I live in Devon, and this wreck has been on our local beach for as long as I can remember. I often wonder what kind of a life it had, where she's been and who sailed on her.
She's still beautiful though, in a sad sort of way.

lovely colours on the boat Tracey - I would be tempted to crop the lh side close to the boad as the other boats are distracting

I like shots of old boats and this one is great! The colours and textures are very good.

Good composition... there is something very photogenic about delapidated, solitary boats :o)

Like the texture detail and the wet sand surrounding this beautiful wreck.
Well but daring cropping with the sloped horizon.
Well done.

I agree about the boats being distracting, but personally I would clone them out in preference to cropping, and altering the conposition.

Hi Jason,
I cut and cropped a bit of sand and smudged it in. You would never know they were there, and the shot looks miles better! Thanks Guys!!

Super contrasting colour in this. The boats in the background are distracting as said previously. I would also be tempted to try this again but from a lower viewpoint even if that means lying on your stomach. That would push the wreck into the sky and if possible use a wider angle setting on your lens.

Regards,

David.
