Great abstract shot here, and I am impressed that when you saw this colorful reflection, you actually took a photo of it..... Awesome.

I liked this shot, I gave it a 7. I would have liked to see more contrast but I'm a high contrast addict so....

Somehow my comment during the challenge didn't go through on this one. I think this is an excellent abstract because the lines and colors keep your eyes moving through it and create interest. The balance of the picture works well and although I usually don't care for many abstracts, I find one really nice.

I really, really like the abstract nature of this and the simple colors. I thought it was very well done. Even though I have been here at dpc over 6 years, I am astounded at how people want to be hit over the head with pictures. This, to me, is very obviously a boat. Or maybe I'm just out there. Anyway, I thought it was an excellent shot. Best to you in future challenges.

The abstraction is nice, superbly composed and emphasized by the colors.

My only little complain is that this isn't obviously a boat, you could obtain a similar image with a building, a car...

I really like the photo but for the challenge and in all fairness to the other photos, it's just too far out of the box even for me.

Great abstract of lines & their curved reflections.

So dynamic! I love the subtle primary color scheme, and the rhythm is captivating. Good job doing something different than a picture of the whole boat. The abstraction is more interesting.

Light, colors, lines, they all create interest here. A good abstraction.

This an extremely interesting art shot. Without the benefit of the title, I would have no idea that a boat was remotely involved in this. I'm willing to bet that you don't score well as too many people are going to feel this way.

Great use of reflections and lines. Perhaps if the focus was more on the coloured section(boat?) rather than the background (roller door?) the image may have more impact. Just my 2cents worth.

Patriotic sort of reflection (if you happen to have those colors in your flag, of course). Nice shapes and composition.

Interesting composition.

This is a nice abstract with nice colours. I wish the colours were a bit more saturated, maybe a bit more contrast too. I would never know it was a boat though.

very abstract... don't know how many comments of "can't tell what it is" you will get but I'd bet it will be more than a few!

Love this PP... great POV. 8

This is a nice abstract image but I would like to see the shot as being more of a 'boat' shot as this could actually be anything. I do however like the image but would have score it higher in say a 'patterns' challenge.

Nice abstract , love the lines.

Great patterns! I think it would have worked better though without the border

Love these shots !

I even tried looking at this upside down and still can't see a boat (I never did very well with inkblots either) - nice abstract shot though :)
