Challenge: Double Take III (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Date: Jun 3, 2010
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/250
Date Uploaded: Jun 8, 2010

Processing was very simple; From RAW thru ACR to CS3, a touch of Topaz detail in negative settings to smooth it out, a hint of hue/sat, adamus sharpening.

Some who saw the image earlier suggested the composition was too static; this illustration shows why I don't think it is; it's a classic triangular composition overlaid on a layered one, and I think it works very well.

Bear, I just love the way you always look for classic but overlooked ideas in photography.

I learned from this! Thanks!

If you were a Mexican wrestler, you would be "El Gran Orso Didactico" ;)

That 5D is so smooth. Great stuff!

WOW - kind of reminds me of a Hopper painting. He did some sailboat images that kind of remind me of this. I didn't vote but this is fab, Rob. I'd have given this high marks for sure. Congrats.

Counting my current entry in "Boats". 4 of my last 6 entries have had boats in 'em. It's that time of year, don'tcha know?

At least these skiffs aren't my usual skiffs on the Herring River, like the HDR pair; these are down-cape 12 miles or so at Hemenway Landing on Nauset Marsh, Eastham. Same location as "Unbearable Lightness of Being" and "Beached Skiff", actually...

This is a fabulous and fabulously ursine shot. Centered composition works! One of two 9s I gave in this challenge.

Shame you couldn't use this for boats! I had you at 6, but looking at it again I am shoving it up to an 8!

Beautiful shot.

There is something so odd and wonderful about this image. It looks more like graphic art than a photograph. The featureless sky and water, the bold horizontal lines, the splash of color. Front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2010 03:32:08 PM
Well executed. Sure it's a contender for top 10. 8
