Shorncliffe Pier

Cast net fishing

On the Weekend aussie, vintage and l had an early morning start to shoot the Shorncliffe Pier, so no doubt you will all become familiar with it as we each present our own versions.

However l wasn't sure about this shot and aussie suggested this processing and to my mind it worked a treat, thx m8.

However low light shoots are new to me all suggestions for processing and composition gratefully accepted. :)

Works for me, Zed. I especially like the dancing ghost part-way along the pier.
zed: Thx Ray, l took several shots of this guy throwing his castnet but this shot was the standout for me as he does have the staring role

Zed great photo the b/w works very well "did I say that" lol
zed: l simply don't believe it, vintage agrees that b/w works well, l am off to buy a lotto ticket, its my lucky day smile
Mono is good. Love the lights and the ghostly figures.
zed: Thanks Bill
I also like this shot, very well done, you've captured that very early morning feel. The ghost figure, and row of twinkling lights on the right, just makes the whole picture. Very good indeed.
zed: Thank you for your comment Sheila, much appreciated

Very nice, too. I like the ghostly figures and the strong lines in this very much.
actually, this is pretty good as is. The ghost adds a lot. I might have been tempted to dial in a little more black (maybe red channel) to make it moodier. Just a touch though!!
Cheers

zed: Thanks Rob, l will give it a go and compare results
I think that you have managed this very well, Tony. Great perspective and tones.

It works well Tony, mono is perfect because it lets you concentrate on what's going on without being distracted by the colour. Good shot.
zed: learning from a few masters of B/W smile
Good composition, great lighting and nice finish Tony. Well done.
zed: Thanks Brian

See my advice with mono wasn't that bad. But of course I did pinch the idea from Mal the master of moody ghostly blur
zed: Very good advice Aussie grin

SUPERBE CLICHE, j'aime beaucoup l'ambiance
La nuit était elle déjà là???
bonne journée
zed: Sorry but l speak no french and the online language converter left a lot to be desired. Thank you for visiting smile
And I, I speak only about French, but I use REVERSO to translate I wanted to know if it was dark at the time of the cliché(picture)?
zed: Il continuait juste d'abord la lumière, juste avant le soleil est venu sur l'horizon.

On espère que ce traducteur travaille(marche) mieux, tout le mieux

Tony
Lol at automatic translation ! My poor english is much better I think !
This is a wonderful picture, really well done with an atmosphere coming from a moovie ! Bravo and a likey for me !!

Came across your blog to check who is checking me out...
Very cool picture! I had to read through all the comments to figure out how you did it, but still not sure whether I could do something like it. Will try in Sydney sometimes!
zed: beginners luck, l think l took 4 shots of this man with the castnet and this was the only usable one. l look at all the Australian bloggers, l just don't comment on all the pics
