Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Silence IV (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro
Location: Hong Kong
Date: Feb 29, 2004
Aperture: F4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/180
Date Uploaded: Feb 29, 2004

This shot was taken near where I live. It was about 7:30am, before all the fishermen show up and take their small boats out (usually 8:30 here on the weekends.)

The inlet was dead quiet because Hong Kongers are late risers. The fog has been in for several days, and that has the tendency to make everyone sleep in a little more than usual.

We climbed down some rocks to get to water's edge, and took a few pictures. The photoshop work is limited to levels, unsharp mask, cropping, and a little saturation and hue.

This image is indeed a timeless winner. It speaks of the softer emotions withing our souls. Just looking at it "silences" the soul and places us in a holy communion with nature. Great job, great feelings and above all a wonderful capture that will remain permanent in our hearts.

Excellent shot. The tiny ripples of the water adds a beautiful interest. Nice simple composition. Gave you a "10"

Nice composition. Good example of how to use the rule of thirds.
I really like this photo, and it does convey the message of "silence". 9

Good Luck!

Very Nice, What are those two breaks in the water just below the boat, if you would have waited just a moment more for these to pass a Perfect 10. Those breaks tend to break the silence of the scene...

What a wonderful shot.....very peaceful.... very serene and a terrific perspective.

nice and simple

would it have been better without the horizon?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colours of the boat really sing out against the misty water and sky. Great composition too and I like the little dot of that bouy - it's like a full stop after the flourish of a signature (written right to left). 9

Nothing like a little fog and an empty boat to create an image od silence. Good ROT use and an overall nice image.

This is nice, it has a wonderful peaceful feeling. I would like to see it a little farther away.

Can't miss with a shot like this and me. Very appealing shot. Good color.

A lovely picture here, with a delicious contrast of colorful boat and gray water/fog.

There is something about the geometry of the objects, the land, the margins - the "feng shui?- which is not quite perfect to my jaundiced eye. I want to move that buoy! I'm sure it is just me, but I wanted to mention it, in case you felt it too.

Very strong score with me. :)

this is a creative and visually interesting shot, it seems like it might need some constrast levelling to make colors of boat really come through

03/04/2004 10:51:17 PM
Stunning!

03/04/2004 09:58:27 PM
A little more DOF would have made this a great shot

One of the best of the bunch. This one says calm and silence. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2004 04:01:48 PM
good but i dont like the horizon line. I do like the emptiness of the boat, no people, no motor etc.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2004 02:14:39 PM
Beautiful picture. You really captured peace and silence.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2004 02:00:07 PM
very pretty, the subdued colors are very representative of real life, it's perfect. Makes me home sick :-( 6

AH but I imagine hearing the wave's (well ripples) laping at the hull. I do like the way the colors jump out through the fog! Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favorites -wonderful, silent mood. To make this exceptional - I'd like to be a bit closer to the boat having it fill the frame more.

Peachful and quiet, the prototype image for the challenge. Like the strong red color in the othervise monotonal image.

Lovely colors.

I love this shot! It screams silence (hehe.. little bit of an oxymoron, there. I suppose I should say that it whispers silence!). I love the colors and the angle. This is one of my very most favorite photos in this challenge.
