A little beached fishing boat basking in the late afternoon sun on the pebble beach in the seaside town of Worthing in West Sussex, England.

Superbe avec cet étonnant ciel en feu en arrière-plan et le très bon cadrage de cette barque.

The two Dolphins are very nice painted on the boat
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Wonderful composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Excellent boat close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. Perfectly controlled background blur. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.

proprio bella e originale, l'inquadratura è un vero colpo di genio e i colori fanno il resto.

l love the colours of your photo, mostly the shades of blue. l like the composition, but is it the sky in the background? It could be a painting too. The contrasts are perfect! Amazing!
Have a nice day

Great low pov & Original crop. The sky is terrific, as are the colours and tilt of the boat. Wonderful shot!

Have you ever seen a movie called "The Cell" with Jennifer Lopez? Great film made partially in Namibia and in the opening scenes, there is a boat in a very surreal landscape, that is exactly what this reminds me of. Seeing as that is a favorite film of mine, a great memory. This is a creative and very appealing scene, the boat at a perfect tilt, with a pretty stunning backdrop! Always a lesson to learn in photography for me.

Excellent close-up of this beautiful colorful boat. Like the way you composed and cropped the scene with perfectly executed details in the foreground and superb golden wall in the background. Lovey shot!
Have a nice weekend!

Kia ora Brian,
Great photo taken from an interesting angle. Both sides of the boat - the area in shade & out of are in good colour and the use of the amazing sky as a backdrop is most unusual. Cheers, Neil

I see you've tried a different crop here, without the reflection...works as well but my preference goes to the other one...I'm still puzzled about those clouds. They're really eye-catching but I can't wrap my head around what they are...

A very attractive minimalist image. Beautiful colours. You have chosen a creative direction of view to capture the unusual golden sky above the boat. (In the thumbnail image I thought that it was a Namibian sand hill in the background.)

A good pic showing the lonely boat. Tightly cropped. The sky colour is outstanding.
Thanks for sharing.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-05-19 0:54
this is truly magnificent shot!
The boat itself is beautiful with its colorful painting scheme,but here as much as the boat I love the backdrop.The warm coloured sky makes wonderful background and at the same time creates really lovely,dreamy mood of the scene.
Have a nice day

This is such an original composition, I haven't seen anything like it on TE before. The clouds seem like they're rising out of the boat, thanks for the clever way you composed it. The colours in the boat have been saturated beautifully, retaining the colour and detail in the sky aswell. Great job, a real pleasure to view.

very original boat photo. i cannot understand how the background is occured, or whether it is sky with extremely low, orange clouds or a fraction of sand dunes (as it also gives such an impression), but the overall result is mesmerizing. congrats for the efficient 4 years on TE!

The sky is quite extraordinary giving a very creative BG for this lovely old boat. Cleverly framed with the rope anchoring it to the out of sight beach.
Kind Regards, Ann

I really like the composition in this one. The background looks like a wall of fire!
