Idyllic Mooring

By JCowlan
I found this moored at the bottom of someone's garden, by the looks of the narrow boat it has been there for quite a while which I thought was an idyllic setting with the tree overhanging. Hence the name of the title.

Ive added a canvas effect to the whole picture and a touch of motion blur to the over hanging branches.

Tech stuff:
ISO 100
1/25th sec
focal length of lens set at 50mm.

Good composition James, great colours and I really like the movement you have created in the weeping willow. The canvas effect has created an old feel to this.

Happy Easter to you and the family.

The canvas effect works well on this shot James. The weeping willow gives a good colour contrast to the overall image.
