Ship Overgrown!

First Photo uploaded!

I spotted this abandoned boat in a back garden in Corfu. There was other junk nearby which meant a tight composition and the tree branches overhead made the original shot quite dark and flat. I have played around with levels here and there and warmed it up slightly.

Welcome to EPZ.

A nice shot for the first upload.

You are already aware its a little tight in the frame as you cropped lots off, - nevertheless its quite nice.

I have suggested cropping it more square, with some off the top, and a little more contrast in my mod. Also sharpened slightly, - you need to do this after you re size and before you upload.

Hope this helps,

Hello, Chris, and I too welcome you to EPZ. I like the poor neglected boat, being taken over by nature. In editing, you have achieved some warm tones in the background, and the boat has nice detail. It's a pity the conditions didn't allow you more space around it, but I have uploaded a modification for you, where I have added a little canvas either side and cloned in some foliage. See what you think.

Thanks both for looking at this, glad you liked it.

Willie - I'll remember the tip about sharpening.
Pamela - I didnt think about cloning as it all looked too messy but you have done a great job.

Thanks again
