Theme Day - Big Boat, Little Boat

Contrast is the theme today for the CDP blogging community. As in this photo, I like shooting high contrast water scenes enhanced by the early morning light. The added contrast in this case is the three man crew in their light rowing shell darting past the slumbering tall ship Lady Washington seen here in the foreground.

Raf, what a superb shot. Love the dark against the light and you've caught just the moment with the boats.

Bibi said...

Very nice, Raf. You usually don't do bw photos, but you did well here! I like it.

Nathalie said...

I love this photo. The contrast is striking and I love the world of boats, big and small. You've got it all here.

Bibi, I don't think this is a b&w photo. I believe it's just a natural contrast. Am I right, Raf?

Complex image, RAF. Also like the light-dark contrast of the silhouetted components.

Have a great weekend!

Nathalie, yes you're correct. There was little difference between the natural color seen here and making it a monochrome image. Thank you for the comments.

You certainly managed the contrasts - both in colour and between the boat-sizes :-)

PS Thank you for the comment! I haven't decided yet quite what I'm going to do about benches and Fridays and so forth, but we'll see... :-)

Sorry for the delayed comment to your Theme Day post. I do enjoy your 'water' images. This one doesn't disappoint.
