OK I've decided that I'm not going to let the camera problems beet me.
I will have to work on old material for a while, but the blessing is that I have at last produced a mono I'm happy with.
Let me know what you think. I will get around to looking at a few PF's over the next couple of weeks.
Please give it a chance by peeking at the large version.
Very much better than anything I have done out there....and rather brave to be out there with the tide in
Like your composition and the tones in this - well converted too.
Works for me
The large version is amazing....
A Beautiful perspective and exposure detail and tones.
dramatic, awesome and wonderfull composed...
so much impact.. realy amazing !!!!
A winner in my eye's !
Lovely tones in image espec. in the water. Pity about the metalwork coming out of the wrecked boat. Someone should bend it out of the way or even better cut it off !!
Great shot, really like the composition.
Works very well in black and white.
So dramatic Nick and very glad to see you back.Keep hanging in there.
Great drama, I love it.
Desperately needs an RC. So have one...!
Edit: Too late. Must click quicker!
Lovely tones and mood to this one
Cracking shot!!! Great mono tones.
Love it... very dramatic!
Mono gives this a compelling atmosphere aided by you excellent processing Nick.
Thanks everyone. I'm over the moon how well this has been recieved for a mono.
A very beautiful image wow
Good for you Nick......stay with it !!
Thanks team.. its a big surprise, but for one of my monos to get an award means so much to me. Thanks again
Superb mono Nick and congrats on the HC
Oh and welcome back mate.
Well done Nick.....keep yer pecker up
Cracking mono conversion. Just read about the accident with the D300. Bit of a downer but all the more reason to bounce back!!
This is a superb piece of work, glad you posted it!
Well done on the HC, Nick - - well deserved too
Good to see you're sticking in Nick, and a great monno to come back with. Worthy of the HC.
Thanks for all the kind words. It is really appreciated.
Wow, cracking image.
Looks fab' in mono, like the crop and presentation! HC - my congrat's Nick
Give it a chance? I think this pic is simply fab - the water looks as though it's seething, and stripping the meat off the skeleton of that old boat. That bit of metal sticking up adds to the tension in the twisted hull too.
I like this a lot!
Good angle, well done on the HC although I still prefer the colour version,
top notch love the misty water.
love this pic even the twisted metal
LARGE is unreal mate, well done.
Thanks everyone, really happy with the reception this got. Things must be looking up just got delivery today of the Colormunki won in the Christmas draw - no excuse now not to calibrate the screen.
Welcome back Nick The large version is stunning. Congrats on the HC.
Nice way to come back mate - excellent stuff!
Cracking mono conversion Nick. Love it.
Excellent one of the best I've seen.
Very good mono Nick and the comp is spot on as is the subject interest, the only slight thing that makes me wonder is the well illuminated hull but completely black strip of upright metal, was this intentional or due to ND Grads?
Youre spot on John its down to the grads, not easy to get around it. I got some detail back in the RH of the hull that pokes up, using an adjustment layer set to screen, filled black and then painted back in with with white, however I couldn't drag anything out of the metal strip, partly down to the fact it doesn't have too much detail, I tried everything, curves, dodging, pseudo HDR, anyone with any other suggestions? There is a bit of detail tho in the print.
What I'm quite pleased about is that no one has picked me up on what i've done to the image? (Clue have a look at my last submission)
Just to follow up on the last post, this was taken at the same time (now I've given the game away), this was a true HDR (6 shots 2 shots apart - no grads) so I've covered all the range and theres not much detail - part of the problem is the harsh backlighting.
Well thought out Crit John, marked it as helpful.
To get the detail in the metal strip I guess you could have taken an exposure for the hull and metal then another for the sky and manually blended the two together in PS with a mask layer, I've done it on fairly flat horizons but not sure how tricky with the metal sticking up??
I didn't notice either one as being HDR
I won't be going back at high tide to try, as it was perilous, and after recent escapades I think I will play safe from now on. But I could have done a couple of exposures and masked etc, Idid something similar here
pleased to be 100.lesley
The moody atmosphere and contrast is awesome.
Thanks for all the kind words.
Great work Nick - the conversion is excellent. Congrats!
