This old boat is tied up at Chincoteague island. The shot was taken in the afternoon, with a D70, and a cheap Tamron wide angle, 19-35 mm.

Please share your criticism. I'm not likely to improve as a photographer without heeding the critical evaluations madeby others -- both the others who are well experienced and those yet to be experienced! Thanks.

Although the tug itself looks interesting, I'd like to be able to see the textures in it a little better. Much of the detail appears lost in silhouette.

I might've also lowered the camera angle a little and moved slightly to the left to include more of the tug in the frame.

The seagull adds a good maritime sense to the image, I like that aspect.

Also, the sky seems a little burned out.

Overall, not a bad shot...I'd just tweak it to my own personal preferences.

S.K.

I Agree on this one BUT it has a very nice potential and IMO an excellent 1st post and welcome to the forum Smikey:-)

I agree... it could have (in my crappy opinion) been a tad better if the camera was angled a bit lower, but not a bad shot AT ALL!

and from a semi-newbie to a real newbie...welcome!

I like it. Composition I disagree with the others. I think this is the best aspect of your photo. The composition works for me. You can still play with the levels to slightly improve this shot.

Nice presentation with this shot helps too. A worthy picture postcard and more. The seagull helped you out there a bit :-)too.
