Bridlington harbour quayside. Given a tint for a sense of the fearsome sea the trawlermen face with each trip.

Fabulous use of colour to add atmosphere to this wonderful image - the thumbnail does this no justice!

beautiful capture. but i think there is a problem of vignette in this image so that the corners are looking black. study this link if possible so that you can better exploit the capacity this amazing lens. although you have done a very good job here. i have a different view (you may not agree) if you had placed the rope diagonally in the frame to lead the eye to the ship, i think it would have been better.

Hope you like it,
somnath

hello Niel
bloomin heck you had funny weather in Brid. Wink

i rather like the composition although i may have preferred to see the whole of the foreground bollard. the perspective is quite striking.

it looks as if you hit everybutton in photoshop to get the effect, whether you could replicate it would be interesting Wink probably for 99 /100 shots this wouldnt have worked and maybe even here its a bit over applied but hey i think it pretty much pulls it off and im finding it quite hard to find anything to rip apart so it cant be all bad.

the more i look , the more i wonder if it would have been better moving a bit to the left and turning to the right to try and cut out some of the buildings on the left side far distance as they are a little bright and distracting, doing so would have placed more attention on to the ship instead of pulling my eye from left top to right. may also have pulled the rope onto a diagonal as mentioned above.

not a bad effort this, i enjoyed looking at it.
Phil

Many thanks for all the c+c.

somnathchatterjee - many thanks for the comment on the compo - the vignetting in the corners was software based, so thats my fault. Cheers.

Newmanp - you're probably right about the steps needed to get the effect altho it was only 3. I'm also a bit a coward over heights and if i'd have moved further to the left i'd have probably fallen in. By the way it was a nice summers day, amazing what you can do nowadays with a few clicks.

Many thanks again to all.

Chaz.

Nice. The Sigma 10/20 is a great lens - I have one, and it demands getting in close with strong foreground interest.

Yes, I like this. Know the spot well.
