Frosty Boat...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...taken with the focus set on the boat and no attempt at depth all the way through, the idea was to see the way focus falls away.

***I've just written my first blog, have a look if you will.***

Gorgeous textures and a sad, wistful falling diagonal.

Sharp all the way on my screen too. Especially the frost nibbling at the tips of my toes WinkBlush
Serene despite the chill.

Very nicely composed, and I like the way the downward diagonal in the foreground is mirrored by an upward diagonal on the distant hill.

I don't know how you find so many still and calm waters Dougie. Do you never encounter a wind or even a breeze up there. Another splendid image.

Your eye for a balanced coherent composition comes through again in this image, Dougie. Here with the limited viewing size its hard to see the sharpness fall off.

Good compo and it is sharp all the way through, like the peeling and the frost on the boat.

Like the frosted texture & the angle of the boat
27 Nov 2013 4:54PM
I cannot see anything wrong with the focus. My eye is drawn to the lovely frost and peeling varnish on the boat.

Really love this Dougie. Very well composed. The shallow dof looks fine on this screen.
Dos'nt look like this boat has been out on the water for a while.

Just detectable the focus drops off (and it's still sharper than some uploads I've seen, please don't get me started!).
I don't see why something like this needs to be sharp throughout, so long as the important part is sharp. In fact it's refreshing to see this approach, looks like Mari has said much the same Smile
All that aside, I like this image anyway.

A great and interesting texture on the boat

Now that's a real corker, Dougie. Superb conditions, great focal point, excellent technical decisions and presentation. Have another badge!
Lillian:: many thanks for your User Award, much appreciated. I would be ungallant and let you get in that boat first. Blush

Alun:: Thanks to you too my friend User awards are very special indeed.
