Dinghy in the Mist

One of those shots where I’m not sure to process in B&W or colour. Quite like the scene though with the mist hanging on the water on a very still morning on the Gippsland Lakes.

  1. Colour, I reckon Andrew,maybe low key with the orange dinghy emphasised.

    B&W for me. way more moody and gets you thinking more. Good Shot!

  3. What you could do is use the colour and desat around the boat and add a bit of contrast to darken the surrounds.

    I think the B&W lacks punch or something… If you were into heavier processing like some people, then perhaps the colour one with the blues etc in the background desaturated may work in that style of image/editing… I’m not sure as i’ve never really done that style. So a HYBRID ! hahaa

  8. Andrew I think I’d try and shot it from higher if I could and get the other boats and background out of shot , then play with it , maybe doing as Mark suggested could be good. I don’t think cropping to remove the background would work, you’d have to shoot it again. Keep at it it’s a nice scene.

    • Thanks Andrew … over it now but wish we were back there….. ANYWHERE !!!

      Just read my comment again . Why is it easy to pick things and make suggestions in others shots but so bloody hard to work out our own.
