On Watch

By BillyGoatGruff  

Another minimalist, off-the-cuff, unplanned shot from Battery Point, Portishead.

Whilst waiting for some enormous container ship to arrive, these guys were doing the same as I: just watching the sun go down.

I quite like the complete simplicity.....

Thanks for dropping in!

I thought minimalist when I saw the thumbnail pic. Good strong image and lovely colours.

Beautiful light n colour on the water Bil and the composition is great. The only I would pick up on is the boat...looks like a light halo/shadow around the boat as if you have gone over it with the dodge tool?

Sharp eyes, Al!

I confess to not having spotted it myself! But now you've pointed it out.......Smile
No dodgng or burning involved, although I did use one of the channels to create a layer mask for use with a lightening curve to bring up the tones on the tug.
It's perhaps a legacy from that - I'll have to watch out in the future!
