On The Bay

Uploaded: February 28, 2013


I opted for selective color on this anchored sailboat in the San Francisco Bay.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/800 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 85.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D

The selective color really lets the boat pop out of the scene.
Nicely done, Christopher #10589443

I think I've shot that same sailboat, Chris! It looks great with the selective color treatment. #10592507

Huh; I wonder if it is the same, Martha! I had to clone out a pier that was behind the boat and mostly to the right in this scene.

If it was one of the piers at Aquatic Park, then I'm guessing it's the same. I've always liked that boat! #10595028

Thanks, Gary!
Martha, I don't remember exactly where I was - I think on a walk from Ghiradelli Square towards the base of the Golden Gate... Went out onto a breakwater (I think) a bit... #10595241
