Thanks Blogitse.

I think this boat must have been newly painted - and the wood re-varnished, it is so bright and shiny. It would be nice to imagine going out in it but it is very, very heavy and I think I would have to be much stronger than I am to get it to go anywhere at all!

Lovely boat and better composition. Awful here today, went out and got nothing.

Lucy Corrander said...

There's time yet, Adrian.

Dull and cold and uninteresting here but I've often been surprised how well some photos turn out in this kind of flat light. Not very inspiring though!

Glad you like the boat photo.

You can't go wrong with boats if you want vibrant colours, your composition is excellent.

As one who does the odd wedding, flat light is a blessing for fine detail on dresses. I have sheets of garden fleece that I use as diffusion screens for my flower photos in bright sunshine.

Gary - you've just introduced me to another blessing in my very happy life - that I don't have to bother with the photographic detail in wedding dresses!

For my general photography . . . I'm very often glad of stark drama in shadows.

If I had to 'do' weddings, I'd probably offer the happy couple pictures with diagonal shadows across their faces. Not sure I'd make much money!

I do the shadow thing anyway, as I said odd weddings! Joking aside, it's a lot less stressful these days with digital (cheaper too). It was scary with my old RB67, 8 shots on a roll of film and 2 days before you knew if the shot came out

I like boats, more in the beach like in the water:)
Great image!

Lucy, all my pictures is real:) I have more 10 or 15 photos to this place, what is an artificial lake beside to Casino Estoril. Palm? palms is what is more here in Portugal, specialy when we live near to the beach (Cascais):)

It's like you cut off the fat and just gave us the meat of the picture. I love the colors and layers.

Love the composition. Just enough to "place/situate" the boat.

Marka said...

This must be one of those new boats. You know, the ones that sail on sand as opposed to water. Cheers!

Hi lucy,
As always, it's not just what you shoot, it's how you shoot it. You are able to pick the defining part of the scene and not include a bunch of things that distract from it.
LOVE IT

Thanks Joyce.

It was a pleasure to photo this boat. A hunk of bright colour on a cold day.
