[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As my previous boat shot had created some good feedback and having recently purchased an infrared filter I decided to return to the same location to shoot again to experiment with infrared. I was very pleased with the results and hope you'll share your thoughts to me in your critiques and comments. The exposure for this shot was a massive 240 seconds or 4 minutes at f3.5 ! As the sun began to fall exposures were reaching 12 minutes and light was fading fast and so I returned home to upload and share. I hope your as pleased with the results as I am. Thanks for looking, Matt Stilwell.

Hi Matthew, Love the shot very different and very surreal.

Job well done!!!

Very nice sky and colors here. Points of critique: 1) The focus is a bit soft. This may create a more surreal image, but it also is a bit distracting. 2) There are some brightness issues you could probably fix in PP. The side of the boat is a bit light, and the wheel (and edges of the photo) is a bit dark. Otherwise, nice job!

quite a romantic image, (*_*)

Those colors are fantastic! I love the effect! If the trailer was not on the picture we could imagine it's a magic place... were boats can fly and landing in the sand! I like the degradee of ligh on it!

couleurs surréalistes mais qui donnent une ambiance à la photo !

Great image matt very moody shot i must check out your other pictures, well done

I am not that good at useful critisism, but I think that the angle is chosen well. Also i know that I like this shot very much, as it silently speaks to us.

This is a very interesting photo. It encourages me to get an infrared filter and experiment myself.

The clouds are fantastic and the composition is excellent.


You captured unique cloud formation! the lighting is fantastic.. nicely done...
with the color, giving the nostalgic, scary, feeling!

i think it can put for many design stuff, eg. book cover or even for some ads....

anyway, you provided such informative note. i'll be sure to give it try!
