    Horizon is positioned well, contrast is good - maybe a bit too much in the blacks on the boat. Too much water below IMO - I'd crop it so the boat isn't so centered in the frame.

    Water can look great in B&W. I like the dark, ominous sky. That's hard to caputure well. I guess you could try to crop an inch off the bottom. I think that either this needs to be zoomed in further, to see more detail on the boat, or more wide-angle, so it really looks like the boat is tiny, in an endless ocean.

    Just the perfect picture. You followed the 1:3 rule in photography. That is good.

    I tried changing up the contrast and a different crop :)
