It's a nice shot but seriously under-exposed. I took the liberty of checking the Levels in Photoshop and the difference a bit of post processing work makes is remarkable.
Best wishes,

Andrew

It's a beautiful composition. I am probably with Andrew on this one as I am one for ensuring the levels in my images are right, but on the other hand I think the sombre light actually suits the mood too.

Interesting that Andrew and David comment on underexposure as the finished image is rather lighter than the actual conditions at the time. The sky was almost black and the rocks are lit by the street lights on the promenade behind, the lights on the ship are overexposed in reality. A difficult balancing act I suppose which didn't quite come off Thanks for your comments.

After taking another look at this photo, I seriously see nothing here to complain about. I like it just the way it is...still strikes me as a beautifuly presented image...IMHO! 😉
Cheers...Donna 😊

Thanks Donna, It's appreciated. I like discussing images and don't mind at all if members see faults in them (and say so !!) thanks to all who commented.

It wasn't meant as a criticism as such. More a suggestion of how I'd do it. After some work in Photoshop, those rocks and cliffs glow with life while the sky remains threatening and dark.
Best wishes,

Andrew

No problem Andrew, we all have different interpretations of a scene. A happy Christmas and New Year to you and your family and all at PENTAXUSER.

I would imagine that by increasing the exposure the ship would be blasted right out of the water! I like the shot!
