It just appealed to me how the boat and the tree were leaning in the same direction. Tried to get a bit of a mystical look to this by turning it to black and white and giving it a moonlit feel. Taken near Ballyvaughan near the Burren, County Clare, West coast of Ireland. A magical place.

Very well seen and taken, Mari. The B&W treatment works beautifully, although I must admit moonlight doesn't immediately come to mind! A bewitching image.

I agree that the tones are excellent on this one, Mari, and I love the mood you've captured here. I'm not 100% on the composition as I'm not keen on the tree appearing to sprout from behind the boat. It's easy to say when I wasn't there, but a different composition, with more seperation between the tree and boat, would make the image even stronger.

But then again, to get that, you might need to move the boat. Smile
