I love it! Minimalism in bright colors, not something you see every day. A little Gurkha, a little Freeman Patterson. I think you framed it just right, with the exaggerated sky dominating the image and the tiny boat sailing in the distance over on the edge of the frame. Good one Matt.

Steve, I left it there deliberately as a counterweight/counterbalance to the boat. And I thought it gave a sense of proportion and scale to the scene. You? Matt
