    Sunset at the Adelaide Graveyard for ships

    Hi, I haven't posted for some time and thought I would put this one up for viewing. This was taken in Adelaide - South Australia, Australia. The sun is shining through an old hole in the top of
    the wreck.
    This is a hdr image which I have tried to make look as near to a normal images as possible.
    C & C welcome.
    Thanks for looking

    Filled the car up with petrol a couple of hours ago and the cashier who was from Adelaide was saying I must visit it and roam around the food market. Your photograph adds to the impression that I must visit the area with my camera. Very well controlled HDR. Did you have 5 gumboots? Two for you and the rest for the tripod. The clouds in the sky and the reflections in the water really add to it. Great shot of an intriguing scene. The clump of vegetation at the bottom right is a bit of a distraction for me and I wonder if cloning it out would be worth doing. I think it may spoil the composition trying to crop it out.

    Thanks for giving me something so interesting to look at.

    Good idea about cloning out the bottom right. Will do that. Actually only had on some good strong boots.
    It was a bit soft but as long as I treaded carefully it was fine.
    Thanks for the compliment on the image.

    Viewing at full screen size makes a considerable difference to this image.

    Hi Debbie. A very striking image. Very pleasant to view and the silos in background are so out of context from a decayed boat, that they add a lot of interest.

    You might consider cropping off most of the mud at the bottom (all the way up to the base of the island just below the boat but leaving a bit of water showing, and cropping off the right side almost to the rightmost edge of the boat, but leaving a bit of space between boat and cropped edge. Because of the bright reflections, the wet, muddy area at the bottom tends to pull the viewer's eye away from the real interesting parts, namely the boat, silos and clouds. I like the sky just as you have it. With the cropping, the sky provides a lot of negative space to balance the composition.

    My two cents. You may disagree.

    Just in front of where the water is was a marshy, soggy bit of land that I was able to creep out onto. It wasn't as bad as that sounds but I did have to be a bit careful.

    Nice image Debbie, nice idea and well seen. I agree with Ken's crop though. It moves the point of interest away from the centre line of the comp.
