This was noticed whilst leaving a a pub at Whitstable and I thought it was worth taking a picture of.

Definitely love the boat, good composition. Not sure at all though about all the light grey round about. Have you converted the shot to b and w and then added the coloour of the boat back in? The problem is that your eyes always get pulled to the lightest part of a pic which in this case is the "foliage" not the boat. So I think it would work better either all b and w or all colour.

Best wishes

Catherine

This may have looked a bit more interesting if you had been lower when you took the shot. However regarding this shot..first of all nice photo, it certainly stands out on the thumb nails and it definatly caught my eye when flicking through. The colour pop just needs altering. If it was my photo I would add some more contrast and lower the exposure. The colour pop just the boat, but lower the saturation a little.

A fascinating image - the grey foliage looks like the bow-wave and spray! Without the wall, the boat would seem to be crashing through the wavesSmile

I'm not much of a fan of selective colour but, after reading Geoff's interpretation of the foliage as spray, I think this is a great idea. But I do think you need to either colour the whole boat or give the impression of something like a pencil sketch that's only partly been painted-in. The amount of colouring needs to look deliberate whereas this looks kind of like you forgot to finish it. I probably wouldn't colour the red bricks, either.

Hi Roger,

I agree with you, I also think it was worth taking a picture of this boat has it does have potential as an image. I can see what your thinking with your selective colouring and as the boat is leaning against the wall why you have decided to leave the brick pillar with colour. But (and there's always a but ain't there) I think you may have lost to much detail in the B&W bits, a more sympathetic approach to processing would have worked better and left more detail. The coloured objects then need to be boosted, even possibly over boosted to make them shout out. In the mod I have not altered the mono sections that much but I have incresed the colour with vibrance to give you an idea what I mean. Of course this is only one way, if you are using photoshop you could try one layer in colour and another in mono and then merging for a more subtle effect.

Roger, you have a good pf with diversity. Well done

Martin

Nice image, very striking, I am a fan of colour popping, but would like to have seen the whole boat in colour, the foilage around the boat, not too sure about, it is very distracting and looks oversharpened (don't quote me on that I could be wrong) and lacks depth all a bit too bleached, I think it is a good arty image though overall and would get my vote Smile
