[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two fishing boat grounded on New Quay beach waiting for the tide.
The image works better in B&W. I took this one with my Lumix compact then addressed a few highlights on the sky with some burning of mid and high tones. A little stroke to complete and tidy up the edges.

I thought about kicking off a theme "If it floats" but couldn't find out how to set one up. If you know how, let me know.

Hi Dai, I like the choice of b&w, adds a bit of grunt to the sky. Go into 'manage' in your account and 'my themes' is the last heading on that page. It should come up with 'create theme' in blue even if you havent got any of your own themes already. Fiona

You got a wonderful drama into the scene, dear Dai!

Great clarity and nice POV for the scene.
The picture looks a kind of 3-D work, where the clouds add great drama here.
The B/W treatment to the scene adds to the overall appeal of the picture.
Well done!

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2012!

Best wishes,
