Stavanger Harbour

By conrad  
Stavanger guest harbour just after sunset. If you look carefully on the right, you can see the ghostly shapes of a few passers-by (who lingered here and there, which is why they didn't completely disappear despite the long exposure).

Taken with my camera on a bean bag. (No beans in it, just macaroni - does that make it a macaroni bag, or a macaroni bean bag?) Wink

Comments, etc. welcome!

Thanks for looking...

I agree with the above note about the masthead otherwise smashing image.

I immediately liked the deep tones. I like your foreground and lead-in, and the building lights and red on the right give it a real boost. I think that what Cole has done brings out a lot more detail, but removes the deep tones that I was particularly drawn to.

Cole - Interesting mod, thanks. Sometimes it seems like a trade-off, you can bring out the sky more, but sometimes that means more noise. I tried to stay on the low noise side this time. Pamela is right, too - the deep tones are diminished somewhat in your version as well.

Katy & Phil - Yes, I wanted that, too, but somehow using a simple beanbag just didn't allow the angle I wanted, and since you can't use portrait orientation with a camera on a beanbag, it was out of the question that I get the top of the mast in as well, even at 10mm.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!
