Three Boats from Lighthouse by Arief Rahardjo

February 2021 - Three Boats from Lighthouse

About the Image(s)


Title "Three Boats from Lighthouse"

The location was in Lengkuas Island of Bangka Belitung province, Indonesia. One of those boats we use to sail from main island to this small island. Visitor must hike rusted metal stair to reach the top of lighthouse.
I use Canon 650D with Canon EFS 18-55 IS II lens. UV Filter was attached in that lens.
Post processing I did in Photoshop. In Raw filter editing I select Auto then increase clarity +50, dehaze +20, vibrance +15, saturation +2. Then I use auto contrast, auto level as final touch.

That's a really interesting photo. Very colorful. I like the leading lines in the water that lead to the boats.   Posted: 02/04/2021 22:03:19

Excellent image, which encourages dreaming. Good composition with the beach below and the boats pointing in that direction. I like the colors. I wonder how the picture was taken: with the help of a drone?   Posted: 02/05/2021 06:23:26

Hi Raymond, it was not a drone, I use Canon DSLR.
BTL : I went up to light house (around 8 storey) where from the top visitor can have bird view of surrounding island.
I attach the photo of that lighthouse. I mark in circle the location where I took this photo.

I really appreciate your feedback and appreciation.

Thank you very much.   Posted: 02/05/2021 08:30:37

Nice shot. Reminds me of a place I visited in the 60's, except I did not have a high vantage point.

My only advice on the image is maybe adjust the highlights down a bit. There should be detail in the roofs of the boats you can bring up.   Posted: 02/05/2021 10:38:16

You have shot this well, that colour is very striking and the three boats are well depicted in the image. I like your composition, but I do wonder if you moved the boats a touch more to the left and had a touch more of that gap in the reef would have a balance. But great shot and my poor legs would not have got me half way up that lighthouse.

Hi Paul, I am not used to manipulated my image. I am typical old style photographer... ha.. ha.. ha..
I will try to manipulated it later. Thank you very much for your appreciation and feedback.   Posted: 02/08/2021 08:29:03
