This was the boat I saw when I suggested the "Boats" challenge. I actually wanted to shoot another grounded boat, the Point Reyes on the shores of Tomales Bay near Inverness, but couldn't make it out there this week. So I decided to go back to the beginning, as it were, and grabbed this on the last day of the challenge. Interesting to see how it goes.

Just got a copy of Lightroom, and this is edited entirely in that program, with only a resize and a light USM in Elements after the fact.

The boat looks OK, but the background seems kind of dull.

It's a very nice composition. Something about the blue-tones is strange to me. I'll go with a high 9.

Good subject well composed.
Needs indeed a sad mood, but the light is here more flat than sad.

Looks quite desolate. I think I would like the midtones lightened and then saturated a bit to provide more contrast with the decrepit boat.

Nice photo. Not a fan of the border. I noticed it way before the finer points of the photo.

composition is good here, the lack of skyline works as well

Seems a wee bit dark to me and a bit overprocessed for my tastes...but what a wonderful job in composition!
