For the seventh week of the year, I fell ill from the Tuesday and didn’t catch myself until the Friday (almost, I was still a little out-of-it through the weekend), so I effectively had one photographic day of that week, so one of the images HAD to work for the Deck. As fate would have it, I didn’t get to process any of those images until today, so I am a little late this time around for the Deck, but better late than never, as they say.
For that week I took a total of thirteen photos (that number alone should have told me it would be a bad week), of those, seven were snapshots for a pre-valentine’s day dinner that my family had and those went up on Facebook, and the remaining six were all from a walk that Nikhil and I took to the seawall, so I just picked one that seemed marginally better than the rest and processed it.

I guess you can be forgiven. Don’t make it a habit though! 🙂
While you were having a bad week I seem to have had a better than average week (at least photographically). Don’t worry though, natural order will soon reassert itself and you will be back in business.
Gee, thanks Nik. not even a mention as to the merits (or lack of) in the photo 🙂
this is nice, which part of the East Coast was this?
Thanks Fidal, this is at Ogle, there’s a Koker there.
nice dark and moody shot! hope you have shaken off whatever is ailing you.
Thanks Sheila, I think I got rid of it 🙂
I’m glad you’re feeling better. I like the shot a lot. I defiitely like the sky and also the old pilings of the dock. I like the vignetting and the boat too, but wish the boat didn’t merge with the dock. Very nice though.
Sometimes, you can’t control these things Jonathon 🙂 The pilings and the sky were my primary elements and the boat was secondary.
Love this shot. I like the placement of horizon in this composition and the clouds seems quite dramatic.
Glad that you’re feeling better.
Thanks Sasi, composing with the horizon is always the thing, do you put it dead centre of use the rule of thirds, or break it altogether ? 🙂
I like it! I like it!
Thanks Bob, such enthusiasm!!
I forgot. I like it except for what Jonathon mentioned. If you had moved just a step or two to the right the mast of the boat would have bee isolated. I know it may seem picky, but it separates a really, really, great photo, from just a great photo. 🙂
Thanks again Bob, sometimes these things slip me, as they say, hindsight is 20/20
I will certainly try to keep my eyes on these little details 🙂
Black and whites can evoke such mood, and this is certainly one of those shots… especially with the drama you’ve captured in that sky…
Thanks Brian, many times I will see a scene and like it but the camera can’t capture fully the mood, but once it is processed and usually in BW, that mood can come through uncluttered by the colours of objects.
Sometimes one good image is all it takes to make a shoot worthwhile. Seems to be the case here. 🙂
Thanks Mike, agreed, one good one is worth a batch of bad ones 🙂
Ugh, being sick sucks. Sorry to hear it, hope you are feeling better. “…so I just picked one that seemed marginally better than the rest…” Hahahaha, I couldn’t help but laugh as you made it seem like “oh, it’s just a ho-hum photo”! It’s a great photo Mike. 😀
Thanks David (Williams), thanks for the compliment 🙂 I think it was just a bit better than the others compositionally 🙂 I’m much better now 🙂
