Shrimping
Lens: DA*16-50 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Waddensea, Northsea ISO: 100 Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Fries, 09-06-2015, 05:32 AM

On a assignment as a cameo journalist I brought my DSLR along. We where actually hoping the shrimpers would catch a shark in their nets. It is becoming more and more a common occurrence and now two of them are cooperating with scientist to find out why. And that's why the journalists where tagging along.

Cheers,

Remco

#3 is really cool for the balance, detail and you caught the gull just right. The sky is awesome.

Thank you! Luckily the clouds did not release their load. It stayed dry.

Excellent shots. The style almost reminds me of professional photographs which were taken back in the late '30's and '40's.

This is like looking at the photos from LIFE magazine. Very astutely done given the challenging lighting condition.

Really like the sense of scale shown in the second and third images, good PP and sharp too.

Thanks! Those kind of photographs can be rather tricky to emulate with the software I have. You got me thinking about photo's of the great J-yachts that where sailing in those times. Those where really beautiful ships!

Thank you! The light was beautiful but as you noticed the contrasts where rather big. Glad you like them.

That is high, and humbling praise indeed. Thank you!

Ha, I must admit that is where I got the idea for the title of this thread. Thanks Dave! I used a mix of tweaks in Color Efex and Silver Efex with some more global adjustments in Aperture (which I sadly will try stop using in the near future.)

Thanks! This was a real opportunity for me. Both for video (whit a sony cam) as for photography although I enjoyed the latter quit a bit more. Between me stepping from the ship on shore and the moment of broadcast I only had two hours of which I used up half an hour traveling... I took some extra care developing the photo's for the archives so we have some illustrations for news about fishing and the sea. The real 'news' photo was a iPhone shot since I couldn't use the the video cam and DSLR in tandem when they showed a real shark for a short time.
