Good use of that lens - and I like the shadow from the broken end of the boat SmileSmile
[its probably the stern, but if I am wrong I will get shot down, so I will call it the endWinkWinkWink]

Definitely the stern and the shadow makes the image for me Smile

Has accepted that life at sea is over, John: fine image, well composed, and the fish eye altering perspective and emphasising the boat selectively.

The fish eye lens adds that bit extra to this strong composition.

I don't know why but when I looked at this it reminded me of the bullied kid all alone in the school yard, my mind does work in strange ways. - gary

Phew. Looks hot and sterile. Almost desert-like. Super wide. Smile

Yes,definately the blunt end of the boat here Bill.
(And I recall a function I was at in the Navy club one night.(Not to be confused with the Dockers club you understand.)The old sea dogs there were adamant that ANYTHING that floats on top of the water is a SHIP.It is a submarine that is only a BOAT as it goes under the water.I am still not convinced with that one though !!)

Absolutely LOVE this shot Bill! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin (That's like 5 stars)
Your Dungeness work is IMHO some of your absolute best stuff, last years and this years!
So my UA goes to you sir today!
Oh... the reasons I like it?
Well... there are too many to list!
But here goes....
Those gorgeous vapour trails in that stunning sky, the foreground shadow, a gorgeous old dilapidated boat, the shingle detail... I could go on!
All in all, its a great composition and one of those times when everything comes together all at the same time Wink (doesn't happen for me much these days!) Sad
A pic to brighten anyone's day!
Today, I'm off to see the torch! It's finally got to North London!
And it's a scorcher!

Super stuff here, Bill, wonderful shadow...and there's just a bit of deep blue on the back end / rear / stern which matches that lovely deep blue sky Smile

Excellent colours and composition Bill, that boat does look sad and lonely left to rust and rot in peace
