This is beautiful! Almost monochromatic, but with the one spot of colour. Wonderful composition, with the birds and the boat on THIRDS Wink

Couldn't give a damn about thirds usually, but I have to admit the principle works here.
Curiously, apart from the style of the boat being wrong, this has the look of 19th Century Chinese paintings I've seen, simple but stylised, poles in the water, birds in the sky but no real division between the two. I think it's that lack of a clear horizon that makes this so effective - we can sail off into the sky.

Thank you Moira and take no notice of Jim and David with their thirds chatter, we're just taking the mickey...
Tomorrow's upload is even more Chinese in style, probably better than this one since it is vertical giving even more space to the empty sky and dwarfing the man and boat....

This is so beautiful, I can see it going far and not just on here.
I would love to be able to fill the screen with the picture and be transported to a different world.
Has to be on my award listSmile
