This image was made at New Harbor maine. The back of the boat was on dry land, and the front of the boat was slapping the water. Creating these very interesting shapes in the water.The boat is called a Monhegan skiff, which are hand made locally. The boat’s design is in in the arts and crafts section of the Smithsonian because of their beautiful lines and practicality.
This is a straight shot no manipulation in camera or in Photoshop. Sometime it just all works out

    DUH! After commenting, I noticed that it’s not B&W! Unless you added the touch of color.

    I like it even more now! LOL!!

    yes it’s my mistake this is a black-and-white and color image combined. The purpose of this is to reduce the intensity of the digital color. To bring it more in line with human vision. But, I clicked the wrong box I think

    Great shot – love the composition, tones and patterns in the water. It all comes together very nicely – well done

    I love the simplicity of this shot. That such mundane objects can be so beautiful astounds me every day….. So many of us wander through life & just fail to notice the shapes & lights made by a boat slapping on the water………

  • Thank you for looking at the image and reading the description. It’s harder for me to write the description Then to take the picture. while my photographic goals, is to learn to see the simple. The spectacular is obvious. The intriguing is simple.
