Isle of Harris

Filed under: Mike — sojournerphoto @ 23:38

Just printed this the other night using the new Epson 3880 and on Fotospeed Baryta paper. It made a very lovely print. Funny to have a couple of landscapey pictures in succession, but been ver busy at work and home, so perhaps something more tranquil is called for…

  1. This is a really lovely image. My mind cries out for the jetty to be square on, but if you really wanted this it could be done in post. I’m a little anal about my perspectives. :o) I also really like the look if the land is gone from the base. A version with the land cloned out and the jetty straightened would be fun to compare. great image and well seen.

  2. I am sure that the Harris tourist board would want to use this – enticing.

    Those reeds and their reflections are beautifully caught and would make a Japanese-style picture on their own. I think that the boat and the jetty are in the right place and I don’t have Antony’s urge to be square on. My feeling is that the angle of shooting complements the lines of the reeds. I imagine that the print is very good.

    A lovely shot.

  3. The reeds really make this a winner for me and the thin strip of land holds the base of the picture well. You know I’m a stickler for a base to a photo, it gives me somewhere to place my feet.
    Slight angle of jetty feels good but I may not have minded a perfect square T either. I’ll never know because I’d put this on a wall as is.
    This has got to make a great print.

  4. I love the reeds too, their subtlety and texture are contrasted beautifully with the foreground and the cleanliness of jetty/boat.

    I am a bit like Antony with my engineering drawing approach to images but this looks good to me.
