Shipwrecked on the Isle of Wight

By petemasty
My first attempt with my K20D . Was over on the IOW and decided to to get used to using it and did some composition shots. Shot with the Mk1 18-55mm lens. By shear luck the missus was in the frame and so decided to keep her in it to give a sense of story to the picture.

The shot has been sharpened with a slight change in exposure settings. Your comments are gratefully received.

A clever idea, Pete, the title suggests that your wife is the shipwrecked person and the large area of pink sky gives it a desolate feel. Your wife looks quite small in the picture and, although this does add something to the atmosphere you were hoping to create, I'd like to have seen her closer to the boat and a bit larger. By being closer to the boat, she would be looking out at the blank area, instead of looking out of the frame, as she is now. The more I look at this, the more I like it, and it's probably because it breaks a few rules and is quite different.

cheers Jean. I'm flattered by your comments. If only I could get the wife to do as she is told. Once in a while would be brill. I take your point regarding her position in the shot. Being a complete beginner all such critiques are very helpful indeed
