The blue Caribbean reflection....C&C welcomed.
I like the simple composition.
I too find the simple composition very pleasing. ~~~This shot triggers lots of pleasant memories of my sailing days...the sunlight glistening on the water, warm winds on bare arms, the power of the wind propelling the boat forward, and the sensation of speed as the boat heels over. For me, this picture is worth a 1000 words and memories.
I too like the simple composition. And the scene brings back fond memories
However, the boat appears rather blueish.. is that colo(u)r cast? If it is , and if it can be repaired, the boat would be in a better contrast to the blue of the water and hence appear stronger in the image.
maybe something to play with!
I'm excited for your sailing experiences......I lived on my cheoy lee offshore 31 for two and half years cruising the Bahamas and Florida Keys. Where did you sail?
Hey Alex... thanks, actually I tried to whiten the sails a bit, but apparently not well enough. The blue-ish cast of the water up to the sky is very powerful. Please have a go at it......
just a try.. maybe overdid it a bit ... :
You did very well......nice. My problem was the water starts to blow out...
Wow I have to wonder where you were to capture the boat from that angle.
From the deck of a very large cruise ship.....
Ah now that is a fine pirch.
I like it its really calming....
Wow, that's awesome! My sailing was mainly on Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay (on 30 foot boats...a CS30, a J92 and early on there was a 25 footer whose make escapes me). Did some racing in Key West and Newport (on the J92 and a J35), and cruising in the Virgin Islands and by St. Lucia (on 30-42 foot boats). So the longest I lived aboard a boat was only about 10 days.
I'm a cruiser at heart though! Love to have wine and hors d'oeuvres while sailing.
