    Very depressing to see a boat in this condition. I like the composition better when I crop to just the boat alone. Love the way the clours of the boat and water blend so well. Right on theme.

    Looks like that's been there for a while. IMO the photo would have had even more impact is you had cropped out the far shore.

    hey thanks for the comments. i almost didn't enter this. i took a ride pretty close to the deadline looking for one of these abandoned boats. didn't really study it before entering it with less than five minutes before deadline.
you are both right... when i scroll down (or up) on this page i can see that maybe a square crop with just the water for background would work much better. as for the light, it was very late afternoon with overcast skies. tried bw.
(hey, even in last place, with only fifteen entries it will still help my 'average finish'.)

    I'd clone out the boat in the background and the highrise tower which are distractions. I think more lighting would make this one pop better, and even cropping to just below the treeline makes, for me, a much better image - you don't need the horizon on this one and the subject isolated against the patterned water background makes for a simpler and more effective image.
