    This is a restored version of this

    Pentland Firth 1963

    dirty and chemically colour damaged transparency that was originally scanned untouched. I have tried to approach the original colours of the original scene.

    I did not place thisshot here in the expectation of attracting viewer attention, and I was surprised when it did. I should not then have put it about in its damaged state, and it had become an embarrassment, so I have worked on it a bit. I have not evened up the horizon because on a fishing boat the horizon is never even!

    I was just thinking about this very place. It’s a fantastic picture.

    Both are awesome Phillip!!!!

  • Seoirse sagt:

    I love this shot
    all action and tension.
    I think the ‚damaged‘ shot has a certain charm that is worth keeping.

    seems very low signal/noise for a film scan. the water looks way oversharpened and artifacty. interesting colors and comp. but, doesn’t grab me. seems dull rather than bleak.

    I think the noise works in this image to strengthen the harsh contrast of the water. The mood is forbodding, which is fantastic. I like it!

    The low image quality is a killer

    The image appears to be way too oversharpened for my tastes. I can’t get beyond that.

  • schmod sagt:

    too sharp. good composition otherwise, but it’s way too oversharpened to pass the test


  • Cade sagt:

    Although I think this is a good picture it’s a shame how the seagulls are so small and kind of blend in with the ripples of the water.

    The clouds providing a ‚ceiling‘ of sorts over the ocean is nice, and the water looks very interesting, but on this occasion I unfortunately have to give a ‚delete me‘ rating (just due to the birds and the boats being so small and hard to make out the detail of).

    It could be great, but it lacks of something…

    Thanks Cade and Iguana Joe. I appreciate your helpful comments.

  • Escape Vehicle sagt:

    Its oversharpened but I like it anyway. i think its a great shot. Good luck with the original.

  • lawatt sagt:

    as much as I love boats, in some ways the original works better for me — I like the tones here better, not so purply as the original, but there’s still too many traces of the dust in the sky to really work, & the oversharpening that others have mentioned leaves the image with a cold feeling

    The crop is better. And only the best of the best are here good enough. So, that is why i have much deleteme too!

    I like it. Very dramatic and moody.

  • copaceticity sagt:

    I love both photos, but I think I like the colours in the first better. Nice use of the rule of thirds.

    Great photo. I like this kind of captures with a colorful subject on a basically monochrome background.

    Found in your popular shots. (?)
