Oh my goodness!! I received this image in my RSS feed and had to check it out!! Outstanding!! You really captured the moment. Which camera and lens??
D80 with the 80-200 2.8
Very wel done Fred.
love it. great shot
Please don't take this message the wrong way but what is so good about this photo? I have a terrible sense of composition and am seriously artistically challenged but I'm trying to overcome this by looking at good compositions and trying to analyze them. I'm sincerely looking for an answer as help for me.
Bruce, I'm not going to defend my own work, but when you see a beautiful woman, or eat a delicious meal, you might try not to analyze anything. Just enjoy. If you don't, that's fine. I posted it because I liked the saltiness of it.
No hard feelings.
Fred, it's not a matter of defending your work, I'm not attacking it, I accept it's a good photograph, I just want to know what elements make it good and why did you choose to take it. I often take photos that "I enjoy" but they're boring. You may not be consciously "analyzing it" but what are you doing to constantly take good photos while I'm taking mediocre ones.
Love it... how far away were you? The offshore lighthouses around here require pretty long lenses - or a boat trip.
When I was a little boy, my father took me to the Frick museum, and we stood and stared for at least ten minutes at a Rembrandt called "The Polish Rider".
Finally, my father said, "Rembrandt paints a horse so well you can smell it."
I believe art imitates life. And when we do it well, we can feel it breathe.
Hope this helps, Bruce.
I was on a boat using a 80-200 2.8.
Hence the need for speed.
An interesting image. I find it's lacking light, though. Even the auto levels in Photoshop gave it more "pop". Autocolors removed the blue cast on the ship, restoring the green of the containers.
Another thing missing, which I'm always looking for is more information - Where is this? what river? what's the name of the lighthouse?
I did very little PP because the image was so accurate. This is where the Savannah River meets the Atlantic Ocean in south Georgia.
I don't usually agree with "auto color" settings in PP.
Thanks for your coments, Fred
