Joy's Seascape Photo

This isn't my photo, but David and I are running a photography course at our local U3A and each session we have a different subject.

At the end of last year we asked our members to send us seascape photos and we will show them at our first session of this term next Wednesday.

Our friend Joy send this photo and I just loved the simplicity of it. I asked her if it was okay to post it on 365 and she said that would be fine. I am sure she would appreciate your comments.

She told me that the misty feel to this photo is a combination of morning mist and smoke from the fires.

I will send her a link so she can read your comments to her beautiful photo. I am sure she would love to hear what you think of it. I think it looks gorgeous on black.

Joy says she is a complete beginner and uses her phone for photos. I think she has done so well with this photo.
A stunning capture and a wonderfully peaceful scene. I wish I could join your course Babs ;-)

Well done Joy.. It is fantastic.. It reminds me of a shot I got when travelling in the South Island at the Moraki Boulders bay ..

I will be quite analytical. A horizon with sea and sky would mostly work well with rule of thirds. In this case the centre works because the weather has left very little delineation between sea and sky. The choice of composition works well with the power of three with the boats. Happily the boats are facing into the space and masts extending into the sky add to picture. It is a powerful record of the smoke haze and how it effects colour in everything else.
Keep up the good work, Joy and I agree with the Serenity comments above.

I think Ethel said it all very eloquently above. Well done, Joy.

Excellent job Joy! Ethel has done a great job analyzing the strengths of your composition (which I love!) so I will offer you a bit of encouragement in the camera department. There is a saying that the best camera is the one you have with you! And you have done really well with your phone as your camera so don't hesitate to stop using it as your means of recording a picture. Your eye for a shot is really good and that's what counts the most. In fact some camera phones are now as good as a simple point and shoot- and they take good shots too! This is a beautiful shot and you should be proud of it!

It's a wonderful composition, with the three boats drawing me in, but the lovely soft feel from the misty morning.
