Forgive me please. But, I find this photo very interesting and intriguing. Maybe this is not the right place to ask, but as you know I am home bound and can't take a class or meet-up with other photographers. So, I would like to ask some questions. What most intriques me is that the sun, by the shadowing, seems to be coming from the right side into the photograph. Yet, the sky behind the boat seems very bright with a rather unnatural tone or hue. While visually interesting, it is confusing. Also, the tone or hue of the background sky seems most similar to the hue of the boat's hull, yet the stern is a bright pink. Consequently, the coloration seems very confusing to me. Also, it seems there is a vignette along the top, the right side, and the left side of the photo, but not on the bottom. As a result of the vignette it seems to make the sky-background even brighter. So, this is my question: is this an overall tint affect? And, did you deliberately leave out the vignette on the bottom? It is a very interesting visual affect. But, my eye sees one thing and my brain has a lot of questions about what the eye sees.

Hi Bob, so... It is saturated on purpose to get unexpected colours and confuse people :-) If you look closer on a face of the worker, you'll see it's grey. with vignette - it goes all around the picture, but as it's relatevely light one, and there's much more happening on the bottom - it gets less contrast on than on the top of the picture. Cheers!

Thank you for taking the time to explain. Your photo was a success. It DID confuse me. Thanks again.

maybe not to confuse people, but to make it look different to what we are used to. it helps us open our eyes and look at things around us with more attention.

thanks for visiting!
