    You must have been in your waders or you brought a dinghy along for this one John LOL…
    Great shot..well worth a fave for me..
    I might have just cloned out the mast on the right..

  • Hi Jason, it was actually taken from the Boat Club Car Park with the 70-300. Its a fair comment about the mast, thanks.
    Its a first attempt converting 1 image into 3 and altering the exposure in ps. The original shot was disappointing but I wanted to gauge reaction on here after the edit.

  • You are right Jason, looks better without the mast. Thanks.

    Each time I view an image of the “Good Hope” she seems to be deteriorating rapidily – such a shame!! This is a super shot of her with great colours and tones !!

  • Thanks Mattie for your comment. The ‘old girl’ is seriously falling apart. I was talking to the owner of the boatyard (he is very pro photographer and is happy for us to wander around his yard). He was telling that over the last 3 owners he has continually sold them supplies as they try to renovate her.
    There is something about her that captures the hears of photographers and sailors alike.

    I find a bit of HDR work on some shots does it the world of justice as in this case I guess..good stuff mate..

  • As I said I’m just starting out on my HDR journey, have hardly even opened the box on the potential but I’m now looking at shots stored in a special file titled C.R.A.P. and seeing potential in some of them.

    LOL…C.R.A.P…Like it…Believe me..You will do some HDR work and in 12 months time go back to it and do it totally different as in my recent work..I am just doing one now that I put up a couple of years ago and already I can see a big difference in my processing..

    I need to learn patience Jason, I have been told by several people I have a natural eye for the picture but I tend to rush the procesing side. Maybe because at the moment its more good luck than skill. I am a pragmatic learner (do rather than read).

    Excellent work John, I’ve never seen the water so high on The Good Hope before, (Except when I refloated it as a Ghost Ship,)Brian

  • Thanks for your comment, the day I went it was a 9.6 metre tide. I arrived just in time to get to the Boat club car park after a couple of ‘damp feet’ shots of the Good Hope from the road. Surprising what you can find to take pictures of when you are ‘trapped’ for 3 hours! Seriously I love the place at high tide but will be taking a flask of coffee next time I go. Lol.
