... well, maybe not quite
Another from down at Heswall the other weekend with Frans camera and before the sun made its last appearance, though there were still some lovely conditions to be had.
Cheers for getting to here
Cheers you lot ... you know who you are
Good sky, Paul.
And, of course, expertly photographed.
I'm not sure that all that f/g is helping the central placement of the boat.
In my opinion a better shot would be a 16:9 or 16:10 crop from the top down. Ok, you'd lose a bit of the mud and the channel, but I think a stronger image would result, actually helping the boat in it's central position - in the full shot it seems accidental rather than deliberate, to me.
An opinion, for what it's worth
A fair enough point Bill, though not really the crop for me as I want that channel in the shot as it's curved shape sort of mirrors/mimics the cloud shape, losing some of it loses some of the association for me.
Also I do like the fact that you can see the actual bottom of the channel with the water in it too - though this I appreciate is only a personal preference.
Well, you are the artist!
I only call 'em as I see 'em!!
Of course had I been there.....
ps where's the fan club today??
LOL ... actually, I did originally shoot this to allow me a 617 pano crop which does work, but I preferred the full frame when I got back home
What fan club's that then?
your early mornings pay dividends
GREAT SHOT. This looks wonderful to me. Well captured Image.
super image well captured
Superb image, brilliant tones
Thanks folks ... Linda, it was late afternoon this time, had a lie-in that day
nice shot lovely sky well captured.
Love the cloud formation and the anger and drama it injects into the image Paul. The central placement of the boats works fine for me because of the dark channel running across the frame. The boat sits comfortably above that obvious lead in element.
think this is my fav from that session.lesley
Nice serene shot Paul a little more subtle than your usual uploads, pleasing none the less.
Agree with Bill on the comp as well.
Another fab shot from the 'riviera'. Beautifully done.
Thanks folks, a right old mixed bag here ... which is nice
Looks a bit gooey....like it though
Been stuck here a couple times
Love that sky hope things are well with you both..
A bit?? VERRRRYYYY gooey Martin, like sitting through an episode of Crossroads
Hiya Ian, things fine with us mate ... hope all's well your end too.
In my opinion, the foreground works very well... If anything, I'd be tempted to crop a shade off the sky - it's very dramatic but I think it makes the shot a little top-heavy as the foreground is so much brighter.
Like the light in this Paul - interesting sky.
Cheers Cathy ... I was going to upload the large pano [cropped] version that I originally envisaged, this would've probably appeased both Bill and yourself by removing parts from both the top & bottom , but seemingly I can't upload a pano if I didn't upload one originally
Thanks too Richard [comment crossed]
Just noticed ... 3 green comments on this one now:
i) Crop the bottom
ii) Leave as is
iii) Crop the top
Subjective business, this photography lark isn't it?!
I know, trying to please all the people all of the time isn't working
