Nice texture and vibrant colors. Odd scene as well, which is always interesting.

I over-edit as a rule, so here's how I would have ruined this: First off, I maybe would have gotten lower and a bit further away from the boat to give it a deeper, vast feel, and I would have toned down the red in the clay/lake bed/whatever to make it look even dryer than it is, then dodged and burned the cracks to get them to pop a bit more and add a deeper feel to the image. Probably also desaturated it a bit to also play up the stark nature of the landscape and scene in general.

But those are just editing preferences. It's a great find and a great idea.

Strange how a picture lacking the yellow light of the sun, doesn't attract. Good shot 6
