I followed Mary's suggestion about using the eraser at low opacity on the edges but it left a pale blue instead of white behind it. So I used a white brush at low opacity. Thanks for the suggestion Mary. An improvement I think. I didn't want to take it any further in.
Questions: Which do you like better as a photograph? WHich is a better representation of High Key??

I loved the circles and lines, but ironically, this was painted a nice flat black and I took it as a low key image and my flash washed it out so bad it looks white! Aiee!

June 19: Wind: leaves blowings, sails, laundry on line etc, anything to do with wind
It was windy on this day but I emphasised it by intentional camera movement up and down. Just keep your finger on the button and take as many as you can and throw most of them away. It is simply luck although I do find I prefer the up/down movement to any other - take that whichever way you like!
We were caught up in this National Laser SP3 series race going on off of West Mersea last Sunday. This was the race that we watched the prize giving in the hope that Charlotte and her colleague would meet up with eligible bachelors!
So this was taken from our boat. I took some of the same race 2 years ago just after I had my camera and hadn't realised that on full zoom hand held I needed a minimum speed of 400 so I was quite please to get another go at it. It is very hard to compose a shot when your own boat is going up and down. Also it is impossible to get a straight horizon so always means a bit of straightening.
