Thread: Reflections of Swansea Marina SA1

  1. #1

    Reflections of Swansea Marina SA1

    Swansea is in West Wales. These shots (done last week) are simple shots of actual reflections on the marina water surface. They were rotated 180deg in CS4. I boosted the colours and contrast quite a bit, but apart from that there is no trickery in Photoshop!

    C&C welcome

    Those are just too good, I would not presume to critique, but I will say that I like #2 the best.

    No problem with any critique if it's asked for, Wendy. I like #2 as well - it looks so tranquil.

    I like #3. It has a surreal feel to it and it takes a bit of effort to work out what it is.

    Thanks, Grant. They do look surreal, but are actually very easy to do. They need to be shot in RAW though due to the amount of colour and contrast adjustment you need to make. I think it might kill a poor little jpeg!

    My vote is for #1. It would be a brilliant cover for a book or poem about a ghost ship. Bright but haunting. A great composition, too, which must take practice when you're effectively framing upside down.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Rick. My wife claims my thinking is all upside down, so I guess that where it comes from.
