Hi Tom,
Nice pic. of this Red boathouse. The detail in this weathered house is really good. The reflections look great. Nice work.

The red is what grabs me here Tom! Nice work on this, excellent details, love the boats here too! The little one, the big one and the TEENIE one! Really nice reflections on the water too!

hi Tom

It looks as if you have very extended long holidays at northeastern USA and the laid-back style of country living here is always attractive to fish and enjoy seafood. Nice view of old boathouse.

tfs, bill

Hello Tom,

A lovely composition using the portrait style.
The tall building, tall trees and tall mast, all warrant this style.
I have noticed that a lot of the buildings seem to be painted in that maroony red in your shots. Is it a style, or common in a particular region, or just co-incidence?

The dark tones of the water reflect the house and the little boat well. (By the way, three boats make for good composition! They look like Daddy boat, Mummy boat and baby boat!)

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tom,
The slight reflections creating a symmetrical dimension and the positioning of objects made this photo looks quite balance. Well captured and composed with good image quality. Well done! tfs

Beautiful scene from another time-the red wooden boathouse, the green water, the lonely boats....


I like the boathouse but I like better that fine old boat at its right. A lovely composition where boats seems individuals resting at home.
What an interesting place should be Maine!

That tree in the FG gives the impression that it is still autumn here Tom.

Lovely to discover all these nice little corners of our world through your picture.
Nice composition with this higer POV.


hello Tom,

This is a charmer.
Nice composition with the boat tied up alongside.
Lovely soft colours.
TFS, Joni

Hello Tom,

This is a fine composition!
Not only an interesting old boathouse but an interesting vessel too, not so many sailing boats of this kind left and operational...
I can't help the place gives some feeling of being left behind..!
