Reflections alwyas fascinate me as they provide interesting subjects to shoot. If reflections are backed up by sunset colors like these , they provide an icing to the cake.
This was taken at Diamond Harbor, just before sunset.
PP- Changed levels, added a bit contrast, filtered and sharpened in Neat Image.Resized and added a border.

Amazing boat, amazing mirror. Wonderful contrast. Wonderful take.

oo, very very nice shot. No wonder you were attractive to this light and silhuette reflection. It makes excellent and very strong graphical effect. It associates me of Japan. I do not why but it does. Excellent shot!

The scene is wonderfull...
The placement is fine..
Is there a bit more darkening? Is that needed?
But I like this dreamy effect..
All the best, dear friend.

An image which resembles more one drawing than with a photograph. Pretty treatment, perhaps a little dark, but quite pleasant to look at. Centering here is not awkward. I like the reflection. A filled up composition of poetry.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Nice reflection and sunset mood in this capture. Perhaps you may find alternative to off center the boat and the color tone more natural?
Good work and TFS.

your choice of category is "nature", but I don't think so. this is illusionary shot of inner feeling.
and very artistic and picturesque picture this is.
the contrast between brown and black is beautiful and effective to express this air.

I very nice scene, but maybe a bit too dark?! The silhouettes & the reflections work fine here. What Pp did you do here...some hint of oversharpening as well around the boat or are they signs of compression. Not sure, but compo. is well done.

This is no doubt a great composition with sunset colors and the boat in silhouette.But I think the picture could have been better in quality.I agree with Angshu that there are some signs of compression around the boat.Glimpse of some horizon will also be nice.Anyway good work friend...

A post after a long time. Nice dutone image. Like the rich dark copper red tone.
It would look great in B/W too. A great hikey image in B/W.
Done a WS in hikey B/W.

I like the overall feeling here, like a drawing with ink. Maybe a tiny bit too dark and saturated, and slight signs of oversharpening around the boat. I wish it was a bit less in the center. Nice direction to go, good subject with a lot of mood, keep them coming!
Have a nice w-end

Composition wise this is excellent, many others pointed out the technical aspects, so I won't get into that. I just like the atmosphere here, well done.

it's a beautiful composition with adorable color cast. however, i have a little irking feeling about the artifacts around the boat silhouette. checked it on two monitors, present on both. other than that little detail: my compliments for the simple beauty of the compositional idea.
lopshang (724) 2008-03-14 6:55
Spectacular composition. Both colors area complementing at each other. Its a very stunning shot. By the way your another shot titled as "Slopes of snow" is also amazing.
