Challenge: Boats (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Reykjavik harbour
Date: May 23, 2008
Aperture: 9
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1,6 Sec
Galleries: Transportation, Blur
Date Uploaded: May 23, 2008

The photographic definiton of exposure:

a. the act of presenting a photosensitive surface to rays of light.

b. the total amount of light received by a photosensitive surface or an area of such a surface, expressed as the product of the degree of illumination and the period of illumination.

c. the image resulting from the effects of light rays on a photosensitive surface.

My first submission in 18 months. I could not resist the subject as I have a thing for boats. I went down to the harbour to photograph some boats when I saw this boat with a cover that was loose and blowing in the wind. I Made a few shots with a low viewpoint and a long exposure so that the cover would make a blur in the sky.

' ooo, lovely colours, tones, colours, o, and those colours... this is another that grabs you in the guts. the left side, so crisp and clean, the right a chaos of shadows and motion. the anarchy threatening to overtake the order. and those blues...mmmmm.....

Interesting and elegant, not completely abstract but very strong graphically.
I had it good rated at first sight...and now better at second sight

I don't know what you did, but the more I look at it the more I like it.

Lovely! No idea how you got that effect (would be nice to see a break-down), but it delivers. Beautiful colour range.

It's mysterious too me. Part of me wants to give your photo a 10 and part doesn't. I'll give it an 8.

This has just enough mystery and just enough definition to make me see so many possibilities. A very lovely 10.

Not sure what this is, but I'm sure it has to do with boats, and the visual expression is extremely powerful

This has to be one of the most interesting photos in this challenge... very creative! Not sure if I like it but it's worth a 6 to me.

This is different! I love the left side of the photo. I can't figure out what the motion is, though. Can't be a mast. A boat cover/tarp maybe? I'm stumped! But it's cool.
