Bass & Law

By GWS  
Taken about 4am on a foggy June morning in the Firth of Forth while out on a 16 hour photo shoot on a friends prawn fishing boat.
Some of the birds look super-imposed , but this is a natural photo, just straightened the horizon (I was in a boat after all) Smile

It shows the Bass Rock from the "dark side" and Northh Berwick Law.

The arrangement of the birds in the air is great, especially the one looking straight at me! Like the general mistiness, too, but a little selective darkening and lightening would perhaps give it the oomph it deserves.... Maybe just a touch of a curve? Cos it is basically great.

I will give those options a go , I took 741 pics in the session, of which I reckon 20 are ok. Stacking the odds in my favour lol ?

I really like this, and the darkness. The birds are beautifully "arranged". Not sure about lightening - it'd be nice to see for a comparison, but I like it as it is anyway.

Very nice shot. Well captured. V2 is my choice as I prefer the colour and increased contrast.

V2 much better, I'm sure that's much more how it looked at the time (though maybe not felt Smile)

V2 for me , sounds like a great day if you don't weaken.

V2, interestingly, looks more natural! It is lovely, and well worth that early start!

V2 for me. The extra contrast lifts the image.
