In St Aubins bay in Jersey, CI, I saw this row boat as well. The lighting on and around this boat was originally brighter, but I wanted only the boat to be highlighted. Although I don’t usually do this, I really increased the contrast and brought the light around the boat down. I am pleased with the overall effect and look forward to finding more small boats to add to the collection in the future.

ISO 160, (shot darker on purpose for post processing done entirely in iPhoto) Increase the contrast and exposure, and adding some darker tones to black out the already dark background to isolate the details of the boat. I wanted to leave it with a very rustic feeling. I only worked with the elements there. I didn’t add or take away anything in the shot.
