Thanks for kind comments on yesterday's shot. This is looking the other way, with some nice light in between showers.
I waited for the boat to move into a good position but to be honest I don't think it adds to much to the composition. If only they had been more considerate and come in a bit closer to the right!
Taken at the longer end of my 17-40mm. I've been a bit of an ultra wide junky and want to try to explore more with longer focal lengths of landscapes.
Thanks for looking.
PS - please see v2 for alternate crop.
PPS - That's not a halo to the right of the tower. It has a white line on its side!
Good captures and nice light like it
I like both your versions....what wonderful light and those great clouds. I think the boat does add a certain charm to the overall picture. Wonderful photography
Light is magical here. Great shot.
V1 for me
these are some really fine colors.. as though painted as per photographer's choice..
beautiful image and lovely comp..
V1 for me Steve, excellent photography
How selfish some people are I love the contrasting colours between the sky and sea; the composition is great regardless as to where the boat is and the real clincher is that it could have been taken in any decade over the last 80-100 years.................. A lovely classical composition.
Excellent shot with good light, colours, etc, and well composed with such strong lead in lines: I think your crop at V 1 does work slightly better too,
Both excellent Steve but V2 is stronger in my opinion. Getting a little closer and placing the LHouse closer to the centre means that the rail is more prominent and leads the eye a little better.
One stunning image to stunning variants. Image two for me please "Superb photography"
Thanks for your comments everyone, much appreciated.
Steve that's fantastic. I'm torn between the two crops. I prefer the sky in the full version and like seeing both islands but the tighter crop does work also in terms of the railings and lighthouse placement. Yes the boat could have further over to the right but that doesn't really detract from what is a hugely satisfying image!
The skies we've enjoyed recently do serve to remind us what lacklustre crap we have to put up with 99% of the time
Thanks Mike. I like both the crops for the reasons you describe. I've just processed yet another version, with the boat in a different position, which I may upload some time.
When the light is this good I want to get it right !
