Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Negative Image (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0 EX Aspherical HSM for Nikon
Location: San Diego, Downtown
Date: Apr 25, 2006
Aperture: f2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Galleries: Abstract
Date Uploaded: Apr 25, 2006

I submitted another picture 2 days before the deadline and was happy with that.
3 hours before the deadline I looked at the sky and saw those beautiful clouds and I thought they would look good in the negative image. I took about fifty shots of the Star Of India in downtown of San Diego and rushed home. I had no time for any extra editing, only levels for contrast and Invert layer for the negative.

I still was not sure I was doing the right thing and 2 minutes before the deadline I clicked the Submit changes button with my shaking hands, I even forgot to change the title of the picture.

Many of your comments sad my image looks like a “Ghost ship”. That’s what I would have called it if I had more time.

Thanks everyone for the comments and votes.

I like the effect but would have liked to see a bit more detail in the ship..

Great shot, I'd have given it a 10 if I were voting on it. Reminds me of some of the stuff Frank Hurley photographed on Shackelton's Antarctic trip

Definitely has the ghost ship vibe to it. You obviously made the correct choice as to which image to submit. Some of us have a hard time doing that. This is simply an excellent shot. Well done.

Did you have time to say "Hi!" to my daughter? She works at the Star of the Sea right under the bowsprit! Congrats on ribbon!

I didn't vote in this challenge, but if I had, this would have scored high from me. I really like that you can still see the details in the sails and the sky really does look "spooky".

Congrats on your ribbon. You made the right choice.

Congrats on completing your "hat trick" of having all 3 kinds of ribbons. NO chance your outtake would have ribboned, well in my opinion though so I definately think you made the right choice in image to send in.

It was a good decision. I gave it a 10 and it was one of my favourites. Congratulations. The outtake looks flat comparing to this ship.

Great composition.

Excellent sky. This image is fantastic. I would like the right side to be cropped a little tighter to eliminate the pole (top right). Great work.

This is really a great shot. Love the contrast, the detail in the ship. Sky has a good, sorta' fearful look to it. Best of luck to you! 9

Beautiful shot. If I could have my wish list I would like to have seen more of the bow (?), possibly all the way down to the water...

Looks like a ghost ship. :)

The ghost ship. It looks much better as a negative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 08:06:06 AM
Wow! Great contrast between the boat and the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 07:26:52 AM
Great picture. Maybe 'Ghost Ship' would have been a better title. This is a definite improvement on the positive (I checked). And there is enough detail in the white for it not to be boring.
