Although I would have been inclined to have the main subject even more off-centre, I quite like this - the simplicity of it, and the tones.

Nice colours but the yacht is to small in the frame. Cropping all round will make the subject to stand out more.

I like this. Yatch in the centre? Rules are made to be broken. Here it works and the space around the subject gives the impression of the vastness of the scene. Only my own views. We allsee things differently.

Hi. Thanks for the comments. I took thE picture to be the sea, and a yacht in it to add interest. I tried the 'rule of thirds' but it didn't work. There was too much space. I placed it slightly off centre to give it a feeling of journey. I didn't want to increase the size of the yacht because that isn't the subject of the picture, the sea and sky is the subject and I thought to increase the size of the yacht would detract from the tones of the sea and sky.

I believe in Tocketts comments about looking at the rules but sometimes it's necessary or better to break them. As someone once said to me. 'Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the obedience of fools'.

But that's the beauty of photography (and art generally) . It's subjective and each person interprets the message in their own way......
