Weekend traffic

By annettep38  
Many thanks for your honest words about the weird clouds.. Looks like I was wrong about the black and white Smile
After a stressful week we went off to La Rochelle to see civilization. Since Chris preferred to stack up Zzzs I went on the harbour 'bus' boat, to get some shots in spite of the somewhat unsatisfying light. Straight into the 'sun' it actually looked good I think.

Well I hope you like it a bit better than my last upload.

What I like Annette is the horizontal clouds and then the vertical rigging of the craft.Smile

A silvery shimmery sea with a lovely line up of boats.
The light blue streaks across the sky work well with the composition.

**** has it right -- the is the kind of weekend traffic we could all use.
Nice composition. I like where you placed the horizon and the largest of the boats.

This has a weird and rather wonderful quality about it, all silvery and shimmery.

A stunning capture, love the silver grey colours..well done

the sparkling water is fine Annette works well with the layering of the sky

Lovely mood created by the restricted color palette, light and perpendiculars along the horizon axis. It has a graphic yet artistic quality that is very aesthetically pleasing, Annette
Super composition & silvery tones lends itself to an artists palette.. Lovely captureWink

What Lynne said, this is such a wonderfully calm scene which holds great appeal because of the minimal colours

The minimal, almost partially de-saturated colours really work well, Annette. Gives an almost 30's feel to the image.
