Meanwhile ... rumours of cuts to budget for the latest Bond movie prove founded
"Dont worry about it" they said - "We'll fix it in post production" they said

Re: Challenge 896: Gordon on the water
Some lovely entries, I have got one to enter, it's on my laptop, so it will have to wait till tonight. I have got my iMac back but restoring all the data and apps is a lot harder after a total crash than when I do a fresh install and plan it.
I'll be out all day photographing Godwits before they fly off north again.

Anna - Very nice, the cabin in the rain is the one for me... the software has the option to make screen savers. I don't use a screen saver so I've never tried it.

Michael - That is one crowded boat dock... good one!

Gordon - Gotta' love b&w... well done!

Josephine - Bond no less... they need more money for sure.

vibeke - If you get a few shots of Godwits that you're happy with, I would love to see them. You could post them in the Photography section.

Thanks Loyd, Anna, Michael, Josephine
Like your silliness David
Lovely work Anna, well placed pieces, like the mystical scene
Gordon - Infrared ? - And NO - not interesting in buying - that boat already gave me enough headaches
Michael - larger dock perhaps - well done
Josephine - maybe Bond should consider "Go Fund Me" campaign

Thanks Loyd and Frank.

Yes, the sky is an infrared image that I shot last summer while visiting friends on the Isle of Wight. The sky was one of the most magnificent mackerel skies I can recall. The fact that it was black and white determined the final look of the image and the radically different perspectives of the boat and bridge dictated the positioning.

The black and white conversion used a Gradient Map Adjustment Layer.

Re: Challenge 896: Gordon on the water
When you come to think about it, it's rather sad.

That little boat, made by hand. Most probably a pension project, that offered pleasure and tranquility to some elderly couple...until there was none...and that boat would stand until to far gone, riddled with dry rot.

I knew an elderly friend who is long past now, who lived in holiday resort on the Umtumvuna River, where my eldest brothers and i who go water skiing.

The elderly gent Bob, had a boat identical to this one. On most pleasant evenings, he would be seen launching his boat with a bottle of whiskey clamped under his arm. He'd fish all night and return in the morning, bloodshot eyes and flushed cheeks but he wouldn't be spent. He was content. He would still stand around and tell of his nights experiences with a smile and a joke before pushing off for his morning coffee and cat nap. By noon he'd be up, chatting to all the folk, wading knee deep at the edge of the river, helping others moor there boat or offering advise to all around.

I know it is Gordon's photo but I'm going to dedicate this render to Bob. God bless his soul...

Gordon, thank you for that grand reminder of a grand old friend.

I thought you had used Boris when I saw parts of the video. Good to see you are getting to grips with it.
