As Promised...


A few nights ago, Bethany and I spent the evening with my brother and his wife. They live on the 'north shore' (the other side of the bay). The four of us took a brief walk by the water. My brother has a new camera as well (a slightly more basic model of my Canon), so we took some pictures together. I think his pictures turned out better than mine, but that has probably happened to many of us...

This was one of the few photos I took that I was happy with. There was rain falling in the Georgia Straight, but it was hard to capture it. This was one of the more successful attempts. I took some similar photos without the dock in the foreground, but I think I like the railing in this image. There are no alterations on this photo, this is straight from the camera.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 6mm, f/3.5, 1/6 sec, ISO 50

Great shot.I suggest increase of shadows and saturation might do some good.

I like the railing in the picture, too. It gives depth and perspective to the photo.

You should be happy with this shot Dude!
I like the inclusion of the handrail as well. Its a debate as to whether to include such composite aspects in images like or similar to this. However I think is used to good effect in your image as well.
Its emphasises the perspective through that region of the image giving the image body and depth. I posted an image just recently with a similar composite aspect included to give the image body and perspective as well. (http://nativflavaz.blogspot.com/2006/04/auckland-city-night-view.html)
Metaphorically, its a reminder that the beauty of nature is sometimes off limits or should be approached with respect.

This is a good shot. The railing gives you perspective. I like "landscape" type shots that include something in the ofreground to give the image some real depth. Also, I think you did sucessfully capture the rain in the back.
