Challenge: Transportation II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS

Shutter: 1/640
Date Uploaded: Aug 8, 2006

This "floating city" is currently anchored off Esquimalt Harbour while its sailors bolster our tourist economy.
This shot was taken from Esquimalt Lagoon, and I spent a fair bit of time drooling over the setups of some of the other photographers out there. Some of them made me downright embarrassed to be seen with my P&S!

I imagine I'll get comments about the colour being off, but it's the golden evening light, and I wasn't going to "correct" it :)

Crop, levels, curves, USM, noiseware, desaturate a touch, another tiny touch of curves, resize, USM, save for web.

nice colours. Shame no texture in the sky but that mother nature for you.

Impressive ship, but you needed to get your camera a little higher to keep the foreground foliage from overlapping the ship. Also, a slightly looser crop might have made the frame feel less crowded.

Very nice!! I love the punch that the golden grass in the foreground gives this.

Good job including some foreground detail to give it scale and interest.
