Boat in Sunset

Another nice shot! Great composition to add to the overall motif.

A really iconic, charming shot. A lot to say about it.

Leading the eyes to the sun, the dark line of the clouds provides some interest on the right. The sun is resting nicely in the fronds of the trees. The trunks, fronds & ground frame the boat well. The location of the boat in the reflected vertical line of the sunset is wonderful. 2 steps to the left may have made the arrangement perfect.

I'm not sure if the slight lens flare adds or detracts. Initially I didn't notice it, but once I did it became difficult to ignore. The roof's an arrow pointing to it. However, the flare also creates a line directing the eye to the well-framed sun and the left side of the image.

The upper clouds' texture is wonderful. From 1 view, they have a 3D aspect. From another it looks like a painting. I know that sounds contradictory, but it's part of the appeal.

Great job!

Thanks for the comments

Funny that I have not noticed the glare before Darell's comment :-)
