About the Image(s)

This image is from one of my favorite places to shoot, The Boston Fish Pier. This was taken early in the morning when there are no crowds but very interesting light. If you are lucky (I wasn’t) and the tide is right, you might catch a boat unloading. I did not do much with this image other than get rid of some lights that I found distracting, lightened up the background a tiny bit, and attempted to accentuate the silhouette.
Basic Information: ISO 200, Aperture f/8.0, Speed 1/200, FL 24mm, Lens 24-120mm

Super image. Would not change a thing in the composition or the lighting. Is there a minor Vertical Tilt that I notice? Perhaps PS may be able to tell you. Overall a very pleasing image.   Posted: 11/13/2021 01:14:30

Nice silhouette image. The sunrise really helps the image. It looks like the horizon is straight but the mast looks a bit tilted because of the wide angle lens. That said, the lean does not bother me, and in fact probably adds to the image. I added a 2 pixel white stroke to the image, to separate it from the black background. If you click on the image in my reply, you can see on the black background instead of the grey. What do you think?   Posted: 11/14/2021 10:30:31

Very nice image with boat silhouette in the Dawn. I would increase a little bit of early morning orange sun light color to enhance the dawn atmosphere. For me there is a minor defect, Some part of the boat silhouette are indiscriminately overlapping with the building behind. It might try to improve it in Camera Raw Filter.   Posted: 11/17/2021 00:07:11

One has to like the silhouetted vessel captured in early dawn lighting and the deep natural vignetting. I like following the shapes around the entire vessel. My only slight suggestion would be to consider cropping in somewhat from the right.   Posted: 11/19/2021 16:04:00
