    Thanks for the nice comment neat, really did not think this would win. Thought I had a better chance with my other, but seems overall most liked this better.

    you are very greedy, lol dominating both challenges. I think I like this one more, love the POV and the b and w tones, esp the dark tones underneath, my style!

    What a brilliant photo! Easily gets my #1 vote. The perspective, along with the bw conversion bring it all home.

    Compelling shot in b&w - imagining what it looks like in color...

    My No. 1 choice from the get-go. Great angle, excellent choice of B&W to bring out the detail of the sails and downplay the sky.

    A beautiful picture. Feeling of sailing is imminent here. High in my favorites.

    Know the song - as such, like your composition especially with the low clouds in the sails..very nice! Personal taste is for a bit more contrast, but that's just me...

    this caught my eye on slide show as it reminds me of the famous Bekan of Cowes. A maritime photographer from 1888. the company now use canon 1ds but the original used a homemade large plate camera with a bulb in the mouth to operate the shutter standing in a small boat
check out the web site beken of cowes pictures on google they are awesome.

    Nicely captured view reminds me of the days cruising the Chesapeake Bay and eastern seaboard on my father's sloop - nothing like this I think. Lovely and natural bw. My top pick.

    My immediate reaction was this was wonderfully artistic and a superior shot. I'll bet it looks ever better the larger it is.

    Image matches the song well in theme and feeling. It really places you in the song. I can feel my feet on deck while I look skyward.
