Marvellous image Stephen, your positioning of the coiled rope as lead - in element is perfect. Great definition, and the water reflections on the hull is magical :)

Awsome. The water reflection creates an interesting effect. The coiled rope, I think creates the link to discover the scene. Good work

I'm so late today that everyone has already taken my comments. Good shot though. The attention to detail by the sailor has really made your shot more powerful.

I LOVE this photo! The reflections of the water on the boat and the spiral pattern of the rope are intriguing and the shot is taken from exactly the "right" spot!
