Small boat on the shore at The Cobb, Lyme Regis; 3 Nov 2004.

This shot started life with the boat’s prow in the sea and its stern up on the pebbles of the beach.  This is not a very interesting composition and so, in a fit of Minimalism, I’ve reduced everything except the boat to blackness, and the whole thing now more resembles a museum exhibit in its case than anything actually on the seashore.  This image was toned in SEP2, and this slight colouration also helps to create an air of unreality.

OM-4 with 50mm Zuiko; Fuji Provia 400 colour slide rated at 1600 ISO; converted to mono, and further manipulated, in Silver Efex Pro 2.

    • Thanks, Helen! Actually, looking at it again now, it could be an old building, something or other religious in Italy perhaps, with 3 small doors at the bottom, and a decorated facade above! Adrian

  1. Man, this is a superb one, really very impressive my friend. It really is one of those that one can put on one’s wall, most definitely on my wall! You should be really proud of yourself on this beautiful example of b&w photography at it’s very finest.
