In sociology or anthropology, social status is the honor or prestige attached to one's position in society (one's social position). It may also refer to a rank or position that one holds in a group, for example son or daughter, playmate, pupil, etc.
Social status, the position or rank of a person or group within the society, can be determined two ways. One can earn his or her social status by one's own achievements, which is known as achieved status. Alternatively, one can be placed in the stratification system by his or her inherited position, which is called ascribed status. Ascribed statuses can also be defined as those that are fixed for an individual at birth. Ascribed statuses that exist in all societies include those based upon sex, age, race ethnic group and family background. For example, a person born into a wealthy family characterized by traits such as popularity, talents and high values will have many expectations growing up. Therefore, he or she is given and taught many social roles as he or she is socially positioned into a family becoming equipped with all these traits and characteristics. Achieved statuses meaning also what the individual acquires during his or her lifetime as a result of the exercise of knowledge, ability, skill and/or perseverance. Occupation provides an example of status that may be either ascribed or achieved, it can be achieved by one gaining the right knowledge and skill to become socially positioned into a higher position of that job; building a persons social identity within the occupation....
Social stratification describes the way people are placed in society. It is associated with the ability of individuals to live up to some set of ideals or principles regarded as important by the society or some social group within it. The members of a social group interact mainly within their own group and to a lesser degree with those of higher or lower status.
Wealth and Income (most common): Ties between persons with the same personal income
Gender: Ties between persons of the same sex and sexuality
Political Status: Ties between persons of the same political views/status
Religion: Ties between persons of the same religion
Ethnicity/Race: Ties between persons of the same ethnic/racial group
Social Class: Ties between persons born into the same group
* P.S. The boats that you see are not except energy, neither full waste! They is tools of fishery! from certain small poor fishermen, that with these rudimentary tools and the wooden boats, fish with labour and dangers, and gain few money as the day's pay, in order to they live their families!

Même si le soleil n'est pas là, la photo est magnifique et ces deux bateaux dont celui d'en avant est chargé au bloc, sont très intéressants surtout par la disposition, qu'on pourrait dire, entre le père et le fils. Excellente présentation, bon rendu des couleurs et superbes reflets.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne fin de semaine,

Le bateau en avant plan ressemble beaucoup à une poubelle de la mer ou tous les rebuts sont assemblés en attendant de sombrer. cela ne donne pas vraiment un beau paysage.

I find it is right your title, because the boat looks like a low social status. Good sharp and reflections in difficult light conditions.
