I can look at this picture upside down, and it still works. Either way, there's an invisible line that tethers the boat to the house. I love this photo!

This photo is so... clear and simple and beautiful. The colours are vivid. There's a sense of place and time and narrative here that grabs me. I gave it 10 - lisae

Initial=very nice!
Composition=This is tricky..... Since my eye goes right to the little house on the sand, and then to the boat, I am wondering if the amount of sky used in the frame is needed. It makes me feel there is a brown stripe almost in the center of the shot... I have tried to visually crop it to see if a different crop would improve or destroy your image.... Hmm. I cropped it in photoshop to just above the sand dune, and to just to the right of the house.. Makes the house more pronounced, and leads the eye down the photo to the boat in a smoother way I think... Tough call, but I think so.
Clarity (focus, details)=details are wonderful
Interesting or Emotive=interesting and emotive

I am using a this new detailed commenting method inspired by autool. (Thanks

Good use of the rule of thirds and color balance

Very nice photo. It kinda reminds me of a famous painting, but I don't remember either the title or the painter. Great title, color, focus...nice job! 9 Swash

Beautiful! Great composition with the boat and the little building very well balanced. If we didn't have to restrain ratio, I'd crop a little more sky off the top. Very nice photo.

nice composition..like the way the boat balances out the house and beige setting..very lonely and yet I think I see a car coming over the horizon

Really like this shot. Good work. 9 JEM

I like the overall shot, but I think that there are to many background divisions that just draw the eye away from the main subject. I think that if you'd cropped the boat on its own, this would have removed the conflict within the shot, looked really cool and added balance to the shot. To me, it has too many backgrounds to be really effective. As it stands, I still really like the shot; it's interesting and well exposedů (7)

Very very well done! I like this pic, the colors and the title...

It looks like to have too photos here one of the boat and one of the house. Ethier one would work by itself.
