Many thanks for your honest words about the weird clouds.. Looks like I was wrong about the black and white Smile

After a stressful week we went off to La Rochelle to see civilization. Since Chris preferred to stack up Zzzs I went on the harbour 'bus' boat, to get some shots in spite of the somewhat unsatisfying light. Straight into the 'sun' it actually looked good I think.

Well I hope you like it a bit better than my last upload.

Lovely silvery tones and balanced composition. The little dotted sailing boats look good, Annette.

A silvery shimmery sea with a lovely line up of boats.
The light blue streaks across the sky work well with the composition.

Lovely mood created by the restricted color palette, light and perpendiculars along the horizon axis. It has a graphic yet artistic quality that is very aesthetically pleasing, Annette

What Lynne said, this is such a wonderfully calm scene which holds great appeal because of the minimal colours

The minimal, almost partially de-saturated colours really work well, Annette. Gives an almost 30's feel to the image.
