Boat #3

This is a shot that I processed about a year ago. It's one taken along the Third Mainland Bridge. Processed much in the same way as I processed this shot.

Quite a brave move to have so much empty space to the left-side, but it really works, well captured.
Jide Alakija: Thanks.

Looks like they are about to go into fog. Looks very serene. Makes me want to be there.
Jide Alakija: LOL....I'm sure if you saw the original you might be saying otherwise. Thansk.
Lovely quiet mood to this.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Mary.
There is an elegant stillness about this photograph. I really like it. (:o)
Jide Alakija: Thanks Rosalyn.
This is a cracking shot Jide ..
Jide Alakija: Thanks.
This is quite a shot....Looks like a painting i've seen long time ago...I really have no words..
Jide Alakija: Thanks Helena
PERFECT shot bro
Jide Alakija: Thanks. It's funny the reason I never posted it is because I didn't think it was all that.

Could definitely see this hanging off my wall...not that I love it. I do find it a bit gloomy but I appreciate the art in it
Jide Alakija: LOL...Hard to please again are you!
Very peaceful shot.
Fantastic wide screen photo. Love the tones nd the way the sea and sky are merged

Of the two shots, this one is IT for me, hands down, Jide. I learn by observing and this is definitely one way of processing I'd want to learn! It's going to my Likeys.
Elegant shot which dignifies the fishermen's simple toil: great work, Jide.

I knew I missed an awsome pic - anyways Im here now. Something about the fishermen, the boat and the empty sea. There is alot of knowledge that can be derived, and it in itself an aliggory. I LOVE IT.

Jide Alakija: There isn't much that has been done in post production, it was a very foggy day, all I did was changed the while balance.
