Re: Abandon Ship

I keep coming back to this picture and trying to work out what I think of it. I like the way that it really shows the scale of the ship, but for me, there isn't enough differentiation between the ship and the town, so I think my brain is finding it hard to work out what is really the subject that is worth focussing on. That might have been your whole point - but visually, it doesn't quite work for me.

I think that if there were some way to make a real differentiation between the town and the ship, I'd find this a bit more of a 'wow' kind of image. As it is, it just doesn't quite do that.

I love the title - this really adds a sense of story to the photo, which excites my thoughts more than the pic on its own.


Hiya Liz and thanks for stopping by and your comments.  As I said to Andrew I did a crop left and top which were areas I felt didn't add value to the image.  I think if you are looking for scale the size of the tug boat and the lifeboats on the ship help give you that sense of scale.  Well for me that works as I have been around ships all my life.  Maybe yes when shooting next I should strive to represent scale better
