  1. After a few looks at this, the main thing I get from it is the colouring, of the sky and the deeper hues in the water.

    The idea of the island as a result of the composition is accomplished well and its strange connection with the land (mainland?) adds a slightly surreal touch that marries with the overall colour scheme.

    All in all a clever use of the lines available and a sense of place. It’s interesting how that one bit of coastline throws a reflection towards us.

  2. The exposure here is beautiful. I love the way that the blues fade from bottom to top but are then capped with a bit more colour to hold the photo in.

  3. Wouldn’t have thought that knot would have held a whole island….

    The interest for me is in the non-subject areas: all those hues of blue and lines. But I cannot ignore the strength of the handrail leading you in to all this eye feast. Such a strong diagonal and extremely close to taking you immediately out of the picture. Very brave composition! The strong arc of the floats(?) brings me right back in though and plenty of humour and interest keep me engaged.

  4. The way the sky and water become one thing, one color, is a delight. All very effective and clever.

  5. Hmm. Is the island anchored to the handrail, or does the island assure that we won’t lose that handrail? This brought a wide smile. Aside from that intial delight, the blues are extraorinary.

  6. I like the deep blues (on a monitor that shows them well) but am less convinced by the overall compoisiton. It feels a bit forced to me and I don’t get the same sense of the island being tethered the others do, probably because the sweep of the curve leads right off way from the island.
    The other comments helped me see where this ws going but it’s not really doing it for me.
