An old boat that stranded here. It has been here as for at least twelve years now.
Taken in some really shitty weather, snowdribble and windy, had some niceley wet pants that morning :D
Used Shadow/highlighting, burn/dodge, eased down a bit on the saturation and upped the contrast, usm and finnally resize.

hello from the critique club, Im Cher and I will be your critiquer today :o)

I like the abandoned, rustic feel of this photo i think this would have been better suited in either a B&W or siepa tone to give it more of an aged/old feel. I feel either more color or less color would have been better than the muted colors it has.I think you should have waited on a better day weather wise as I think this would have been an AWESOME photo with a pretty blue sky overlooking the boat and city(in the BG) I think you did very well on your composistion and the dodge/burn is excellent!

If you have any questions about this critique please PM me. Good luck in future challenges and have a great day!

Nice photo though old wrecked boats make me cringe as a boat owner...
