[Greetings from the Critique Club

With a score of 6.28 and some fairly complimentary comments, I think you probably got what you wanted out of this image.

It is a good one. Technically there is nothing to fault.

Compositionally, it's very good to have the ship at a tangent to the dock, whether or not it was about to tie up there. I do have one suggestion, however. Your ship seems to be sailing out of the picture, and even almost bumping up against the right frame edge. If you gave it a bit more room (not much) to give it room to maneuver it would make this image really, really good,IMO of course.

I wish you continued success in your entries in DPChallenge.

It is a good thing I did not shoot the Norwegian dawn in Hoboken. It even had a tugboat with the water spray leading it. Your image is just so grand because of the dock and the background. Indeed an outstanding image for this challenge.

Nice perspective. I love the tonal qualities of the blue. The clouds are so soft and dreamy.
