I like the colours and the colour split of the photo. I like the red exclamation mark of the sail (I'd get rid of the tiny blob on the horizon next to it). There does seem to be something missing though - the image is so abstract that it cannot exist as a straight photo - for me it needs to be more painterly, more abstract. I wish I knew what I was on about, but I hope this helps in some way Grin

OK Maria, let's have a look at this...
First off, thanks for commenting ( I hope you're reading this, by the way ), as this image doesn't seem to be going down too well~ not getting votes. I admit it's a bit of an odd one in some ways.
That's not a red sail, it's some kind of odd red-painted pipe/flue/possibly ventilation thingy sticking up out of the sea~ there are deep coalmine shafts running well out to sea in that part of the Durham coast ( which is my home turf ). It's hard to tell because the image quality in that part of the picture particularly is pretty awful. That's because it's a small crop from a much much bigger original. I realize I'm possibly in a minority of roughly one when I say that apart from composition, concerns over image quality and technical perfection don't interest me all that much- I'm less interested in photography and more interested in photographs.
My own feeling about this image is that I'm actually quite pleased with it as a minimalist composition ( it falls flat on it's face without the red pipe ), and I like the colour. What struck me at the time was the way in which this great silent, almost featureless expanse of sea was broken only by this quiet little wave slowly getting ready to break and trying it's best not to disturb the silence in the process. And how the crest looked like a long straight blade slowly being drawn up from below the surface to cut the sea open....
....But I guess you win some, and you lose some. Thanks for the smile, and let me know if you've read this?
