Not Tonight, Josephine.

By NexusImages  
Afternoon All,

Hope your Monday mornings weren't too much of a shock the system. Long time since my last upload. I've had a fair bit of personal/family stuff to deal with. I think I'm over the worst of it now. Huge thanks to those who have kept me in one piece, you know who you are. As for the pic, it's one from the archives that had been overlooked. Think I quite like it. Not too in your face but not to dull either (well I think so! Smile).
Thanks for looking, and as always, comments and crits are very welcome.

Great shot - I just wish the horizon was level - I know it's really nit-picky, but I think it would have made all the difference. Will upload a mod to see what you think.

Danny, I know just where you are coming from, as wonky horizons get my goat something wicked. I spent a few minutes debating the true horizon of this image before I resized for web. As you may have guessed, I chose to leave it as it was. This was due to the terrain at the shore being very uneven, with gully, slope and rise in many places. The green bank on the right is actually the other side of the waterway, it rises and falls as it goes down the estuary. There is no real way of knowing which is the true horizon but if you feel that it looks out (and there is nothing to contradict that), then I am confident that other folk will think it looks out too. Shame as I have just sent this one to go on to a canvas for the gallery! I thank you for your input as many wouldn't speak their thoughts. I also thank you for your time & mod of the image. I really should use a spirit level thing!.

I actually didn't level it completely out, as it looked slightly forced when I totally squared it off, so if you check it against the address bar (by scrolling down to the horizon) you'll see there's still a little slope - it's just less noticeable on my version than yours.

What I would say is - if you're enlarging photos for display, canvas is a really expensive way to ruin a great photo - have you thought about using acrylic? We use acrylics for all our clients, and have loads on display in the office, and they are so much nicer than canvas.

Anyways, still a wonderful pic. well done.

Thought I'd not seen you around on here for a while, Mand. A cracking shot, love that 'crazy paved' foreground! And the horizon looks fine to me!
