About the Image(s)

Taken two years ago on a trip to Northern Ireland. I have went back through some older images, looking for things that I have over looked. I rediscovered this image, which I probably will not enter into competition or necessarily show, but I still liked it personally. I was drawn originally to the colors and complexity of the patterns, but the image I got what was not what I remember. The light was rather flat. So I added a lot of color contrast, burning and dodging in Photoshop to get what I wanted. One of the main changes was I wanted the big ropes to be lighter so they stood out.

I love pictures of boat lines--their flow and intertwining always interests me. You punched up the color on this very nicely, without overdoing it. Well done.   Posted: 05/05/2021 23:34:53

What a beautiful mess of rope. Your edits very much improved the image. The image is much more interesting bright and bold, and detailed knots in some netting stand out more.
There is metal piece at the left bottom that I might remove by cropping the side. I don't think it harms the overall image without it.
