<<< o >>>wyre wreck #15 15 comments + add yours

I mentioned that I'd been up to the wyre wrecks with Craig the other day and as I was browsing through his site this evening and noticed that he had posted a shot of one them that I also photographed on the day. I didn't process it at the time, but thought I'd see what I could do with it this evening.

If you compare his to mine you'll see that we've gone for quite different interpretations. I'm not suggesting that you compare them - they're both very different - but I would be interested to hear what you think of this one.

Hmm, very different interpretations. I get quite an "old" vibe from this one, especially with the pinkish hues. I like it, seems light and happy.

Interesting. Virtually pastel. I think a little deeper black would help. To me, the most interesting parts are what you chose not to emphasize, so unlike you. In that, you've made it anti-chromasia, which is, as said, interesting. I do like it, but the comment on the blacks still stands.

what a beautiful wreck ... looks like a giant shark took a bite out of it !

The sky looks too green and the clouds too pink. The hull on Craigs shoot gets totally lost the deck just floats in the sky. Sorry for the negative comment, most of your shots far surpass anything I can do.

I like it, though would prefer this shot in the dramatic processing of yours. For me the colors are too bright for the subject, but it does look little surreal and its appealing to me. Good work.

I like the lightness of your wreck ;) showing interesting details on the deck and also the dramatic atmosphere of Craigs' surrounding. A combination of both would have been interesting.

I love the simplicity of your shots. They seem so natural and at ease. I wish I could take photos like you.. :)

I like the composition a lot - but I find the pinkness distracting.

I really like this, the colors are beautiful.

Beautiful pastel tones, I like it a lot!

I think this is the first (or maximum the second) image on chromasia which I really don't like. The colors are terrible and the contrast is flat. The subject could be very interesting but with this appearance, it is still boring to me.
Sorry David, you missed it this time, I think.

Thanks everyone.

I suspect there may be a monitor calibration issue going on here as there's only the merest hint of pink in the version I'm looking at (on both my computers) ;-)

Lovely colors. Beautiful shot.

Looks like some giant has taken a few bites from it

I like the skey more than the wreck. you can remove the wreck and it would remain an interesting pic
