  Mini#33 Best of 2016, So Far
Entry 5 of 26
   
 
Stillness in Motion       ©2016 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX7       5th place, 137 points
50s, f16, ISO 200, 236mm, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Slight crop, decreased highlights and increased shadows, a little clarity and vibrance, NR       Extra Info: Taken about 45 minutes after sunset. I used a long exposure to smooth the water and give some motion to the sky. I think the light over the boat lift gives the shot its focal point.

    A fine bit of photography from a fine photographer. You have entered a series of stunning images lately. (Personally, the balloon shots are still my favourites!) Congrats on a double top 5!

    Amazing landscape shot! Great exposure for the ambient light and the light coming from the distance.

    Makes my top 5 for the lighting and certainly the surreal colour. Great focus on the subject of the boat at dock's end, and just a wonderful vista. Looks a fine bit of photography.

    Lovely scene. I like the soft colours. You are right about the light over the boat attracting the eye to the boat. In my favourites.

    agree the light is the focal point the long exposure helped by the boat being out of the water

    Great example of "blue hour" photography. One of my favorite times. You have captured the serenity of the moment nicely.

    Intriguing color and contrast, though the sky seems oddly purple. The light and boat do provide a focal point, but the lighted buildings - being of similar size and color - tend to compete.

    I agree with everything you say in the Extra Info section. Nice smooth water and clouds. Beautiful colors. And yes, my eyes go straight to the light! High in my TT.

    Nice photo... the blurry water and pink /violet sky give this shot a dreamy look. TT

    I like this a lot. Very clean sunset/landscape photo. I also like the lamp at the end of the jetty being a good focal point. Well done!
