A beautiful peaceful shot.

This is a great composition. The line of the boat draws us out into the water. The rocky islands are quite characteristic of Thailand as is the more traditional boat with flags. The only problem I can see with this image is that it isn't crisp and the sun is a bit too bright. See the workshop I've done and tell me what you think.

This is a great shot! Your composition is very nice here using the boat to lead the eye into the shot. The mountains/rocks provide great framing for the scene. The lighting and colors are fine as well.
A note would be a good addition to this post. Many people on TE will not critique a photo that does not have a note!

Hello Mark and welcome to TE!
This a good shot. The point of view slightly below the horozin allows the boat to stand out on your composition. Having shot the latter in diagonal gives also an nice dynamic to the picture and leads the eye through the center of the image where you have beautiful background.
However, I think you should enhance the colors by giving them more saturation to avoid having a flat image. And I would get rid of the black string on the left hand side, which spoils a little bit your composition.
And most of all: write a note!
Keep on shooting & see you around TE :)

Welcome to TE!
A very nice one to start with! Very easy to recognise it is in South East Asia due to the rock. The flag on the ship tells more though.
Well composed and good light management. A bit more contrast and sharpness would make it even better.
Have a nice day!

Cette photo me plaît beaucoup pour la sérénité qu'elle diffuse.
La barque fait un bon premier plan, l'eau a une transparence et des couleurs rares. Les rochers semblent des sculptures.
Du très beau travail !
