A clipper is becalmed in the Sunda straights. A pirate lurks near by and is breaking out the sweeps ( oars) to pounce on the clipper. A storm is brewing overhead . Which will hit first ?

my guess is the smaller boat. this is wonderfully done. i can almost feel the wind in the sails.

This is very nice....love the color of the water...the reflections...the storm clouds looming overhead....I vote for the storm :evil:

I like the way the sky blends into the sea.

This is excellent! I agree with surreal--I love the effect of the sea fading into the sea. It creates a gloomy quality that adds to the overall tone of the scene. This reminds me of Howard Pyle in subject and style.
