I saw this old boat in a garden close to the beach, it's resting in a corner and telling me that there is always a second chance.

A rather nicely composed image, which quite nicely depicts a great example of environmental friendly gardening, of which I can find to real fault.

This looks like a static display, Mauro, and you therefore had few options regarding composition, and obviously concentrated on your point-of-view, which I think is fine. However, maybe just moving slightly to the left would have given you more of the boat and netting, and less of the fan palm.
My only real niggle is that you have cut off the bottom of the anchor and you only needed a slight adjustment of your camera position in order to include it and leave a little space beneath it.
Lots of nice shapes and textures, good detail and exposure, I like it.

it must be nice to have enough space to have a boat display like that in one's garden. Like Pamela my only niggle is also the anchor bottom needs to be within your frame.

Thank you very much Pamela, what you said is all true and I'll learn from it.

Nice shot Mauro, and as said. a pity the anchor is cropped. I uploaded a mod to try to replace the missing element, and also adjusted the colour balance, which is rather cool, to a warmer tone that suits the image better.

Auto white balance is sometimes responsible for this, so its quite easy to change the white balance manually to the current conditions for a better result.
