  1. I love this post. When I was young in South Africa I had friends who lived on their yachts, and these photos remind me of exactly what the difference was between just being by the sea and being on a boat by the sea. Very, very well captured. I can almost hear the slop of the waves against boat hulls and piers, and smell the smells of the harbour.

  2. These are great N !
    I absolutely love taking photos by the sea -and the rope image is fantastic !!!! The texture conveyed by this shot means that I can almost feel that rough hairy surface…Please let me know what lens you used – and do you have any tips on how to capture such a wonderful textured effect across the whole image ?

    • That shot was done with my EF f/1.4 50mm lens. I love this lens a lot, especially the fact that I am in full control of what I am doing. I love to walk around my objects of interest, come closer or get a few steps back using variety of angles. My major goal is the composition of a shot, and I think that what set me apart from others, and I am aware of my weaknesses. I know that I have to learn so much more in terms of technology.
      I know a lot of very technical photographers, and their images are very good, sharp and clear, however I am not attracted to them , I guess because the “inventory” photography is way to cold and dry for my eye.
