Royal Daffodil

By Anthony      
A shot from the other night.

I was standing at Secombe Ferry port, watching the sun going down against the gorgeous Liverpool skyline. The light was creeping its way up the building, and I waited. Eventually it go to the top, and the sky behind make it stand out beautifully. And then, along came the Royal Daffodil, one of the famous, Ferries across the Mersey. Well, I just had to include her in the shot, it would have been rude not too.

I have done very little to this, apart from remove some cranes from the background, boosted contrast and about a 5% increase in saturation. Otherwise, pretty much a straight shot.

What do you think of this then?

Beautiful light. I think th only improvement would be if you had taken a fraction earlier so that the ferry would be entering into more space and not quite so central. Nice one.

Just another thought about the position of the ferry with relation to the buildings. It also hides, just, the horrible white Sea Cat. You can still see just the very tip of it there, but if the ferry was anywhere else in this shot, it would be a huge blatant white thing. Smile

Thanks again to you all for the kind words.
