This is really very nicely seen, and it well deserves its high finish. I do have a couple of issues with the processing of it, but they don't take away from the quality of the essential work.

First and foremost, the frame seems way too heavy and restrictive for this image. Secondly, the burning-in of the water upper right is not very smoothly done, and it looks very artifical. If you did this by hand, you might want to know about how to do this kind of thing with gradient overlays. Feel free to PM me for an explanation of how, if you wish.

Finally, I wish there were a trace of separation between the boat and the wall/pier in the lower left. Not much, just a hint, to have that area come alive.

VERY nice work!

I love the colors. The frame is too much thick for me.

should have maybe not done so much burning. the water looks too blue and i can see your burn markings.

Nice colours and contrast

A litle bit to much blue and I´m not sure about the frame, but some how I still like this one 8

Lotsa potential, but too much blue.

I really like this photograph. The compositon and complimentary colors make this visually appealing. I am not sure if it my monitor or not but it looks oversaturated. The water looked like velvet. Despit that I still think it is a much better than average shot. 7

Very nice indeed - close to being over processed, a 6.5 (7).

Very nice shot but just a bit to contrasty for me... I'll still score it high though because I think its just a personal taste thing. Good job.

I like the boat being shaded on the one side.

The colour saturation is a little too over-done for my taste, but otherwise a nice image.

Love the red/blue theme. Great rich vibrancy. Nice off centering of the subject. So simple - yet lovely.
