View Full Version : Peggy's Cove, Part 2.

Here is the second part showing further along the Village, nearly at the Lighthouse. The third part will contain the Lighthouse, and views of the coast line. As usual, comments and critiques welcome and much appreciated.
This shot was taken from the wharf that is just behind the boats in the final shot of my first post. It was taken looking out to Sea.
This shot was taken from the same spot as the first. Again, we are looking out to Sea. I just loved these boats, and took about 20 pictures of them.
This shot was taken from beside the blue house in the top left of the final shot in my first post. Behind me is the lighthouse and a restaurant. It is a shot of pretty much the whole little Village. To the bottom right you can see the wharf where I shot the first 2 pictures in this post from.

I really like the second one, nice composition and colours. Check your horizons on the other two, they appear to be tilted. :-D

Love #2. The colors are perfect. Agree about checking your horizon.

Thanks Leonie and Monnie. Every single building there had a lean, and the coast line and shore are quite uneven and varying. I think I do need to straighten the third shot though, it's a bit more than leaning buildings and uneven terrain! Thanks for picking up on that.

I love all three, but, then, I am a sucker for the maritimnes and fishing villages. Is this near Pictou?
Very crisp and colorful with good composition.

Thanks Willard. Peggy's Cove is located on the opposite shore, and further south. About 45 minutes outside of Halifax, and about 2.5 hours from Pictou. Next time you are in Nova Scotia I would make it a point to visit. I'm longing to go back and spend the day there and get to shoot in the golden light of sunrise and sunset.
Leonie and Monnie, now that I look at the first shot longer I too think it could use a slight rotation. I will get some reworks up in the morning.

Brad, if you look at the little bit of sea horizon in #1 that will give you an idea that the photo is tilted. It needs approx 1.5 degree rotation clockwise.

I agree about the horizon tilt, but I also agree that the second image really is lovely. Very calming. It looks like a lovely place to be.

#2 for me as well. Looks like a nice place to visit.

Thanks again Leonie, Ruth, and Alan. I couldn't get enough of those boats. It really is a wonderful place to visit.

Brad, the two boats are excellent - a great example of:
1) the power of a spot of colour against a more muted background;
2) the power of simplicity in composition;
3) how details are often tell you more than a panorama.

Love the boat and reflections in the second one. Very pleasing and easy to look at.

Brad, #2 is it for me and I also like #3 just because it is so typical of that area. I think you can fix #2 a lot by doing a color correction on it. It has a lot of blue in there that would improve if you took some out. Probably caused by the fog/haze.

Thanks for taking the time to comment and help me out Tony, Steffie, Landis, and everyone.
I have added reworks to my original post in this thread. I rotated the first shot, but it still appears to be leaning. I think it is because the baseline of the rock on the right side is higher than that of the building. Thanks to Kathy for pointing this out. I took some blue out of the second shot, and rotated the third shot. Do they work any better now?

Good shots, love that 2nd one, that one is really great dude!

I find these really impressive. I like the low contrast of the water and sky combined with the higher contrast foregrounds. Nice white balance too.
