Tranquil reflections

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you to all who voted and commented and especially to Kate (IrishKate) for her UA, so chuffed.
Today's image is another scene from our Marina and the bigger picture of yesterdays gold and black reflections...
Have a nice day, I hopefully get my car back today....Grin

Have decided to upload V2...its a shot captured with my I phone yesterday morning around 7.40am while walking to an appointment...a cruise ship appeared through the orange sunrise fog

Two great shots. I love the tranquil reflections of V1 and the golden atmosphere of V2 is wonderful.

Two completely different images each with their own merits, however it is number two that really caught my eye. Beautifully composed and exposed...

Two well executed and composed images, V2 being my favourite, just goes to show that it is the photographer that is the most important factor, not the equipment.

And what a fine shot from your 'phone.

You are wrong. Yesterday's was a totally different image where I had concentrated on zooming in with the camera. Yesterday's one was zoomed into 140 mm today's focal length is 18 mm. The times are 10 mins apart as well. Yesterday's was a full frame image not cropped at all.

You're getting good at these - both lovely low light images.
V1 is subtle elegance and V2 has a feeling of being at one with the elements - beautiful colour.

2 super images Colleen, Love v2, that ship appearing through the golden haze. Very nice.
V1, a beautiful image but i got a little side tracked by the boats, either of the first two would do,
Would keep me amused for hours SmileSmileSmile

Great shots, very nicely captured and presented.
8 May 2014 8:00PM
Two wonderful shots Colleen. Love them both but has to be V1 for me, gorgeous GrinGrin

Two stunning images, Colleen. v2 is my fave.

V2 is one of the best images I've ever seen taken with a smart phone and surely deserves an upload in its own right sometime
