  Mini#29 Best of 2015, So Far...
Entry 1 of 33
   
 
Going Fishing       ©2015 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX7       1st place, 207 points
1/200s, f5.6, ISO 3200, 242mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Slightly straightened, increased exposure slightly, applied a little noise reduction for the sky, slight sharpening, increased saturation a little to bring out the color of the sky -- all relatively minor adjustments.       Extra Info: I liked the silhouetting, the colorful twilight sky, and the reflection of the sky color in the wet sand. I chose to capture the figures walking on the pier at that particular position for rule of thirds reasons, for balance versus the person raking in the sand below the pier, and to avoid overlapping with the light post and workbenches on the pier.

    Congratulations on your win... I'll admit here that I had little to do with it. I placed your entry further back. Now that I'm looking at it once again, I see that I dismissed this photo much too easily. Looking at it once more, I'm realizing that I would have given it a higher mark... maybe even #1. The composition, quality of light and color are all working very well with this one.

Well deserved!

    This is very beautiful. Something I would like to take for myself, only we don't have those lovely wooden jetties in my area. The silhouettes are working well for the photo, the amber glow makes it very rich and yes the three persons in the frame makes this all the more interesting. Only thing I want to change is to crop a very little portion of the foreground so that my eyes do not scan the length of the beach. In that way it will force my eyes to only focus on the jetty from right to left.

    The excellent result you have achieved shows your attention to detail in the placement of the figures. The soft colours and the reflections in the sand place this high in my vote

    Nicely done. Love the detail in the fishing poles which could easily have ben lost against the sky. In my favs from the start.

    Nice scene, but I find the composition a bit unfocused. The figures on the pier, the man below, the strong verticals and more all compete for attention.
