Pointing Out The Boat

Pointing Out The Boat

The boat and the boater caught my eye. Classic boat. I took more conventional shots, but this seemed like an opportunity too good go pass up. I had to hurry and just about missed it, since the boat was moving up river.

One of the advantages/disadvantages of a P&S with its small sensor size is the exaggerated depth of field. This shot makes good use of it. Taken at only f5.6, it still has enough depth for both the near roots and the far boatl.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

In Lightroom, Recovery for the sky and clouds, blackpoint to the right, added Vibrance and Clarity, and Landscape sharpen preset. Finally, I used a graduated filter effect pulled down from the top to darken the sky further, and to increase contrast in the trees.
