Some boats that are past their best, laid to rest on the River Blackwater, a short distance from Maldon in Essex.
Canon EOS 5D and EF 16-35 mm lens.
The boats might be past their best but the shot is top notch.. Great composition and use of light.
That's very kind, Mary. Many thanks.
Just detected some strange artefacts in the sky just above the horizon. Why do these things only come to notice after uploading to EPZ!
Love it. V1 for me. Well done, regards Dan
Aaaah, Ian this brings back many memories for me - I sailed and canoed these waters for many years in my youth - such a peaceful place to spend time...although the sight of vessels in this state always makes me feel a little sad. Your image has given them a life again. I feel you have captured the soul of these waters and shoreline in a fine image.
"Past their best" is putting it mildly ! But they make a cracking subject for a photo, and V1 is a beauty. I think it needs the colour to underline the decay. Nice work.
well composed shot Iain with the boat and wreckage nicely positioned. Lovely sky and light on fg grass.
Cracking composition superbly processed - nice work indeed Ian!
Dan, Mike, Patrick, Yung and Paul - thank you.
The monochrome conversion is excellent Ian and would win hands down if you hadn't shown the subtle colour version as well. Lovely long tones and soft colour, nothing harsh to annoy the senses, just peace perfect peace, well done Sir.
Stunning image. V1 for me. IB
masterful work as always Ian
Wonderful well composed shot Ian, with great tonal quality, colour for me !
If I'd not seen the colour, I would have said mono, but for me the colour edges it!
I'd be happy with either image Ian, both look good to me.
Colour for me.....though the sky looks a bit odd in both of them for some reason
Some of the best views can be local Ian, Landscape POTY open now !! Ron.
I know what you mean about the sky, Martin - particularly above the horizon. That's what comes of mucking about with an image without taking due care and attention!
Might give LPOTY a go this year, Ron -will you?
Lovely shot, Ian. Both work for me but the colour appeals most to me with that beautifully toned foreground.
Paul Rodgers was fantastic, small world. Joe Elliot was dissapointing, all those guitars and no sound order!!!!! Great you had a good time to Roger Waters next ! Ron.
WOW...what a great picture...Just fantastic result!An interesting place indeed!
Like this one Ian hope life is good...
A nice image, i like the composition of the boats in this photo.
