Saw this boat a few days ago at the Semiamhoo Resort near Blaine, Wash.
It was late afternoon and with the clouds obscuring the Sun, the light was perfect. Clouds act like a huge softbox and the soft lighting made this scene really stand out. I loved the way the old building and boat compliment each other.
What I didn’t expect was the HDR effect when the images were toned to correct for white balance and contrast.
The series was shot in Raw + Jpeg, manual exposure, w/my 17- 35 f/2.8 on my D300s and 80-200 f/ 2.8 on my D200.
Been trying to decide which one I like better so I’ll leave it up to you.
Pretend that you are a photo editor and need to chose one for a story on the decay of the boating and fishing industry in the Pacific Northwest. The photographer came back with only these 4 to choose from. It was a last minute assignment so they did not have any time to research and find suitable images. But one of these 4 will work.
Which one would you choose and why?
