  #230 High Angle Shot
Entry 2 of 20
   
 
Space Dock       ©2020 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       2nd place, 159 points
1/1000s, f5.6, ISO 200, 80mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Processing consisted of adjusting exposure, contrast and color saturation to bring out the surreal quality of the image.       Extra Info: Shooting from a high angle allowed me to exclude everything except the dock and water from the frame. The sky and clouds reflected in the water made the image seem surreal to me so I tried to emphasize that in processing.

    Like some sort of a spaceport. Very interesting shot.

    BTW - the robin's nest was about 6 feet above ground in a Pieris japonica bush.

    Certainly does look like out of space. Very effective, well done.

    This is such an unusual shot. The detail is incredible - it's hard to tell what is reflected or not. The result is like an Escher drawing where your mind is not sure what to believe. Well done.

    I like the surreal but dislike the image and I can't figure out why. I think it is the yellow and complete sense of disorientation. Also don't like the title. One boat moored here and it might go to my top pick. As it is, in my top 10 still.

    This is fabulous! Those reflections put the dock in the sky. Easily my top pick.

    Bizarrely the pontoon seems to be floating in the sky. Very interesting photo.

    Very striking, nicely done. Too bad you didn't have an aircraft reflected as well.

    kerszkavet - Yes, I did and it gives a completely different feel. Ultimately, I liked the complementary blue and yellow colors more.

    I really like this - great subject, well captured. As you say the high angle has really helped isolate the jetty and create an interesting image. Personally i'd have dialled down the vibrancy but it is helpful to read your intentions and I think your plan works. Just wondering - did you try a black and white version?
