    I used a wide angle lens to get this late afternoon shot of a ferry tethered to the dockside. The way the lens made the composition very angular appealed to me.

    Love it! I like the rope and it's color a lot! Also the angles that are created are very nice to see!

    that one is a clear keeper because of the clear well defined lines and angles!
    especially the rope, the stairs and the waterline

    Well, it is a photo by Tony, and he has so far ONLY posted keepers. All of them are.

    This one is no expection at all.

    Tony, I wish I had your eye and your knowledge to compose what I see so neatly and nicely!

    Consider me your greatest fan, will you?

    *cough*


    I really like this shot. The color and intensity of the rope really stand out and lead your eye to the ship and then around the image. Fantastic as usual.

    Question: do you do this professionally?

    Thanks for the comments folks - I really appreciate your feedback. I especially liked Corinna's :mrgreen:. Just teasing Corinna - your English is better than any language I care to mangle! Do I do it professionally midget patrol? I wish! No. I just do it for the love of it. I come from a painting (arty-style) background, so and it's ALL about the composition for me.

    Regards, Tony
