About the Image(s)

I took this image while in St. John, USVI with my DJI Mavic Pro. 1/115 second at f/2.2.

In Lightroom I rotated the image (I like it better facing to the right) and adjusted the exposure. I also cropped the image slightly and removed or darkened many of the lighter areas.

Nice diagonal lines here and flipping the composition was a great call. I like the shot, and wonder if you took some similar images from the same location but at lower altitude. I don't know if that would have been any better, but I'd be interesting in knowing what they might have looked like.   Posted: 06/03/2020 19:09:10

I checked, I don't have any of this boat taken from a lower altitude. That's a good idea, I'll try to remember it.   Posted: 06/06/2020 17:04:09

Beautiful ocean blues... I like the angle and the flip works well... we like movement left to right in our society. Possibly the whites are too hot, I'd like to see some more detail in the boat. And I'd like to see it directly above the boat, but I want that in every shot.   Posted: 06/30/2020 18:42:31

Apart from some of the sail and boat being on zone 9, great shot. Can the washed out highlights be burned in?   Posted: 06/30/2020 21:41:12
