Yes, there are two center of interest !
Yes, there is a strong enough "subject" on the left to make it a powerful composition.

No need for that distraction on the right ?
Yes, no need as it is !

The disturbing element is not the boat in my understandings: it's all of the unidentifyed (and cropped ) stuff around it ! ( or maybe it is just that cropped box ...).

Just digitally erase it with sea parts and I will perfeclty agree with scaramouche about how complex and really intersting the composition of this picture really "could be".

A good shot though, pavaros !

i ve considered all your comments and came up with this:



i know i ve rushed it a bit, but what do you think, is it better with no platform behind the boat and less "yellow"?

I like the second version. Wish I could get my Black and white photos right. I seem to have trouble adjusting them on the computer at times.

This new interpretation is admirable also! I especially like the color.
The increased separation of values has added to the three-dimensional feel and shifted the balance a little away from the abstract, more toward the realistic, but very subtlle. With respect to the boat area, I find both work well with a major difference in the effect of the associated negative space.

Ultimately, I think that deciding which works better will have to be judged by viewing and living with prints.

Hope this helps.

I think the composition of second picture works very well, slightly less yellow, and less cluttered space around the boat. The first picture which was darker I thought had much more impact in terms of treatment.

I like the treatment and commend you on trying to develop your own style that helps show the subject matter in a more “dramatic” perspective. Noticed this on several of your postings.
