    I like this shot and the caption on the boat that relates to your title. The whole image has a dreamy quality.

    That said, it's a confusing shot due to the boat on the top of the image that is trying to steal the show because it's a bright element .

    When a photographer titles a shot, the viewer is apt to look for the reason for the title. For this image, IMO the most interesting part of the shot is the boat at the top left and yet it is NOT the reason for the title. Also something in this shot should be tack sharp (probably the wording on the bottom boat) and to my eye nothing is tack sharp.

    Hope that helps,

    I like this image, it's a clever idea, however I also agree with the above comments. I think what might make a more powerful statement would be cropping the top just enough to eliminate the farshore and the boats. That would remove the distractions and also add to the emptiness alluded to in the name of the boat. Well spotted though!
