About the Image(s)

City of Melbourne from Williamstown across the Bay. A beautiful spring evening our first weekend out of a 16 week lockdown, I was able to go to Williamstown to spend time with my family.

I like your image. I think the focus is right on with a good depth of field. To me the red boat really sets off the image and I like that you have a nice blue sky and the lone seagull. To my eye the horizon is slightly off horizontal. Also, I think the image would be stronger if the red boat was not right in the middle. All in all a very nice image, wish I could have been there.   Posted: 11/02/2020 10:12:38

Thanks Lou, you are right about the horizon I missed that. It was the red boat glowing that caught my attention, I was also worried about it being in the centre and had played around to try and change it but was also about what else was in the frame, I have looked at it again and got it a bit off centre.   Posted: 11/02/2020 23:09:07

Beautiful shot of the city of Melbourne captured from a great perspective from across the harbour.The lighting is perfect. I did a little rotation to align the horizon and cropped the photo a little from the bottom. Overall it is a great photo.   Posted: 11/07/2020 07:20:14

Great image with color, sharpness and lots of interest. The red boat makes the shot. For help I would have turned the camera to the right, thereby, placing the red boat at the left lower third of the picture. Forgive me, I am just one who likes the rule of thirds and level horizons in photography.   Posted: 11/07/2020 15:04:59

The photo is amazing! I like what Albert did to bring the horizon across and the depth of field in by cropping, it makes everything stand out much more .   Posted: 11/07/2020 20:05:36

The coloring of the sky and the boats really goes well with the city in the background along with the water.   Posted: 11/08/2020 11:18:00
