About the Image(s)

I shot this while on a trip to Portugal in 1977 to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I shot this with the camera I was using at the time a Minolta Maxxum which I loved till the day I traded in for my first Canon. I recently started playing with my NIK filters and came up with this version. Nazare is a small fishing village outside of Lisbon and my only regret to the whole thing is that I lost most of the images over time.

I feel the picture is to blue and there is a lot of space around it. I feel if you crop the image ,you would have a better image, as the picture is not sharp.   Posted: 08/05/2019 11:34:51

Upon first viewing I an struck by the fact the horizon is not level (slants to the right) and that it is overly blue. These flaws can easily be corrected with modern editing programs. I feel the image has a great deal of empty space. A crop making the boat more prominent would help. As the image is not sharp, maybe adding some clarity to the sand would hep give the feeling of sharpness.   Posted: 08/06/2019 13:28:34

Thanks for visiting. I must have been in la la land. I"ll probably just wind up tossing it.   Posted: 08/06/2019 16:18:46

Blue is little over saturated for me. Looks sort of surreal. I do like the composure and subject matter. Stuart is correct though that it would benefit from a little tighter cropping. Maybe take some off the right and just a bit off the left so the boat in the water is not cropped out.   Posted: 08/10/2019 16:31:50

My first thoughts were that the horizon was not straight and it looked too blue so I agree with the 1st 2 comments. Then I thought about Sean's idea about keeping the small boat in and wondered about a panorama. On further thought I decided there would still be too much water so I'm not sure I would like it. I think it is fun looking back at old pictures, remembering the good times and working on making the pictures a little better. Glad you showed us this.   Posted: 08/11/2019 19:43:15

I too agree with the straightening of the horizon and the crop. I also agree with Margaret that her idea of the panorama would still have too much water. Love the story of the fishermen.   Posted: 08/12/2019 12:39:06
