Innovative image well presented.  I see some have baulked at the shot, and there is scope for that to happen when most images we see sell the image.  Here you have to buy into the thinking.  You have to think.

And my thoughts are this.  The style is dramatic and it takes a little while to identify the key components.  When you do finally see a boat you've exhausted all the other components and found a medium you are happy to identify with.  Some have raised issues of light, but I tend to think that actually the light components balance the image.  The two bright areas middle left shape the bow of the boat and the light top centre right balances the top of the craft.  The "speed streaks" provide further balance.

Fine rendition, cleverly shot and processed for display.  It really does make one work their own mind.
