Could This Be The Most Perfect Classic Boat Photograph Ever Taken?

While cruising through countless boats for sale on my weekly journey of frustration I came across this little charmer at The Antique Boat Center… Whats cool about this photo is how simple it is and yet says it all. No fancy angles or dramatic lighting. Its just simple. Like the boat. The lack of stuff that distracts the eye. The clouds are flawless, the water has just the right texture. Even the drivers shirt is the perfect technocolor red. The splash from the cutwater is perfect down to the last drop. There is a “George Stubbs” quality of focus on the object that is wonderful to behold…OK that’s enough art for the day. Hope this makes up for calling those lamps art…I am going boating! It 80 degrees.. Woohooo, pass the soda pop.

    Now you are talking or showing. Who would not enjoy a picture of their favorite wood boat underway with you in it. The dream lives on. That what art is meant to do. Inspire. Thanks

    Matt, great art, beautiful boat but how did he find a place on that amazing lake that allows the stern flag to flow so freely while the bergee is hanging so limp that you can’t read it?

    Al, you are right, I left it as orig and thought no one would comment. It looks like it got caught up in a flip flop.. I fixed it and took a Garwood flag i had… Its less distracting… Now its the most perfect photo/Illustration ever done…
