Sometimes the most basic subjects are those that appeal to the eye. This shot has all the components to make it worth looking at again and again. A definite wall hanging in my book. Well done.

I really do like your birdshots, and as you have probably seen, I like shoting them myself (only using a Nikon). And then there is this boatshed. I love this blue colour and the simplicity of the compostition, really works very well.
It seems so perfect, but isn't. There is that one woodboard that is askew and I know that most people would have cropped a little bit more at the bottom, but you didn't and it makes for a little opening, a glimpse of the inside in a way.
This was my very first challenge, Blue II, and I too picked a building. Didn't do very well though.

I love the strong lines, the simplicity, and the subject matter.....A really great shot.....I even like the broken "blue" paleing on the right-hand side.

Not bad but the blue needs to be much richer and more pronounced.

I love the clean lines, simple color contrasts, and basic composition here. The one crooked slat really adds character. Good capture.
