Only the old bones are left of this boat.Its ribcage exposed to the bright sun like skeletal remains in a desert.I have places a wider view of this vessel in workshop.Seen in Whitehaven's harbour.
I struggled to manage the light in such a harsh light as I had lost the lens hood to the Canon.I used Photoshop to lessen the brightness.

This is a very good observation, seeing the picture in all the debris here. But the composition is very good with the strong red band diagonally across and the verical stripes from the shadows. They provide a perfect balance to red (and black) diagonal. The blue rope is the perfect accent inside the picture. You must have walked around this motive to get photos from all angles. it would have been interesting to see more of those. But you must have made the right choice of this one! This is very good!

Good Morning Bev,
What no people!
I do like this deviation of yours. The composition, with a strong f/g triangle and diagonal versus vertical lines is excellent. Your close observation of the textures makes us feel we could reach out, touch and compare them.
Very well done.
Have a lovely day,

Nice simple collection of shapes here, Bev, with a strong two-tone shot between the red and the white. The blue rope is brilliant against both, and perfectly placed in the frame. Great detail showing the decay in this boat as well. Good observational shot!

Really nicely seen capture, with extremely rich colours and textures, I feel I could reach out and touch this. The red stains on the wall are a nice addition too, adding to the abandoned feeling of this.
All the best

This is a rather unassuming but very attractive composition. Simple material left for a slow decay, but you saw the beauty of the red and black paint, the blue rope, the diagonals and verticals and the freshness of the colours on this sunny day.

Although you have obviously appended your workshop picture to show a wider view of this decaying old boat, nonetheless I find that an excellent photograph in its own right too. In fact, both pictures are very interesting and also photographically rewarding on account of their lovely "graphic" qualities.
Despite your complaints about the harsh lighting and the fact that you've either misplaced your lens hood (or it's somewhere at the bottom of the sea!), you have coped with the lighting extremely well in both cases. The colours and exposure are excellent but it is, in my opinion, the textures of the flaking paintwork, rotting wood and rust which really make these such fine images.
P.S. What you point out in your workshop are indeed the "ribs" of the hull of this boat, joined to the keel (which is also occasionally known as the "spine" or "backbone"" quite appropriately). The "superstructure" of a boat or ship is all the stuff above deck level.

I am at all times fascinated by boats, as a subject the decaying ones convey an incredible sadness and I always wonder about who worked in them and why they have been abandoned. This is a very fine example and a very well composed impression. Very interesting details and colors. My compliments!

Good morning Bev,
nice the close up view of the 'old wooden bones' that are seem to are abandon.I like the clarity of the image as the brilliant light enhance the vivid colours of the scene.
Have a good day,Danos

la fune azzurra è un ottimo elemento di colore che risalta sullo stato di abbandono della barca.
Una buona luce esalta i particolari,

Hi dear Bev
I think you did really well with the light here, sans lens hood. The colours (which you've normally expect to be faded out in such strong light) are magnificent and you chose your POV so well. Having looked at your wider view, it's a perfect accompaniment to this photo, giving us a good idea of the context and sad state of repair this poor boat's in. The close up is much more artistic and pleasing to the eye and I love the textures that you were able to bring out with the tight framing. An impressive shot of a subject that I adore. I hope it's OK if I add this to my theme Shipwrecks.
