That rope is very popular it is appearing every where lol. the fishermen at Hastings Sussex use it a lot also!, perhaps it is impervious to salt water, like the creels very Maritime looking, nice classic photo, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

An interesting image showing a local type of creel.
Shot in bright light the highlights are on the bright side but detail still mostly there.
Good selective focusing showing the detailing on the nearest.
Composition is OK but have a look at my second mod where the image is reversed. I feel my eye is better led there.
I've also tried to reduce the highlights and lowered the green sat a little.
I have enjoyed seeing your photos from the Inner Isles,
Ian

Hi
I used Photoshop CS6. - image - image rotation - flip canvas horizontal.
I guess you can do this in PS Elements and also in GIMP which is free and very useful software.
It generally considered ok to flip images so long as there is no writing or is not of a well known scene, i.e. putting Big Ben on the wrong side of Westminster Bridge.
regards
Ian

You did try to anticipate the brightness with the -1/3, good thinking, however, after the fact it looks like -2/3 might have worked better. Just check the histogram view on your LCD and you can make adjustments on the fly.

Nice colourful shot. Composition would be improved by having the space on the right rather than the left, as in the mod.

Colours are over saturated, - you may have used a vivid mode, or cranked them up in post processing. be careful when you do this that you have a calibrated monitor, or you may not be seeing the colours and tones accurately.

Anyway, - a wall hanger in a fishing pub, - even in mono which I will have a go at.

I think I would have gone the full stop under then brought the shadows back a bit with the dodge tool. I would also have been at f5.6 or f8 to use the lens sweet spot. No need for such a wide aperture here.

It seems to me that a lot of people buy standard 50mm lenses just to use them at near full aperture for some reason.

Regards, Donald.
