The skeleton seems frozen in a strange position, I wont say what it looks like he was doing when he past away, I'd suggest bending a few limbs?
other than that, it looks very cool.

Thx for your post and also for your advice.
it is interesing to imagine what he was doing in that fatal moment...
in the final picture, it will see just the left hand and a small part of the skull.
I put all skeleton in the boat for make me sure that it is the right proportion.
I hope it will be ok

Much better! I really like the moodiness of the image. The only thing that bothers me is that diagonal line that goes out the lower left hand corner of the picture and the dark dot just before the line starts. There's no reason for a line or a shadow to be in these spots. Easy fix in Photoshop. Just a suggestion.

I don`t finish the picture. I think to add a far island in the background. I`m going to put some details on boat (like grunge or rust)

Pinica - I like this image much better. I like the shadows much better. I don't think that you need any background island. My only small critique would be the fog that you added. It kind of takes away from the moodiness of the first picture you posted. Could you possible give it a slight bit of color to make it look like the sunrise/sunset was influencing it? Maybe a little more transparent too. I really like the feeling of lonliness that the first picture evokes because the sea gets lost at the horizon.

I need to put something on the right of the shot for to balance the picture. I thing to create a “visual diagonal” which it getting started to the boat and it keep going on the left, toward something. That`s the point.
I modified the fog and I modified the color balance and the lighing, too. I hope it is OK.
Thx for your suggestions. They was very useful !
