Field of Cowes

By Fefe
Today's upload is a few of shots from Cowes Week, Isle of Wight that I have not got around to uploading.
Two camera's and various lenses and years.... used over the images.......just thought I would give them a whirl.

Massive thank you to all for recent C&C and special mention to Joline for the UA yesterday!

Just also like to say a huge thank you to whoever concerned....I have won the 'Travel Competition' from last month on EPZ and I am absolutely thrilled to bits.......not stopped smiling since I found out yesterday 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

Enjoy the weekend!

Great set, Diane! Lovely to see. Really like v.5, she needs to watch her 100-400mm Canon L lens doesn’t clout the stonework just below it 🙂🙂🙂 easily done.

Lovely shots, Diane. Hard to pick a favourite, although the classic colours of the lead, and the slightly different, human slant on no 5, are strong contenders. Not that long to this year's event, and the Round the Island later this month. Well done on the win; it was a well deserved victory.

Screams for a panoramic crop and a good half stop less exposure, possibly more. Most of the image is sky or water.

A fine collection, Diane, the third of the versions would be my choice of lead. I like the extra verticality.

Thank you Paul, I did consider cropping the sky, but that would have cropped away the interesting bit of sky. I personally like the amount of sea......the yachts were a long way away and I wanted that to come across when I took the shot. I had previously processed this image a bit darker but preferred the image lighter. On a day like this here the sun is very bright on the water.
I have others which I will upload as versions that you may prefer. Thank you for your comment!
