    Strengths:

    An emphatic interpretation of the theme.  Excellent point-of-view to see the triangles so clearly.  The repeating shapes ad energy.

    Suggestions:

    Difficult light.  The foreground / subject is dark, but not dramatically so.  Enough light to see shadow, but still, the eye travels past the triangles to the sky.  For this theme, it might have been better to sacrifice the sky for the sails.  Consider different exposure with the sky blown out, or the sails as silhouettes.

    Strengths:

    Repetition of triangles fits the technical aspect of the theme. Some warmth to the light.

    Suggestions:

    Since the focus of the image is the sails, the sky doesn't add a lot of interest to the image, especially the upper portion.  I think the effect of the repeating pattern would be enhanced if the top portion of the frame were cropped to just above the mast tops -- the image would become more of a panoramic aspect at that point, emphasizing the pattern of sails.

    Strengths:

    Triangles galore - inverted and upright

    Strengths:

    Nice repeating pattern against the sky. 

    Suggestions:

    Might have tried making the sails darker and sky lighter to add contrast.
