About the Image(s)

Peggy’s Cove is a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, 30 permanent residents, whose economy has shifted to tourism. Over 700,000 people visit each year. This wrecked dinghy was probably put there for “artistic” purposes.

Hi Sheldon, The dinghy served its purpose well and made for an interesting composition. I can see a good foreground, interesting middle ground and the blue sky with a subtle, appealing sky. Good work!   Posted: 03/02/2023 07:57:36

I have almost exactly the same image. You did a great job with the composition and the portrait orientation works well. This is s wall-hanger!   Posted: 03/02/2023 11:41:25

Thanks Glenn. When were you there? I was looking at pictures online to see just how long the dinghy was there.   Posted: 03/02/2023 12:37:49

I agree with Glenn it is a wall hanger. Nice you were able to take this shot.   Posted: 03/12/2023 19:13:31

At last somewhere that I recognise. We visited Nova Scotia about 10 years ago. We drove from Halifax to Peggys Cove early one morning before the Tour Buses arrived and it was quite quiet. I like the small section that you have selected for your picture. I do not remember the wreck, but it may have been in situ.   Posted: 03/15/2023 08:05:11

Very nice image and well balanced composition. Was there any editing done to the dinghy? The colors pop nicely!   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:38:09

Thanks Suzanne,

I edited different areas of the image to taste using masking in Lightroom. It needed "help" since the mid day light wasn't the best.   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:40:49
