Boat Passing Under Bridge by jyokota

Boat Passing Under Bridge

Standing and talking to Taffy when we noticed the boat coming towards the bridge we were on. Quickly put my camera into Auto, leaned my tripod (legs were folded up to leave) against the bridge with no time to setup, and surprise!

Taffy's photo taken just before the bridge went by (which will help you see why the water ripples are red and white): http://365project.org/taffy/365/2016-12-02
Beautiful!

Amazingly lit water ripples, looks like the boat has wings. Fave.

Beautiful image, I would have expected more noise on 10000 ISO, performance of the 6D seems to be good in low-light conditions

What a great capture! Without the title I would have had to work out what was going on! Fav

Brilliant and such fast thinking!! You had a nano-second to get ready for this and it came out SO great!!

The watery reflections from the boat's wake are really beautiful. Plus, you captured a bonus star. :) Hooray for lightening fast reflexes!

While loving Taffy's photo, I wasn't expecting this beauty when she wrote about the boat coming through!!!
December 3rd, 2016  
Love it, really great shot for such a quick reaction!
December 3rd, 2016  
What a super effect, well done :) Is it just me who can see what looks like two soldiers in old uniforms under the bridge on the right?
December 3rd, 2016  
It's a superb image and what a great lesson that we can all learn from - putting the camera into Auto without a second thought got you a perfect image that you would have otherwise missed.

Taffy put the link to this shot so had to check it out. Excellent timing what a great photo. fav.

Thank you all for your wonderfully supportive comments! Domenico, I had a chuckle over the implication that the decision to do this was genius. But as Richard says, we can all learn from what Auto setting can do in a pinch! I had no time to think, except, "I have to capture this." Be sure to take a look at Taffy's photo taken just before mine, which shows why the water ripples in this photo are red and white. In fact, that "circle reflection" was what drew us to the scene. Thanks again! http://365project.org/taffy/365/2016-12-02

Good reminder to use Auto when in a hurry to catch the shot. The more I look at this shot, the better I like it. And my starting point was to like it very much.
December 4th, 2016  
I think this is a really cool effect from the boat that came through. Both yours and Taffy's are wonderful photos. Super clear detail. FAV
December 4th, 2016  
timing, serendipity & a great shot - those reflections are just cr-AAA-zy!! fv
December 4th, 2016  
Great shot. Love the light catching on the wake.

Love this fantastic capture of the barge, and colored light waves
