At least now, I'll know to ask for Belgica in the UK and not Brussel sprouts as they are known stateside.
Er don't do that Chris. It's just my play on the fact that the Belgica was a Belgium Antarctic exploration vessel.
Profound. Moving. I laughed, I cried, I felt like a kid again.
But then, I also thought the first shot was a cabbage floating amidst some clouds.
Yep, the Wirefoxian imaginative juices are in full flow and have obviously benefited from all the Christmas cheer.
Success at last. My carefully placed sprout has moved someone to tearsProfound. Moving. I laughed, I cried, I felt like a kid again.
Al, if you want it to be a cabbage in the sky, it's a cabbage in the sky.
I like your humor, or dare I say, your humour.
I agree with the telephoto lens not being the best choice. I would also like to see the boat more to the left of the frame, basically eliminating all the dead space to that side. If possible, use a wide angle lens and let the mooring bouy in the foreground be the anchor point you use to lead the viewer's eye to the boat....and maybe just a bit warmer on the white balance to give the hull a bit more jump.
Low angle shot...make the boat the focal point, not the fore or backgrounds.
Thank you, those are good suggestions. I was trying to bring in the cottage on the far shore that sort of matches the color scheme in a triangle type of thing, but it was not worth it, because it just brought in all of those other camps, which sort of weaken the photo. The fact that they had made an attempt to get it out and cut a path in the ice also sort of limited my options as to where to shoot from.
I may try to shoot it again next time we get a sunny day. Thanks, again.
Oh how witty you are dad!
But seriously, you are amazing - I am proud.
