Ghost Boat

By carper123
One of the many derelict boats on Dungeness beach that have all been photographed many times before and from every pov.
Thought i would have a go at something different in the processing, i am quite pleased with the outcome and i think the title fits the image. What do you think, does it work or not?,Sad any input would be most appreciated good or bad.

This works on many levels, Darryl. The composition , tone and harmonising colours make for a stunning image.

Evidence there used to be water on Mars?GrinGrin Tons of impact, not my style.. but that doesn't make it a bad image.

Works for me, Darryl. Striking and dramatic (almost sci-fi like) image.

At first I thought the remains of the hull looked a bit unstable an ought to be falling towards you but I see the keel is well embedded in the shingle.
Then as I look at the overall effect the more and more it is growing on me and I do like the final result.
A most dramatic image that asks more questions than it answers.
Clever bit of processing, Darryl, and a well executed bit of work from your creative side.

While it's not my style either, your inventive and interesting processing has produced an image that leaps off the screen just as the boat itself seems to merge with the skyline. Excellent composition, too.
It's so good to see something that is really different!

Cracking image. Great colour, but the processing makes it look more as if it was in a desert than on a beach though! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Not sure about the title, for me it seems more on fire but the effect is really very good.
