On another occasion where we managed to coax Bill out for sunrise, we met up at Mousehole. Not much in the way of light, but we did get some colour on the horizon in the form of a golden band.

Plumped for summat different ... whether it works or not is up to you, I kinda like it though Wink

Catch up in a bit, just off to meet Fran and have a 'couple' of light aleas Wink

Nice idea, the focussed foreground catches the eye, then the rope draws the viewer further into the shot, well done!

This I like, Paul. The focal point in the fg draws our attention before our eyes are drawn by the blue of the boat and the sliver of golden sky in the distance. Very intelligent ly composed and use of dof. Good 'un.

I like your choice of focussing point and shallow dof. Is that the macro or IF version of lens, and what do you think of it Paul?

Cheers all ... thanks for your time on this one, didn't expect it to set the EPZ world alight ... glad to see I wasn't wrong Wink

It's the macro version Nigel, it's pretty sharp in general, but it does suffer from some contrast and aberration issues when stopped down.

Enjoy your weekends folks,
Paul

Interesting to focus on the seaweed rather than the boats, but it has a certain charm!

Works better this way [for me], with the boats in focus the fg becomes a little obsolete and confusing!!!

17 Sep 2011 - 12:04 PMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

I love limited DOF images Paul, however this doesn't quite work for me. To me there's too much going on the rope, rag/seaweed, boats, headland and sunset, all competing for attention. The boats are not quite out of focus enough for me,

I'm not sure the rag is a strong enough focal point, but I think it would have improved the composition if it was just the rag and rope leading to the boats without the sunset / headland - more abstract. Still I hope you continue with long lens limited dof work, the ones you did of the posts in the loch are some of the best landscape work I've seen, since Andy stopped posting we don't see enough of it on EPZ, and its something I really must try again next time I'm out doing landscapes - just wish I had the nerve to leave the wideangle lens at home.

Thanks mate ... marked that one as constructive, there shouldn't be much problem with it going green.

I can see your point Nick and to a certain degree I do agree with you, but for me the f/2.8 version was a little too soft in the detailed area for my liking and this was the 'happy medium' at f/4, but I do like it none-the-less.

I suppose I could 'adjust' the level of sharpness a little more digitally but again, I am fairly happy with the level of detail retained in the bgnd here. Mainly because [and it's probably just a personal thing] but I can still make out all the Cornish flags adorning the main boat, going a little softer would lose that and then it could just be any old harbour, and not Mousehole and/or Cornwall ... as mentioned though, probably just a personal thing as nobody has mentioned it until now that is Wink

Cheers for your time though fella, you know I appreciate it!!!

Paul
