I’m still going through the photos that I took on our recent trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
This one is really a cliche photo, but I still enjoyed processing it. Everyone who goes to the coast gets a picture of shrimp boats with the fishermen mending their nets in the evening. I liked the color version of it, but I was drawn more to the black-and-white image. I wanted the focus to be more on the lines and shapes of the boats, rigging and the people than on the blue and white of the boat.
This image was shot with the Nikon D700 and the 24-85mm Nikkor lens. It was processed in PaintShop Pro X7, using Topaz DeNoise for a little cleanup. I had to also clean up the sky in the image because I still haven’t had the sensor cleaned in my camera. That’s my next DIY project.
I’m going to my second meeting of the Southern Light Photography Club tomorrow night. They’ve asked us to bring a few photos on flash drives to do a show-and-tell for critique. This should be fun! I’m taking this one, this one and this one.
Just want to say “Welcome” to my new followers! Hope you enjoy the images, and I appreciate your interest!
