Very nice indeed Stan, and with the XF16-55mm too
Cool shots! And tricky, too!! Would never have occurred to me!
Thanks, Bob and Peter. I notice this fish-eye refraction effect when cleaning up the lens.Very nice and clever shot I honestly never even realised it was possible to do that.
Holding your hand steady and the shot, spot on. Like both of the pictures ! Favourite has to be the second one
Thanks, Chris and Mandy. I was two minds about which to pick as the main photo. I opt for the 'lighthouse', actual it was a harbour control house and now a commercial office, because of the interesting building. I appreciate the boat is more favourable because of its fewer distractions and the dash of orange.Unusual take on theme. Agree with Dave about the lighthouse showing on the top,of the lens in first image. Still a good image. Second image is much better and as others have said orange makes it stand out.
Thanks, Gareth. It's quite easy to turn the boat around, just a few steps of; make the selection, transform and rotate.Great idea, and expertly executed!
The first image is superb, very creative and well composed.
I think I'm with Dave @-Oy- however, the splash of colour really makes it for me.
I'm nit-picking though, all three are excellent and are certainly on point for the theme!
Nice bit of photo-shoppery on the third image btw!
Many thanks, Jon for all taking the time to stop by and comment I appreciated itNew is a cracking shot.
Clean is great too, love the water off the ducks back.....
Open is really clever, great idea and very well executed.
Three excellent shots to kick off 2019, great stuff.
Cheers, Tim. I'm happy with the first one too.First one for me Stan, because the lighthouse fills the frame more than the boat, plus you can just about make out the OOF lighthouse outside of the lens.
Thanks, Dominic. I haven't done any cropping in the second shot just turn the boat around.Open
To be honest I prefer the second pic, I was going to suggest a tighter crop on your first shot, but you've have done that in the second.
Cheers, Allan.I agree with Dominic the second on without turning the image it makes more sense to me, if you see what I mean.
I thought I had already replied to your 1st 2 images, but apparently not, so here goes.
New, what a cracking sunrise, lots of nice colour against the dark clouds. Trees give a nice frame and provide scale.
Clean, what a super shot of that Mandarin, every thing is nice and crisp and clean. Nice one Stan.
Open, very clever image Stan, how you got it so sharp in the lens, Not that I have tried. I prefer the 1st best, but the flipped ship looks better than the unflipped one, possibly as you are expecting it the right way up.
That's a clever and original idea for Open, Stan, and it's interesting to see your thought process through the three images. Both scenes work well but I just prefer the image with the boat as the background is slightly less complicated and the splash of bright orange really catches the eye. I prefer the upside-down image #2 as that's how I would expect to see it, but the post-processing is spot on.
Thanks, Dave. I converted the shot to mono to fit the black & white technique and also lack of colours because of the weather conditions.Just got back in my self and weather is bad here too.
Distant is a very well taken image Stan, like that i`ts in mono and sharp from front to back.
Sorry Stan, but unless you had permission from the signalers controlling that section of track, or perhaps you had a legitimate reason to be on the line and had lookouts posted, then taking that shot is not something that should be condoned.
Sure, there may be no scheduled services for 3 hours, but who's to say there isn't a light engine / engineering train that you're not aware of?
A live line is a live line.
( I do like it though )
