About the Image(s)

Living on an Island we equate the waterways in many ways with the street or roads. I was taking pictures of an otter when I looked up and saw the Women standing in the boat coming in to the launch area. I managed to get one shot quick and then she was lost behind a large boat and I went back to my original scenes. I found this interesting in how the Dogs behaved on the boat ( at that moment at least) and how she was standing with the motor running and no PFD. ISO 2000 , 450 mm , f7.1, 1/640. I like the mono version as I think the women and the dogs stand out better.

Ed, as you said, people and animals are used to navigate even on a standing position and with no safe devices. I like the B&W as well as the color version, and I believe your crop is more as to include all the boat reflections in the water but creates a large empty space (at least to me). My crop would be as adjusted   Posted: 07/02/2024 12:26:35

Ed - I also like both the color (great contrast between the 'golds' and blues. Your B&W works nicely as well. I see a number of circles in the water perhaps from a 'hard' clone brush in PS? They are less visible in the color image but are an otherwise a distracting artifacts. B   Posted: 07/12/2024 08:54:07

I prefer the color version. Isaac's crop does help the monochrome version; but maybe it's me ...I prefer color.   Posted: 07/12/2024 10:28:31
