[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken this morning down at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland. The Boat Show starts this week and most of them are in place. There is a lot of money floating around.

Used a slow shutter speed to give the water a glassy look
PP work adjusted levels - original was a bit under-exposed

Awesome shot Jack,
It's great to appreciate something like these masts,
through a reflection upside down and presented as a piece of artwork. Well done!

So you're off to the boat show are you Jack?
Super image - those reflections look great, nicely composed. Good PP work as there's no under-exposuer here now.

Very good shot, Jack!
Beautiful reflections creating fantastic 'pattern'. Technically excellent, with nice lighting and tones. Very eye-catching:)
Thanks for sharing,

great colours and reflections

I like this. Great colors with good contrast. I think it might be more effective rotated 180deg.


Hi Jack,
this is beautiful, the colours are superbs and the wave of those mats look fantastic. well spotted and well presented.

Great effect Jack, good detail and colouring :)

Nice one. Good clean tones and crisp sharpness even with the moving water.
Colours and geometry combine to make this work.

Hi Jack !
clever idea. Great delivery :-)
Well done. Best regards, Daniel

I quite like this, there is enough detail to identify the objects as masts, but the squiggles give the interest component.
