The Boat

This is gorgeous Ian... POV, lighting, texture, contrast... simply gorgeous!!! I love this a great deal. Maybe I'm a conventional man.:-)

@hugo poon: Hi Hugo...it's the elegant curves on the prow of this boat that made me want to take this particular photo.

Bernhard from Austria

Simple, but great motive and shot. Hardly to find a motive like that in our country, may that is the reason why i like it so much.

Greetings from Austria

@Bernhard: Thanks Bernhard...the beaches around the UK make for a real treasure trove for any photographer.

Jim from United States

Excellent, Ian...a nice sweeping wide angle, with perfect light and great tones. The B&W makes it work.

25 May 2008 6:58pm

@Jim: Thanks Jim!

paulski from Muncie, IN, United States

love the perspective here; great capture...

25 May 2008 8:28pm

@paulski: Thanks Paulski!

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

Wow...two very distinct but different images from the same subject. I saw this before the previous one and was struck by the perspective. great shot.

25 May 2008 9:46pm

@Ted: Thanks Ted....they were both interesting to do but the light was a bit flat when I was taking these photos which made the processing more difficult on this version.

amy from Rocky Mountain House, Canada

I don't think you're being fair to yourself to call this conventional. It's an image that works brilliantly... when you've done it right. And you have. Many haven't.

25 May 2008 9:47pm

@amy: Hi Amy...perhaps non-experimental would have been a better description then. Thanks!

Chris/Aperture Image from United Kingdom

Splendid image Ian

25 May 2008 10:08pm

@Chris/Aperture Image: Cheers Chris!

Luis A. De Jesus R. from Mexico City, Mexico

The manner of cropping in this one makes it more powerful and demanding of attention than yesterday's photo. That one is really good in its own right, but this is way better.

25 May 2008 10:08pm

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Thanks Luis....the composition on this one is certainly more direct and punchy compared to yesterdays.

JoeB from Brampton, Canada

I like both, it just shows how you can work an image differently. The colour is muted it emphasizes the rust, the B&W shows more the shape and great angle.

25 May 2008 10:08pm

@JoeB: Thanks very much Joe!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

Yes, JoeB is right in what he says. I like this one, because it does show the really great angle you shot here to its best advantage.

25 May 2008 11:00pm

@Viewfinder: Thanks for that Glenn!

John Maslowski from Dallas, PA, United States

Great angle and perspective. Love the B&W, brings out the details and contrasts. Great job composing this shot.

26 May 2008 3:42am

@John Maslowski: Thanks John!

dan from Paris, France

Très élégant ! Very nice !

26 May 2008 7:11am

@dan: Cheers Dan!

Enrique Vidal from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

I really like the composition of this one. Taking the picture from a low perspective gives the bow of the wreck a very "important" look. Nice BW too.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Ohhhhh! This one makes such a statement! I feel like letting my imagination flow, think about the waters it plied, and the dangers it was confronted with, and the many hands that touched its sides in good weather and in bad, and the bounty of fish it might have carried one time or almost nothing at otehr times! It deserves to rest and rust and turn to dust! But...as you see...even retired it serves some purpose!

26 May 2008 2:08pm

tom from Frankfurt, Germany

Another great one. Again, I like the composition.

26 May 2008 8:07pm

ocorti from Blonay, Switzerland

Superb ! I love it. all the best.

26 May 2008 10:02pm

Jeff T from Milwaukee, United States

I like your choice of perspective, and the toning is great too.

29 May 2008 12:31pm

GJC from Kyoto, Japan

I don't know that I'd call this conventional. To me, the "negative space" in the previous one didn't have quite the compositional strength that it normally should. I also thought the color was slightly distracting, whereas in this one you have fine control over the light. The angle and composition are particularly good here.
