About the Image(s)

This is a documentary shot of an in-shore lifeboat crew going to rescue some tourists stranded on rocks by a rising tide.

Taken back in 2011 I have just managed to salvage it off a card I thought was corrupted and I had been unable to download the images,
Taken on a Nikon D100 with 100-300mm zoom at 210mm 1/1000sec at f11 at 400iso.
Just some basic processing and sharpening from the RAW image.

This is a fantastic image Tim. Great color and frozen action. The water over the stern and under the bow hitting the rescuer brings it the image to life. I understand your caption mentions tourists on the rocks and wonder if a wider angle ie: 100mm would of told that part of the story. I assume you were up on the rocks with camera ready. I also see a small line from the bow perhaps leading to a larger boat. Regardless of those observations, I really like the shot and understand you did what you could do. Great choice for shutter speed and DofF.   Posted: 05/02/2022 17:00:04

Thanks Bob, I am not sure after this length of time what would have been included in a wider view, although as you say it would certainly have told more of the story. But I was on the shoreline with the camera.   Posted: 05/03/2022 01:27:02

This is a very impactful documentary picture. Technically very nicely photographed. Nice and sharp, good exposure, nice colours. Another glimpse of people who put themselves in harms way to help others - thank goodness. The waves and the motion of the rescuers provide lots of action. My only small suggestion would be to show just a bit more of the surroundings - but understand the time limitation of an image such as this. Well done.

This image really captures the moment. Great job. The stop action is great as are the colors. Great job.   Posted: 05/07/2022 13:22:43

Very exciting shot. A nice recovery of a memory from 2011. Maybe the rescuers' faces could be seen a bit better with increasing the shadows.   Posted: 05/08/2022 17:25:02

Excellent capture and great color. It should do well in a PJ exhibition especially. I don't think we need to see more to tell the story of a rescue. It is good you were able to get at least this image off the card. My 1st DSLR was a D100 which I still have, but converted to IR years ago.   Posted: 05/12/2022 15:52:44
