liked to see a bit more texture in the sky (birds, broken clouds, etc.)

land ahead! - good framing

Impeccable composition - very clever to use that slight drift from the very strong lines of frame to impose a near-invisibility on your subject, and yet maintaining great detail, and wonderful tonality through the frame. It would, i suspect, be a hit as a print. It diesn't actually speak of minimalsim in the srtistic sense, but certainly within our challenge description, it does: the subject is too uncomplicated for the art guys, I would say.

this is great! i really like the tight crop on the bottom, but i don't think it'd hurt to show just a *little* more of the ocean (maybe a 50% increase)

Very simple but very effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2005 05:26:08 PM
Nice. Would have liked not quite a tight of crop on the bottom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2005 03:38:56 PM
The stillness, the quiet, the dampness...this is wonderful, very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think that if you zoomed in and cropped a lot of the space out it would be more effective while staying on topic.

Okay .. I'm stumped. I sit here wanting to 'contribute' and comment in some useful way. I can't. Dammit. This is too good and that's that ... *sigh*

I would like to see more water on the bottom, it seems cut off. Otherwise I really like this. Good luck.

great use of space
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The sky does not add here. The size and colors are great.

Woow this is truly minimalist ! Love the thick mist,and I love the shot ! 9

04/30/2005 10:00:15 AM
the boat looks really nice, but i think you cropped too much off the bottom...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2005 06:32:14 AM
could have increaed the red, so as to highlight the yatch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2005 12:48:00 AM
what can I say but very nice. Well composed and the lighting is good. Great mood set. Good luck in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2005 12:01:36 AM
now that minimal, although a bit mor strong color of the red sail would have lended to this shot a biit more
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice picture. I would have prefer to see a slightly tighter crop.

Very eerie!

This image is presented with such lucidity...not the subject but the spirit of the challenge. It is an image I envy because long ago I shot a similar one in Lake george with a rowboat and a yellow sail jacket in the distant fog. Well, you have my congratulations here because the negative space is employed here with a high skill level. My favorite for this challenge. You get the big bump. P.S. this image is so good i am placing it in my fav list right now.

Gorgeous shot. Like the mood and the beautiful colors of the sails. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Obviously meets the challenge no question about that. I like the effect of the fog but at the same time I wish the subject was a little more focused just because it is a little lost in the vastness of the entire image. I think for this challenge I understand why you chose to make the subject so small but I think you could have cropped a bit of the sky out (while still maintaining the off center composition) and you would have still met the challenge while making the subject just that little bit bigger.

I love the lost feel in this image.

This is a very cool picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 09:35:21 AM
No question that it meets the challenge. It's atmospheric, but my impression is that the boat is just a little too weak a focal point and the haze is just a little too monotonous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 09:21:51 AM
Nice, maybe just a shade more space under the boat
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 09:16:02 AM
Wow... very impressive image. Good luck.

04/27/2005 06:24:50 AM
nice. but my eye would like to see a bit more of the sea
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely done <6>
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 05:53:16 AM
nice shot, probably better with a substantial crop on the top
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 05:37:47 AM
This is so close to being brilliant - for me, I would have preferred the subject a little higher in the frame. I know that means more (darker) sea but it is too close to the bottom of the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 01:07:24 AM
Beautiful color contrast, and wonderful sharpness on the sailboat. The sharpness is especially nice when placed against the smooth fog.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 01:04:29 AM
just a touch more sea would have made this a ten to me, still like it quite a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 12:18:42 AM
I like it! Maybe just a little too much empty space.
