My subject for this post is an old boat I stumbled across high and dry on a local beach on Waiheke Island.
The lighting wasn't bad as it was just after 10:00am in the morning with average cloud cover.
What I actually liked about the structure was the aged, weathered look. I thought about HDR but as mentioned in a previous post not really my cup of tea so decided to play around with my 7D on-board colour settings and create a custom colour setup just for this subject.
The post processing was only down to converting RAW to JPEG and a slight crop nothing more.
The first shot taken through the old port hole was really about getting the background in focus and using the porthole as a natural frame.
No surf beach in the background I'm afraid so limited in terms of what I could frame.
I even waited for about 20 minutes hoping to catch a seagull flying by, I even tempted them with half my sandwich!! but no go.
However a lot of fun and happy with the result.
