Went for a walk tonight, took some shots and when I had finished looking at them when I came home I decided to send this one into this challenge.

### Post-Challenge ###

Some of you were right, this is the sun, not the moon. I wasn't abusing the challenge in any way. I simply taking advantage of how long the sun is up during summers here in Iceland. And no, you don't have ICEBERGS all year around if you live in the nordic hemisphere.

Also, I comprehended late night not as past 12 o'clock. I thought it was refering to the gap between the day and night. I'm awful sorry if somebody might feel that I abused the challenge

is that the moon?

Uhh...sorry for my ignorance but that big yellow circle in the middle of your picture looks like the sun! Except of course, you have a terrible hot spot on your camera :)
It's a nice picture, but you're intentionally abusing the challenge. I'm sure you'll understand that I have to give you a 1. If I'm totally wrong, PM me after the challenge.

The sun doesn't give the late night impression. Apart from that, this is a great photo.

Not quite late night sailing with the sun up.... nice photo and I understand your concept but as far as this challenge goes I'd have to say it doesn't quite fit.

Love the shot, but can not agree that it meets the challenge with the sun in the shot. If that is a really bright moon, then I apologize.

i guess you've already had plenty of people comment on the fact that this is not a night shot, so I'll just say that aside from that, this is a PHENOMENAL picture! I love it!

This is my 2nd look at this shot and I'm bumping it up. I'm really impressed that there is no lens flare. You may get voted down because it is not late night but you can say that it was in the afr northern latitudes where the sun sets at 11:30 PM. Good luck! 7

This is a nice image. I really like the reflection seen on the water in this photo. Nice work.

That's wonderful. I love how the sunset is reflecting on the water.

7. I like the crop, very nice. The boat is a bonus along with the nice composition.

This looks like late afternoon sailing, but nice framing and capture nonetheless

The sun which shines straight to the camera creates a mystical feeling to this picture. A very succesful and beautiful shot but I would have cropped the sun to up left.

Late night? The sun is out--or is that the moon so bright? lol
I really like the colors of the sky and the way the light reflects on the sea.

I'm guessing that's the moon, and if it is, that is a fantastic shot. I love the silhouette. Good composition. I would probably crop it below the clouds, as the distance that they are separated from the main subject causes them to distract the attention away from the ship and moon which are the focus of the picture. Moon reflection on the water really adds to the picture. Great shot, 9 from me.

Nice picture. Missing the challenge though, isn't that the sun?

It looks too much like a sunset picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I see a sun in the sky, and no icebergs to indicate that you're in the arctic circle, thus I must conclude that this was not taken late at night.

beautiful scene. the water seems concrete and nicely textured.

Beautiful. Love the contrast. Love the scale.

Nice shot, is it midnight sun or the post editing that makes the moon look yellow/orange? Nicely framed.

Oh wow! This is art gallery material. Simply fantastic. 10

This is SUCH an awesome picture!!!!! I love the sky and the water, and the interest that the tiny ship on the horizon gives it.

Looks too much like a sun.

could be daytime for all I know..im sure its night, but your shot is overexposed.
05/04/2005 11:08:04 AM
PRE- late night sailing

Lovely picture, but it doesn't fit the challenge--it's obviously not taken late at night
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I almost couldn't believe that this was a moonlit shot until I decided that you must be shooting from shore and that the clouds are indeed moving along. nice illusion. White balancing it harshly (but not too much) to the blue side would create more of a night feel but less of a puzzling interesting image.

Sailing without sails?? Sun flying high late at night? What is this bizarro world setting?? :)
