    IJmuiden Harbor

    A first post to the forum:

    A part of our harbor, last Sunday in rather hazy weather.
    Done with the Nikon D700+24mmPC-E (Tilt Shift) + tripod.

    Pallet is very sharp but was that your intended subject?

    Thank you Shadowman. There was no specific intended subject in this pict. It is just a general impression of a rather dreary looking area with no sun, no rain only some vague fog.

    I always find that foggy day subjects need a sharp 'reference point'; otherwise they just seem poorly focused.

    That sharp foreground with a hazy background nicely shows the whole scene in context.

    Thanks Geoff.
    I found the wooden pallet doubly referencing: for sharpness and for color.
