Challenge: Boats (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Tokina AF 80-200mm f/2.8 AT-X 828AF Pro for Nikon
Location: Strait of Georgia, British Columbia
Date: May 21, 2008
Aperture: 1/180
ISO: 100
Shutter: F8
Galleries: Seascapes, Transportation
Date Uploaded: May 23, 2008

"As the sea awoke from its slumber, it gently smiled at its friend, the restless sky. The new morning appeared troubled, uncertain of its prevailing mood. As the thoughtful sea attempted to pacify its eternal companion, a silent ship stole quiet passage through the dialog with little notice, interest or influence."

Funny, everyone in their "right mind" was sleeping in their ferried cars while I was bouncing all over the deck trying to get a shot of this amazing sunrise ................. with a boat in the frame of course. I felt lucky to be one of the few that endured fatigue to behold this magnificence.

Though the shot relies greatly upon the environment for its impact, I feel it fits the challenge perfectly. I hope y'all feel the same. Enjoy.

glorious sky but i feel it is the main focus of the photo when boats is the subject. I can certainly understand why you took it though

Looks like HDR? I expect a Top 10 here. Bursting with drama. Wow. A seven for you.

I love the clarity of the clouds, but the boat is a very minor part of this picture, and the challenge should make it a focal point.

Almost missed the boat I was so struck by the clouds. Awsome. Bumping Up.

Hope you can pronounce that first place! Awesome clouds, and I like the way they loom over the ship that looks tiny in relation.

What an absolutely amazing sky. Love the color tone you chosen on this also. Oh and there is a boat to, pity it wasn't closer.

Great sky, fantastic colours. That silver streak along the horizon is the final touch. The ferry is just an alibi for the challenge, right...;) Just joking, it is an essential element, balancing it all.

When you see those clouds, you go in the other direction.
Great clouds and sun reflection off the water. Frame really looks good with this shot.

Wow - looks very 3-D and totally cool. But, the boat is kinda down-played and the challenge is about 'Boats'. So, I'll still go with a 9.

Love the greys and yellows - great editing.

One of the nicest composition here... Amazing skies and light nuances...

Black cloud,huh? At first I didn't care too much for the smallness of the boat. Came back a few times and now see the black cloud following it. Updated from 7 to 8. Nice shot

Sky is just fabulous - boat is rather overpowered!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2008 06:06:02 PM
Look at that sky!! Rather overwhelms the boat but then boats are always at the mercy of nature, no matter how secure we humans feel on them.

Globally nice, but the water is overprocessed in my opinion

This is a beautiful photo... I wish there was a little more emphasis on the boat. 7

I've lived in Seattle for over 20 years - never seen a sky like that - nice job. If this were a sky challenge, this would be a really high score...

Beautiful sky.. but the boat is a bit lost in all this overwelming nature..

A very dramatic sky! Gorgeous! Only wish the water had a softer feel to compliment and not compete against it.
