This is a glorious shot! I missed the first one but love this! Fantastic colours!
If I was beling picky...! Was it possible to remove that cloth/rug from the boat? Only it's distrating me from the wonderful scene! Silly isn't it, it's not your rug I know! In fact the textures in the boat might have been interesting too! Hope you find this helpful!Tony

Interesting idea Tony that didn't occur to me. I quite liked the cloth but now you mention it, I do wonder if it would look better without it? Looks like I'll have to go back again now!!

The thumbnail looked good and the large is even better! wonderful light on the edge of the boat, brings out the warm tones beautifully. I like the cloth in the boat and the rope, adds some texture to the scene in which otherwise would be too clean looking - in my opinion Smile Love it as it is!

Superb shot ...but I must disagree with tony64..I think the rug/blanket makes it's so clear that you could reach in and touch it ! does draw your eye ..but that's all good to me Smile

Thanks for the comments!

Snapper - I'm very glad I got up early that morning, it makes up for all the times you get up early and the sun doesn't bother to!

I think this is a truly fantastic photograph!

In my opinion this is photography at its best, better than all those HDR shots I see on here!

Deserves an award.

One of the best landscape images I've seen on here in a long time!

I'm firmly in the 'rug camp'. It helps bring interest and light into the boat (important as this is such a large, dominating part of the image). I also love the way that the line of rope leads the eye diagonally towards the lighthouse.

Congrats on the HC!
