Lisbon - Sunset

More
5 years 1 month ago #1760 by Conor Casey


Hi everyone,

Just a shot of Lisbon at sunset here for you guys. I'd like to hear what you think of it.

I am kind of in two minds about it. I like the photo and the colours in it. I also like the scene and framing. My problem is that the boat is not as sharp as my technical mind would like it to be. The reason it's not completely sharp is because the photo was shot at 1/50 at 105mm. It was more of a snapshot. I wasn't sitting there with my tripod and the perfect settings waiting for a boat to appear. The photo was shot on aperture priority. On the other hand, another, more creative part of me kind of likes the slightly non-sharp boat. Just wondering what you guys think of the photo and the not completely sharp boat. Is it a winner or one for the rubbish bin?

Thanks. :)

Settings:

Shutter: 1/50
Aperture: F/11
ISO: 200
Focal length: 105mm
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Nikon 105mm
Mode: Aperture priority

I like the warm colors in the picture. To me that column in the foreground is distracting. I would have not included in the frame, not sure were you are going with it. Otherwise great composition

I agree about the column being distracting (sorry)..Gorgeous colours though!

Nice image...

I don't have so mucht trouble with the pole standing in front, but the thing that bothers me are these:

- The boat is not sharp, it worked for me if it was completly blown out, or the boat was tac sharp.

- The tilting of the image is off. Try to hold your camera lined up at the horizon. :)

Great colors though :)

Greetings,
Roy

What do you mean "of either"? There is only one photo. :unsure:
