photoblog image Toronto From A Scooner

Toronto From A Scooner

I took this shot on the Scooner that my friends got married on last week while we were out. I framed it to keep the yellow ropes in the shot along with the the wooden gunnels. This is the Toronto central wanterfront near 'Harbourfront Centre' and 'Queen's Quay'.

PP: Some curves and levels work. Posted saturation of the red channel and tweaked the hue. Boosted saturation of the yellow channel to add contrast to the ropes. Added selective diffusion.

really nice details in this shot. at first i thought that the shot could be improved if the scooner was the center of the shot, but then i realized that if that was the case, you would have had to cut the buildings out.
Iain Myrans: Yea, I was already shooting as wide as my lens would go (14mm = 28mm on a 35mm camera). I wanted to move the mast of the scooner to the left even a little bit more in this image but then I was loosing the sailboat and I liked it. So I think this was the best framing that was possible with the gear that I had. I hope! smile Thanks for the nice comment.
Really like this shot. Would have liked to see it even wider but as you said you were limited by your lens. It just seems that there is so much more to be seen beyond the edges of the frame.
Iain Myrans: Yea, 14mm isn't bad but I'll have to get a fisheye at some point wink There's also a great 7-14mm ultra-wide angle Olympus makes but it's a lot of $$$. http://olympusamerica.com/e1/sys_lens_714mm.asp
