Scummy Buoys
Posted By: regken, 01-02-2007, 03:45 PM

Leave a piece of plastic in salt water to long and algae is bound to grow. Cleans off with a little warm water and Clorox.

Regards,

Those been on the bottom for some time?
Could I suggest either or both a tighter crop or step back one pace to get a little more context in the composition?
If you do a tighter shot there is a lot of detail in the seaweed combined with the bouy and rope/snow that could prove interesting.

Clarence,
Couldn't step back. That was the full file. Tried several different crops and I think the one I added to op is the best. What do you think?

"Couldn't step back." Must be at the edge of the dock!

Yes, more gritty look to the assembly. Lots of textural variety. Give it a little sharpening and it should pop nicely.

It looks stunning (a lot of bugs there for sure). Might help turning up a bit of contrast.

You seemed interested in buoys a lot.

roentarre,
Took your advice and reposted the photo. Did I go to far? Almost looks like I shot it with a canon.

The whole lobster industry is what I'm trying to photgraph. This is the time of year the buoys are pulled out of the water so it gives me a chance to get a lot of different colors.
Regards,

Hi Regken. Too contrasty actually. BTW canon colour is usually less contrasty and washed out with highlights. So it is not really canon colour...

Might be just a tad little increase with colour and crop out left side by 1/5 vertically. That might help.

My dad used to do live lobster business in Australia and I used to run chemitry labs for him! It was fun and we used to experiment various ways of cooking lobsters!
