I could not resist posting the second "good" picture of what I have called "Sea butterfly", this small traditonal Briton sailing boat encountered on board of La Belle Poule at the entrance of the Atlantic. The picture is uncropped. On this lateral view (the boat has turned to the starboard side), the bright colors of the sails remain, but since the boat has changed course and is now going further from us, she looks even smaller on the Ocean, as our friend Pastadog mentionned in his critic. Sorry to abuse of your good will by chosing the same subject.
[PS Elements, Neatimage]
Je n'ai pas pu résister à poster l'autre "bonne photo" de celui que j'ai appelé "Sea butterfly (papillon de mer", ce petit voilier breton traditionnel rencontré à bord de la Belle Poule à l'entrée de l'Atlantique. La photo n'est pas recoupée. Dans cette vue latérale (le bateau a viré de bord sur tribord), restent les couleurs des voiles et comme le bateau a changé de cap et s'éloigne de nous, il a l'air encore plus petit sur l'Océan, comme l'a fait remarqué notre ami Pastadog dans sa critique. Désolé d'abuser de votre bonne volonté en postant le même sujet.

The colours of this ship look great against the blue of sea and sky. The placement of the ship in the shot is good too and it's nice there's so much space around it. Well done!

Yes it is: very good photo, indeed! The boat is so nice in shape and colours! I think you was just wishing to get closest to take some 100 pictures, don´t you? Well done! The contrast of this red sail is wonderful and I can imagine how happy you was watching it.

Bonjour Emmanuelle, maybe the boat looks a bit smaller here, I had to check since it's not so evident or significant difference in overall impact. IMO the main difference between the two shots is in the colors of the sails, in addition to the faded red and orange, we have also yellow and white here, so probably the preference is based on taste. Regards, Daniel

What a gallery you have !
I was navigating in your nice gallery with a fine pleasant trip with your ships :)
A well capture shot and a good composition that I think could be better and stronger,You could set and composed the ship off center,maybe with notice to direction of the ship,could be good in right a bit,but at all I like it surely,and I like the atmosphere here,rael and nice colors you reached and very well worked,Thanks for sharing,

Another pleasant shot from your archives. I particularly like the little extra boat in the scene. The ripples of the sea are also impressive too as they add some dynamism to the shot. Nice work.

Good combination of colors, very calm photo with the horizon line in the middle
You may need more contrast, but good photo and note too
