Got to this wreck towards midday so I decided to shoot with B&W conversion in mind.
(It is at Dicky Beach, QLD, Australia)

What are you thoughts? Wanting feedback in terms of composition and PP

Thanks in advance

#1 I would ditch not a sharp image
#2 I would crop as a panorama and get rid of most of the foreground
#3 and #4 not a big fan of the clouds


So if God made Man & Woman....whats his excuse for Nikon...

Didn't mind #1, like #2 better, really like #3, and #4, I think it gives it kind of an otherworldly effect, on #3 maybe get rid of the open sky at the top.

#1 seems oof. I really like the other three, although I agree with TLMair about the open sky on #3.

Here is one other in the mix (a longer exposure, using stacked polarisers as a makeshift variable ND) - How does it stack up to the others? If I were to print one, which one would it be?

I'm personally liking the entire set. Just has a spooky erie feel to it which is giving me the shivers but it's just a great set of images imho. I personally like #4 the most as with the long exposure it looks like the ship is rising out of the waves to drag some poor soul back to the deep

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

Yeah I like this last one too, just wondering which is the front, at first it seamed obvious but the more I look at it the less sure I become.
Also just wondering why did they leave it there rather than move it out?

I really like 3, I'd crop out the clear sky though. Looks like a strange sculpture. The others are very nice too, but a bit conventional, like many other shots of similar wrecks. Not to say I'd not be happy with them, but 3 is really nice and different, more eye catching and interesting to me.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

I'm really loving #2 - the break in the clouds is really interesting :)

I agree I am a fan of the whole set. #1 is my least favorite just cause it is not as sharp and #4 probably my favorite.

This one is a winner! Fabulous subject matter and excellent composition. I probably would have also tried a longer exposure, maybe with the big stopper.
