Two for Jer
Posted By: Jimbo, 03-06-2009, 01:21 PM





Took this shot of this poor boat yesterday. The light was bad but I wanted to show my buddy Jer. I will go back and re-shoot soon under better light. Same picture with one converted to B&W. [just playing around] JIM

A terrific image - note the irony of the obviously old boat carrying (relatively) new radar dome!

Very nice, JIM. I think I like the color one a bit better, but I'm not sure.

JIM, when I opened this thread I saw a good shot, first thing I thought was, it's a great shot actually but I'd like to see it in BW. I scrolled down and voila... you delivered, I love the BW pic, just such a great shot! ... though I prefer composition of the first one...

I thought that was funny too Jer. [newer radar equipment] I don't know how long it has been there but I will go back when there is better light. JIM

Thanks Gus. I do agree with Peter on the B&W look of it though and will change the crop to the same as the color. The sky was blown out with the boat in the shadows. JIM

Is it me or is the horizon tilted?
I'm a bit of a traditionalist and for landscapes, that's the first thing that meets my eye. I feel the colored version conveys the mood better.

Yes it is slightly tilted? Fixing in final PP. Thanks for looking and commenting. I will more then likely re-shoot this under better light soon. JIM

Good suggestion on the filter Javier. Like I mentioned, I will be re-shooting this soon and may take a few different filters. If I do I will post again. This shot has so much potential given the right light and time of day. I don't think it will matter about high or low tide. Thanks for the suggestion. I am still working on the B&W version. JIM

I like the coloured variant. I think at treatment pellicle grain is not enough and a sharp background with modern buildings does not give dramaticness to the picture.
