I love ferries. Just being out on the ocean, knowing that the ferry is taking me to some island destination.  This is the ferry from New London, CT to Orient Point on Long Island from our recent trip to the Hamptons.  It was quite foggy that morning with a little sun breaking through here and there, and that made the color of the bench really stand out.  I was also digging the yellow/orange lights that run along the top part of the boat.  As for the guy in the green hat, I was going to try and clone him out, but decided to leave him there as he adds some additional visual interest to the image.  Would you have left him in the shot or removed him?

    Great persecutive Steven. It’s funny, I have been in CT for 20 years and have never been on that ferry.

    I’m with you, Steven. When it comes to ferries, I’ve never seen one that I didn’t absolutely love. 😉

    I like the way you created this wonderful shot, man. Good stuff!

    I like the perspective of this shot Steven. I would have cloned out the guy in the green hat. My focus is following the lines of the bench so the green hat is a bit of a distraction.

    I have to admit I hadn’t noticed the guy in the green hat until I read the post. This shot is all about perspective – and that works extremely well. The green hat plays no part in that but I still think it is important to the overall composition. Clone out the hat and you have a very blank corner – the hat holds that corner in. Little points like that do actually help overall composition, I think
