When the tide goes out in the Arcachon gulf, it leaves only a few pools of water and a mass of muddy, sandy banks. Mornings often have a steamy atmosphere, and leaden blue-grey skies. I took this shot on a Pentax LX with a diffusion filter on the lens to add to the misty effect and the transparency was then scanned and Photoshop used to remove a smaller boat near the moored one, and to rotate the remaining one 180 degrees so the bows lead into the picture. Various PS fx were used to create this painting effect. This is better seen as a canvas print rather than on screen. Unfortunately I've lost the shot notes but do recall it was with the stunning A* 135mm lens - bit daft to have such a sharp optic and then to fudge the image!
