Not sure if this counts as "landscape" in the classic sense, but I quite like it anyway,

John.

Very nice John! I love the composition, warm light,and colors, the blue water is beautiful and the white color of those tanks really compliments the blue imo.

John,

Oh, great play with light and wind. Very powerful and dynamic picture! Almost bursting with power

[Of course it is a landscape in a not so narrow meaning of the word; there are no forums for seascape or cityscape :-]

Again; fantastic picture. Shutter 1/2000?

If you don´t mind (just tell me and I´ll delete this section - I really mean it) I don´t in anyway compare the following picture with yours - but sure theese pictures are "landscapes". One day, after the oil era it might be a classic. The oil tanks I mean and perhaps your picture. You can also see the future in the sails filled with powerful wind

You're reckoned a Landscape photographer, after all

Anyway, the diagonal placement of the boats from right bottom corner to the left top corner,while bringing some sensemovement to this bright neat image, alsoscornfully (if that's the phrase!) refersto thebulky background of tanks, owing to their white sails, in a setting of complementary and therefore complimentary! (as Bob put above)blue

Thanks for all the comments everyone!

Isn't it interesting how sometimes a "chance" picture works out: I took several images of these boats racing each other back into the harbour, and tried really hard to avoid all the industrial stuff (and those tanks in particular), but in the end the only image worth keeping was this one with the tanks!

Torgny: you're right one day these tanks may become classics (strange but true): when I was young all our cities had "gasometers" scattered all round the town. I don't know if the word "gasometer" translates outside the UK at all: but these were really huge gas storage tanks that would move up and down depending how full they were. Very industrial, very much "form follows function" with no attempt to make them pretty, and yet somehow I used to quite like them :-) Nowadays I don't think there's one left anywhere.

Cheers, John.
