I really like the symmetry of this image. I love the complimenting orange/red/blue that dominate. To my eyes it seems sharp and the depth of field is perfect. I really like how the diagonal of the shore meets with the horizontal ship that is smack on the one-third line. I think whoever owns that ship needs to have this picture in their office. A real wall-hanger for sure. Well done.   Posted: 06/12/2020 13:02:23

This is a great shot I agree with Kurtis the symmetry, colors all make this a great photo. Knowing the ship is the subject I am caught up on the foreground. It is something about the leading line to the ship, the rocks, and the pebbles even though dark has my eye searching thru them looking for anything. I really love the foreground in this shot. Wish it were slightly brighter but that would distract from the subject. Great shot....   Posted: 06/15/2020 12:46:14

I see what you mean about the darker part and wanting more there. Slightly troubling composition with the dark and bright parts.   Posted: 06/22/2020 13:18:47

This a really big freighter,you caught the light just right to get that glow above the ship fading from the blue. The shoreline with the waves make a great lead in in line. its all nice and sharp. I really like the way the sun lights up the steam from the stacks, well done.   Posted: 06/15/2020 14:50:55

I agree with all the comments on why this entire image is so very nicely done.

If you cropped right below the ship I think you would have another great shot worth framing, with just the water and the shore!   Posted: 06/21/2020 15:57:51

Wonderful angles and colors. I like the smoke and also the small lighthouse as the ship glides through the channel. The rocks are important, reminding all viewers of the perils of Great Lake shipping. The image is clean and sharp.   Posted: 06/25/2020 11:21:43

Matt, You're mention of Luminar 4 in a prior email intrigued me so I checked it out and found it fascinating. Here is a sky replacement (dramatic sky #2) just for your interest. To say the least, it's a total fabrication but it is amazing what Luminar 4 can do. -Alec   Posted: 06/25/2020 11:39:11
