Another from my recent trip to Dungeness with Trev/twordley and Ian.
Again out of my comfort zone and trying mono! Thanks for your time, your thoughts/comments are always very welcome.
Regards - Sarah J x
Love the lead in lines of the trackes crossed by the rope then into the boat. Good mono.
Out of your comfort zone, I don't think so Sarah. A very strong composition and the mono conversion is excellent.
I'm just sat at Euston Station waiting for the train home and saw an advert for Leeds Castle on the tube, don't suppose the picture could have been one of yours???
Wonderful sense of desolation. I think maybe you've found a new comfort zone?
Thanks for your kind words - I really am never sure when working in mono honestly, but should learn to trust my instincts I suppose.
Darren re the Leeds Castle image - I don't know but it could be, would be nice if it was
A classic black and white composition and a great use of the wide angle lens.
Love it in mono. Gives it such a lonely mood............Sandy
A beautiful image the composition strong and converted so well nice contrast to it Colin
Super shot and conversion Sarah.
good mono bringing out those textures Sarah
wonderful tones and textures love the shadows brilliant mono nice one
Just the right lens for this type of conversion, it adds great lines to the smashing set of tones and textures... Dave
Great lead in and works so well in mono Sarah, top work
Great lead in and composition. Lovely mono. A
This had to be mono Sarah, a little too much going on in the foreground for colour I guess. Works a treat in good old black and white though.
welcome to your new comfort zone Sarah !!! ,lovely image in mono ,lovely lead in to the boat
good work ........ollie x
A very nice mono.
I think mono works really well here Sarah, and gives the image a timeless quality. Love the perspective sharply defined by the tracks.
Wonderful...... what on earth would you do/do you need with a 10 stop!?
Sorry to be out of sync with everyone else Sarah, but Im not convinced!
The big issue for me is that large shadow on the RHS. I suspect it's a nearby boat, but it draws the eye. I wonder, that instead of using both rails that perhaps you could have just used the LH rail thus avoiding the majority of the shadow.
The rest of the comp is excellent and you've processed it well. I think that there is still more contrast in there that you could have brought out, but it's still very eye catching.
Sorry to be the negative one!!
Works for me Sarah, good tones and details.
Thanks everyone for your time and comments
Dave no problem - your honest opinion is really appreciated! I quite liked the darker shadowed area, thought it balanced the image slightly but am happy to be corrected. I think I may actually have some more with just the left hand rail will check that out - more contrast... hmm think I agree
Mono works well here Sarah.
Like it Sarah. Black & white works for me.
Excellent shot,I am not a lover of b&w but this really works.
Thank you gentlemen
Given the contrasty lighting and the lack of detail in the sky - the mono conversion was probbly a good choice.
The rails give a good lead in (and I don't mind the shadow in the foreground in the mono image).
The boat is well placed, and looks nice and moody. However the sky is showing a little banding on my screen - is the orignal file OK?
Thanks Matt for your comment. Yes I had noticed that too after I'd uploaded the image. The orginal file looks fine so no doubt down to something with my processing I'll try again though later and post if I get it right
A BIG thank you Pete for the HC
omg how did i miss this .. great work and congrats on the HC
Real like the comp Sarah and it works well in mono. Huge congrats on the HC
Beautifully composed with a great lead in.
Good conversion Sarah, subject well suited to mono. Congrats on the HC.
Just wanted to add my congratulations on the HC. Well deserved both for the extra atmosphere mono gives and stepping outside your comfort zone. I often find taking a risk on a photo shoot gives interesting results and opens up possibilities.
This capture is what prompted me to convert one of my Stade pics to mono and experiment with the processing.
Would be great to meet up at Hastings or other interesting venue as suggested. Meant to mention I've got comp tickets for many of the heritage attractions in Kent - will discuss when we next speak.
Have a good weekend
Dave, Les, Andy, David and Viv - thank you very much!
Viv - thank's for your congrat's! I was really pleased with the HC as I do always question my mono work! Glad to hear you experimenting too, liked your mono very much - will call you next week
Well done you x
Congratulations on a well deserved HC sarah.
Pete and Yung thank you very much
Congratulations on the well deserved HC Sarah.
well done Sarah , looks super
I like your point of view - leads your eye directly to the boat!
Looks a cracking bit of mono work to me, Sarah - I'd be more than happy with this. Excellent viewpoint and the rails make a great lead in towards the boat.
like this shot great work love it
Thank you very much for your kind comments
Really good mono,
nice tones and good composition.
Very well taken.
