This old boat has been in the same place as long as I can remember.
It was used as a fishing boat for some time.

I particularly like the second shot, ..... I'd like it even more if the horizon was straight :D ;) ;) ;)

Thats it! They all need a horizon fix! I like them, but maybe an artsy lighting of the images. the colors seem a bit forced.

Thanks, Dennis.

Does it float with the tide? Looks like a little work and she could be sailing again. I like #3 the best. Cliff

I see lots of potential in these photos. As said, the horizon needs attention. I would also work the colors a little and crop out distractions. In Alabama, this boat would have family living in it.

Nice images, like previously mentioned the colours look a bit over saturated :)

I love old boats, they are made of WOOD, not PLASTIC. Loved your photos, also. Someday a bad storm will probably sink the old girl, but you have preserved her for posterity.

Ha Ha that will teach me not to have a good look at what I post on here, I did a quick job on them when I got home and put them on Facebook. The other day I parked in the same car park and it reminded me that I had taken some last year of the boat so I thought I would share them. I think I will have to have another go at them using the raw files.

I hope this one looks a bit more level.

This is from one of the raw files converted to jpg with nothing done to it apart from resizing.

I will try some different settings and see what I can come up with.
Thanks for all the comments.

It feels to me like you have two distinct types of photos, one a "landscape", and one a "still life" of the boat, for lack of a better term.

I meant to reply a few months age. This boat is out of the water now being restored, not sure where it is being done. I hope it will be painted in original colours. There is one in Jersey that has been restored but unfortunately I do not have any photos of it.

Nice, I was going to say.... get as many images in that you can before they pull it out of the water!!  :lol:

 

Well, maybe when they put it back, it will be even more photogenic.
