I do not know why, but faded paintwork, rotting wood etc., has always fascinated me!
So finding this old hulk of a boat rotting away in the corner of a boat yard, immediately caught my eye.

I wanted to give the impression of an abstract by cropping it in this way, so that all the colours and textures were prominent.

We were spectators at the Half Marathon in Exeter, so we had a little time between laps to take in the scenery.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Jean

Yes I think its sailing days are over but the textural details & colour shifts & nuances are intriguing. Good sharpness & nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue & red with effective tight framing. Tfs!

Hi Jean,
Yes, I like these textured surfaces! They attract my eyes as well. You managed to produce quite an abstract presentation of rotting wood and faded paintwork. Good light management and a fine tight crop which I like.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Dear Jean,

I have been to Exeter 3 years ago and I like the city.
This is an abstract work where you managed to show great details. The colors make this work so special in its appeal. The light and exposure are well done.
Good job!

Kind regards,

The title should be "beyond budget", because repairing it would be priceless. ;-)
I like this image too. There are a lot of colored details. Good capture of it. Every 'scarve' has its own story.

Good Morning Jean.

Im running late with my points, i seem to run out of them so quickly these days that i am having to look at images a day late now...never mind, im here now.

I too like to see the artistic view in old things such as worn paintwork or rust on metal, there is a usefull feel about the texture of what was once. So this image of yours is going to appeal to me. I think the pastel type colours are very attractive, i may have even cropped closer, but then thats me. Your choice of framing is a compliment to the presentation also, welldone Jean. TFS.

Stv :))
