    Nice shot. Maybee flip it horisontally, so that the ship sails into the frame?

    Lars :-)

  • Thank you Lars for your kind thoughts on this image – I did ss you suggest but strangely this version haas done very well Iin competitions. And it is getting a bit long in the tooth and it is probably too well known. to change now..

    Thanks Coffeetea for your interest. The evening sunset, the camel rides, and the resident pearling lugger, are the highlights of the tourism town of Broome which is an extremely remote location on the Kimberley coast of West Australia.

    Good morning Lars. Thanks for your comment. I intended to catch the lugger on the right hand side of the sun but was delayed by the camel riders on the beach. I have tried your suggestion (using Photoshop) but this version did better in competition so I posted it.

    A well designed image. The placement of the ship in the frame is good.

    Great shot John.
    My feel is to take half the beach out, to make it more panorama. The first part of the beach lacks interest.???

    Mark – on reflection I tend to agree with you; but within limits as i am trying to keep the horizon away from the centreline. JRF
