    Revisit to a near sunken shimp trawler.

    Kind of felt like the first post of this was too blue and had too much background clutter, so I reshot it yesterday and did some fine tuning.

    I like the blacks and blues in this image they stand out strong when I click on the lightbox. The reflection looks busy if I only look at it but when I look at the whole image it works great. When ever I try a shot like this it doesnt work , Thats a strong image Chris.

    As James states the blacks and blues really stand out, for me way to strong. The dark area in the ULHC needs to be lighten up to balance the right hand side, I brought the rust on the boat up to help it stand out a little more as I think that it helps to add a sense of decay and finally a layer mask to give the top side a greater look of the sun bleaching out the woodwork.

    It's a nice edit but within ten minutes of me shooting this image, the sun was long gone and for my eye knowing how the scene was originally set, your edit is too "bleached" for the time frame. I have been known to manipulate an image or two...or three, but in most cases, I try to stay true to the original setting. There is an image on one of the mini-comps of a sunrise, bridge, great clouds...and the clouds were shot on the same day, only across the other side of the bridge. While I did "borrow" those for that shot, I still stayed true to the time frame.

    My blueness concern was more for a color cast of "overly" blue than for the water/sky reflection. In this version, I did a color inversion layer to remove (or atleast balance) the bluish color cast and also cloned out some semi-submerged debris in the foreground.

    If I decided to go B&W with this new image, and I most likely will, then all bets are off in that regard and I might cast a more interested eye toward the bleached effect. Thanks for your efforts.

    Well so much for waiting...

    I like them both but I think the B&W is a bit more pleasing.

    B&w is definitely the way to go. I find the reflection in the color one way to distracting.

    It's interesting how significantly different people see an image. For me, the B&W is a meaningless jumble of lines but the color in the water really makes the image pleasing to look at. I have a really hard time viewing B&W images but others find them to be much more enjoyable than color.

    I think this would be a prime candidate for half & half. The actual ship above the water line in B&W & the reflection in the water in color. Kind of like a past & present concept.

    cool idea Rob I like the blues and blacks and that saves most of them... I still think Chris' image (the original) is best... for some reason I am drawn toward it...
