#9 Semifore Flags

SemiforeLR #9 Semifore Flags

I love the color of these flags against the dark blue sky.  The breeze gave the flags a nice sense of motion as well.  I used a circular polarizing filter to darken the sky, then punched up the saturation, and contrast in photoshop.  I also cloned out a couple of additional cables which I found to be distracting.  Overall I love the colors in this shot.  ISO 100 f5.6, 1/500

Photo #7 Old tall ship

October 27, 2009

We took a harbour cruise on an amphibious vehicle on Sunday.  While out looking at the sealions and such we saw this tall ship coming into port.  I have always loved sailing ships, and especially the old tall ships.  When I shot this photo, I knew right away what I wanted to do with it in photoshop, I wanted to make it look like an old time photograph.  I think it turned out well.  Notice the sailors in the rigging along one of the top yard arms?
