Again Isabel, I go with my "first" impression. This one struck my as a bit "Busy" but has some saving grace :) I love the drama of the clouds and the sepia like color od the print. Ansel said once, "if you need to shoot color, put something red in the picture"! I like the red ball!
I don't know how or where this was taken but wonder if you could have moved around a bit to get a better angle.
Focus looks tack sharp.
You seemed to have mastered the use of your camera controls.
I love what you have done with choosing the color, it does indeed remind one of Caspar David Friedrich's work.
Perfect, you want everything in this type of photo to be in focus and it is.
I really like all of the detail this photo provides and especially the color and the subject. Your work has a genuine powerful evolution that I see as a dramatic way for you to express your visualization.
How to improve your photo
As I said earlier, I get a little uneasy with all of the "Midground" business but don't know if you could have used a different position to get rid of it. I would like to have seen the ship more isolated to bring the complete center of interest on "it" and not the clutter.
It's hard to tell here but you might burn down the water to the left of the ship that looks just a tad blown out.
I'm wondering if you could have gotten down closer to the water? This would raise the ship above the clutter maybe just enough.
