[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Waiting for Lobsters” is the name of this photo taken at a wide angle (10mm) as the sun sets on Mortier Harbor.
The crab pots are at the end of the pier waiting for the proper price to be settled.
A feed of lobster would certainly be a real treat.

Boa noção de composição, Jim. Gostei do seu ponto de vista e da profundidade de campo conseguida aqui. A abertura do diafragma foi apropriada para esse tipo de cenário. Boa nitidez, bom tratamento. Parabéns!


Hello Jim
What a beautiful landscape you present today. The perspective is perfect as well as the depth of field. Nice blue sky and white clouds. A great shot
Nicely done

Hello Jim,

Excellent point of view. The wide angle works very well. The boats are unique. The clouds also provide a bit of dramatic effect.


Hi Jim,
I love the mood of the light in this photo a lot. Your composition with the crab pots in the FG and the boats on the left is very good and allows for a pleasant scroll through the photo. There are a few things that could be improved. First is the tilt. It feels as if it leaning to the right. Second is the DOF. With such a wide angle an smaller aperture would have been better. You did focus correctly, but the shaprness starts to drop soon after the pods. Try this with say F16. And last, the right side of the sky. The sun was too powerful to exposure it corretly. Either wait for the sun to drop or use a grad ND over that area.
