Sunset @ Lake Pier, Poole Harbour

Taken a while ago, but I am going through some of my older images (keywording, rating etc. really boring) and thought I would put this up.

Taken tripod mounted because of the low light but where the tide was dropping fast on a spring tide the current left trails on the image and the boats were obviously not still. Even though the subjects of the picture are slightly blurred, i still like this one.

It's very dreamy Steve. I really like the softness, very tranquil and peaceful.

Thanks Moonie.

I fall in to the same sort of trap a lot of us do in thinking all images have got to be pinsharp. Sometimes a bit of softness can actually improve an image, portraiture for an example.

Cheers

Fantastic colours Steve - I too actually thought the blur was deliberate. It's a very nice image.
