Sharp with excellent colors. I love the sunrise/sunset mode on my Nikon Coolpix 8800 it captures the colors the way camera should. Love it great job.

Great composition, and gorgeous color. The leading line created by the negative space between the foreground & background boats invites the viewer out into the water. Beautiful photo! Very well-done. -Michael

it's a very nice and perfectly balanced composition I should have personally reduced the violet tone but it is just my taste

I find the composition original and interesting and the result visually pleasing. A very good piece of work, indeed!

I have another image of this scene that is exactly the same as this but is seen in the more usual orange sunset/sunrise light. In this image I deviated from my usual practice of avoiding automatic scene modes and shot this in sunset mode which gave it this stark but fairly believable filtered effect. I tend to agree with your perspective but, for some reason, this version seems to resonate more with people so I posted this version.

Thanks to you and all for taking the time to comment.

In case you have not noticed I do other work as well.Sounds like real sour grapes to me! Anyway this is a nice shot, well composed.

This is beautiful. I loved Orleans and my drive up to P Town, what a magical place.  Next time, ferry to Nantucket!

What an image. The colors are just breathtaking and the composition is just great.

This one deserves to be a poster.

Good news incidentally Alex. The file has been sent to the lab for a poster print and should arrive any day now.

The colors may be a bit of a stretch from reality, but who cares when it's this beautiful! :-) The silhouettes and their arrangement are very striking.......Bravo!
