ships and elevators in Thunder Bay
11 months ago

Although it is cold and ice forming in the harbour, the Thunder Bay harbour is busy with ships loading grain. Both images are HDR, the first one taken at sunset and the second about half hour later. Can see a boom on the ship was moving so there are seven ghostly images showing movement. Kind of like the effect but it wasn't planned.

Nice pair of images, quetico, especially the first.  The HDR is somehow appropriate here; it works to really bring home the crunchiness of winter in north Ontario.  Somehow you've managed to make the grain port attractive, and that's no mean feat.  Thanks for this glimpse.

Cold and warm
In reply to quetico, 11 months ago

Nice pair of images and well shot/rendered.  The first gives me an impression of how cold it is there.  The second with the lighting makes it seem much warmer.

Like them both but prefer the second. Weather here isn't so bad after all.

These are both very well done. The colors and overall tonality are very natural and appealing. Nice job. I can't choose a favorite.  Nice work.

The first one is my favorite for the sense of being there in the cold it portrays to me

Both of these are nicely done and suit the treatment you chose, as did the previous one you posted.  Like them all a lot Jon!

It is cold here,  -17 Celsius when I took pictures and colder today. The shipping season lasts longer on the Great Lakes than it used to but ice is starting to be a problem so might be over soon. Couple of ships in the harbour waiting but they may be among the last for Lake Superior.

A really nice set of images, and what a strange harbour arrangement... I am used to seeing ships moored against a low quai and towering above it.  This massive wall next to the ship is a surprising sight.

A common sight on the Great Lakes.  A collection of grain silos located at the edge of the water to load ships.

The first image clearly invokes a larger than life image, an image so big it is almost scary.  I am not a bif fan of HDR photography, and I can catch the effect, especially in the first image.  Nevertheless, the ships and elevators together make a fine image.

I agree that I overdo the HDR in many instances. I find that a single image doesn't do justice to what my eyes see. The obvious problem is that it is easy to overdo the HDR in the attempt to make a more arresting image.

Interesting images, mate. Well done.

Have you also tried doing them in B&W?
I reckon that could be just as stunning. Maybe even more so.

Very nice, and well done.

The second one could be the backdrop a scene of a modern action movie the way you rendered the colours.

The good thing of cold freezing weather is that air is clear, no haze. (not missing the cold thou)

I shared this photo with my old manager who was born in Thunder Bay and he loved it and said it brought back good memories.

I would like your permission to print one 11x14 and give it to him as a gift. If you approve, I will send you his name and address in Manatoba, Canada.

Please let me know.
