All nominated are absolutely stunning. Congrats for that alone to all. Truely isn't one I dislike. So much so that I think it is going to be #1 for me. But I wait a moment before casting my vote definitely, cause I think my head is just clogged up from all these beautiful pictures.

# 13 seagulls on a boat is my first choice. I must add, what an impressive collection of wonderful photos.

I picked number one. It looks closest to a film photograph. It don't have that digital feel to it. How can I put it into words. It had a more natural feel to it. Yeah that's what I'm trying to say and I'm a film only guy and I tend to choose stuff that looks like looking through the naked eye.

Truly fabulous submissions. Each evoke such different emotions and places in one's memories and imaginations.

I enjoyed the "Ice Cream" boat, but didn't vote for it. I like the imposition of action as part of the depth of field.

I had to go with Europa

It was a difficult choice. From no. 1 through to the final choice, but I decided to go with Europa. #12 in the list. Maybe because it looks so different as a working vessel, than when I photographed her in 2009 as a tour boat visiting Halifax, Nova Scotia.

This is the first contest in which I really like most all the entries. I voted for XX because of this and that.

Number 4.

Number 4. It's a tough choice since every pic has it's own story and reason to win. I chose number four because it's a tall ship and the pic is beautiful.

Once again a tough nut. A fine collection of great photographs and after many viewings over several days, i have narrowed my choices to 4.
Numbers 1, 10, 11, and 12.
All evoke feelings of differing intensity but one in particular kept drawing me back. So this has ultimately been my choice.
Congratulations to all finalists.
Best of luck in the judging.
