Did anybody else noticed how much the railing looks like a huge, wide smile? Anyways, that's probably one of my favorite parts, I like his leg up on the rail, a nice detail.
I like it

Score: 6 points overall, It kills me that some of the nicest parts of the ship are either hard to see or unfinished. Nice title shot, looks dynamic.7 points for the forced perspective, it's very original and nicely presented. 6 points on the quality of the forced perspective too, the towering bridge in the back came out great. Its still a shame on the unfinished stern, this would be a fun model to revisit sometime in the future. Anyways very nice job on this. 19 points completed score.
OK fine, I confused myself at first by seeing the stacks as part of the bridge. I'll up my score to 18 for the effort. Maybe some smoke or a slightly different focus might have clued me in easier (didn't want to rely on your text description vs. the achieved look).
BTW: I do realize the smoke stacks might be a try at a 3rd scale in the row, but the main pic does not show that very well. They are made clear in the later pic for documentation. A side shot with a narrowing hull would have played that feature up much better.
Score: 7 for build, loads of details, bow, rail, color line, waves, guns, bridge, some listing, very nice; 5 each for perspective originality and effectiveness. You got the basic idea of 2 things at different scales, and it creates a sense of depth. Could up the ante with either a 3rd item at a 3rd scale, or a continuous variation, like a gradually narrowing hull towards the bridge and a slightly angled side shot. Good job in total. total score = 17
5 points for the overall build quality – I like the brick-built bow. 5 points for the originality of the forced perspective – Good idea, I like it. 4 points for the construction of the forced perspective – good. Total score = 14 points.
