This is an amazing shot. I'm now considering retiring MY silhoutted sailboat! Great work.

Gorgeous Photo!! The halo effect from the sun and the reflection in the water are perfect.

The golden colors in this image look wonderful; could maybe be cropped so the boat is not so centered.

Nice silhouette, but the leaning horizon is really disturbing.

Nicely catched moment....maybe would prefer it bit less centered.

Very nicely done. The water, sky and the boat all look good and avoided over exposing the sun.

Wonderful capture of the sun in the gap of the sail. I like how the shadows of the waves give a sense of texture.

Nice picture there. Lovely colors, nice cropping, nice location of the sun :o) The outlines of the boat are very clear... Well done :o)

The lighting in this picture is beautiful, both on the water and the positioning of the sun through the sails.

Great timing with the sun and boat. Nice colors too. You should do well.

Wow, this picture is beautiful. I love the location of the sun and the boat and everything. Very clean. The only thing is there is that little boat out in the distance. 9

I love the waves!!!
The horizon isn't straight... and I think it°ll be better if it wasn't too close to the center of the pic.

This is one of my favourites. The clarity in the water is amazing, love the positioning of the sails and sun and the overall colours and tone of the photo.

I really love the colors and the way the sun peeks between the sail. I wish the horizon had been straightened as I feel it may hurt your score over all.

I'm sure the boat wasn't standing still... the timing on this shot was impecable. Nicely done!

Heh, the halo around the sun makes me think of the "Eye of Sauron". I think I've been reading too much Tolkien.;)

Very nice shot. The ripples and reflection in the water is what really makes this shot strong. 7 for now.

I really like the copper sky, water reflection and the sun peeking between the sails. I would like to see the shoreline leveled, though - it looks the boat is sailing downhill...or maybe my head is crooked. Either way, nice shot!

I love how the sun is peaking between the sails! I would have rotated a tad CCW (+/- .5).
