Oh, yellow boat and grey sky = beautiful photo!
Thank you…That does seem to be a good formula 🙂
Really like your composition!
Thank you – I worked on that for a bit trying to get it right. The boat was fun to shoot. I almost hopped on board as nobody was around. Given my lack of any natural sort of grace, my wife and I decided it best if I stayed on dry land.
love the slight left down feel – and that crackled paint – adds to the mood –
Thank you. I tried to straighten the photo a bit but lost the top part of the boat when I did. The paint does have a cool look to it.
yeah I know what you mean because that has happened to me when I straighten some too – but I actually like the slight tilt – it feels natural and you can feel the weight of this vessel – it feels heavier this way – hm
and ya know, I know there are times when photographers crop and straighter and edit and do all these cool things – but sometimes less is more – anyhow, I am glad you left the tip in – as well as some of the sky…
I had to leave the sky in, it is a really great contrast to the boat itself. – Thanks for your thought; they make a lot of sense and I agree.
wellt hanks for being so open to comments – after I left I was hoping I did not come across the wrong way – because you are such an experienced and talented artist – and well, to receive my thoughts so sweetly just shows also your humility – which is not always the case when folks reach a certain high skill level – so high five to you – and thanks for taking the time to receive and reply to comments – have a nice week!
Thank you….I think there is always room for new idea and feedback, especially in art.
For the first 18 years of my life I lived along the Erie Canal Christopher. In this post and “The Historic Erie Canal” post you have done a GREAT job of conveying a sense of it and brought back many fond memories. You also have a great eye for capturing details from unique perspectives. Thanks so much.
Oh thank you. What a wonderful compliment. It is a beautiful area.
Love the photo!
Oh, thank you very much.
