Boat on the Wye

Boat on the Wye < PreviousNext >
My wife and I went up to Monmouth again at the weekend to see Mother-In-Law. On the way back we stopped in Tintern to take a few photos. I have driven through the town probably nearly 100 times, but never stopped to take photos, which is a shame as it is a beautiful little village nestled in the Wye Valley. It was getting a little dark when we stopped last night, but I managed to get a few even with such a long exposure. My landscape skills are not upto much, so any tips are much appreciated!

Such a peaceful scene. The water is so calm, and those reflections add a subtle splash of colour to add to the blue of the boat.

Tintern is a lovely place, we went down for a long weekend a couple of years ago and stayed at the royal george hotel. The picture really shows the peacefulness of the place. I might have cropped the bank off the top of the photo and almost gone for the boat on its own but I'm no expert either. Did you get a nice shot of the abbey?

I really like the water colour here, so intense. I can't quite work out what the red reflections are, any ideas?

Love the reflection effects in this one Dave

I have difficulty navigating your blog I must confess. There are about three ways to view your images. Upon finding a new way to view your shots I stumbled upon this. I do like the reflections from that very calm water. I agree with AF in that I would have cropped the background somewhat and also perhaps cut the right a little to bring focus to the vessel. Bring it into that left hand bank. Believe me, you get that old CS crop tool out and you'll be amazed at what you'll achieve...

Tobias, I suspect you are not looking at my photoblog but my photography site if the latest posts are not showing up. Make sure the URL has blog/ at the end of it. As for cropping, I decided not to crop to the right as I really didn't want to put the boat central, as I think it makes it more interesting this way. Although the top bank could be cropped, I didn't want to crop it because I felt it would isolate the reflections in the water, and give no context to them being there.
