Low Light Again: Another sailboat

The water on this one was also very blue, extremely blue, just as it came from the camera. In order to make it look less starkly blue, I selected the water with the magic wand and selected the color of the sail and paintbucketed that color over the water at a low let opacity to overlay. This one was taken a few minutes earlier than the other. Mary Stebbins Taitt. Posted by Picasa

What a strange boat. Is that a catamaran? Actually although the blue on the other one didn't look real I did like the dramatic look of it more than this.

Those lines you have in the sky on this and more so on the other one. I get them when I have underexposed. I have always wondered if it was my camera or if all digital cameras do it.

probabaly, the earlier pix don't have them.

I don't know boats. I sailed for a while as a teen but haven't kept up.
Only sailed occasionally with friends as an adult.

I just meant did it have two hulls. But probably you wouldn't have noticed from this angle.

I think it did. I distinctly saw two hulls on several boats and I think this was one of them. :-D

I thought it looked like it must have. But I have never seen one that strange shape before.

It is a little strange indeed!!!

I loved the shiny sails and took more of them in the sunset light than any of the others.

I think with the shape of the boat it looks like a small catarman. but what do I know. Have been on one years ago and just remember the shape, have never seen this shape on other sailboats....
