ENGLISH: This is another POV of Eddie's Boat, a shipwreck on Maghercloher Beach, Bunbeg County Donegal. This area is part of the Gaeltacht region, where Irish Gaelic is the primary language spoken. On this winter's day, the beach was deserted except for 2 other people walking their dog. As I've mentioned before, this shipwreck featured in the film clip "Once In A Lifetime" by Bono and Clannad.
Technically-speaking, I do not normally like "slanted" photos, but I did so in order to include my own shadow (badly overweight from drinking too much Guinness) to make a different composition. As to other POVs of the boat by myself and other photgraphers, please see my THEME "Eddies Boat & Other Shipwrecks".
ITALIANO: Questo è un altro POV di Barca di Eddie, un relitto su Spiaggia Maghercloher, Bunbeg, Contea di Donegal. Questa zona fa parte della regione Gaeltacht, dove il gaelico irlandese è la lingua principale parlata. Su questo giorno di inverno, la spiaggia era deserta, con l'eccezione per 2 persone altri piedi con il loro cane. Come ho detto prima, questo naufragio presenti nella filmclip "Once In A Lifetime" di Bono e Clannad.
Parlando tecnicamente, io di solito non piacono "obliqua", le foto, ma l'ho fatto al fine di includere la mia ombra (troppo grasso a causa da bere troppo Guinness) a fare una composizione diversa.

Une tres belle image avec de jolie couleurs.
Mais cette image a mon avis aurais plus etre encore plus belle si l'immeuble a droite etait hors champs. De plus ta presence sur la photo n'est pas tres estetique dommage.

An interesting and quirky composition and a good way of getting your picture surreptitiously onto TE :-) I like the way the light plays across the old timbers and the golden sands. A very nice way of spending the evening drinking 'the black stuff' though I seem to end up with a headache the following day these days ;-)

Makes you think you've got a balance problem this one Lisa.
It (and your shadow) does work well given that shipwrecks never keep correct horizontal levels. The colour is great.Haven't been up that for in Ireland but I did see the ship wreck that featured in Father Ted (on one of the Aran Islands). I must search and see if my photo of it is up to TE standard!

I like the long shadow of the photographer & the textured details on the rippled sand. The diagonal tilt certainly adds dynamism. Good sharpness & colour. Tfs!

Here you break rules quite creatively. Your shadow is a fun way to provide sense of scale to this wreck. Low winter light is excellent. And there certainly is enough tilt to not look like an accident.

finalmente l'hai trovata, l'Arca di Noè :))
Mi piace molto il POV da te scelto e l'inclinazione che hai dato.
Bello il riflesso del palazzo nella pozza d'acqua e la tua ombra per terra in quanto dà dinamicità alla scena.
Ottima la gestione delle luci.

Ciao Lisa, bella composizione con l'ombra che si staglia accanto al relitto, affascinante, splendida luce, brava, ciao Silvio

wooow, how original is this tilting framing, I really like it! Original as well your choice of including the shadow close to the wreck. A good photo job,
have a nice day!

una chicca la tua ombra lunga accanto al relitto della nave...
Colori molto belli con tinte dorate baciate dal sole.
Ottimo il POV ,brava

Fine perspective of the Eddie's Boat
Amazing colours and light
Interesting tilt effect
TFS and have a nice day

una bella composizione, dove trovo molti elementi interessanti, la tua ombra una specie di autoritratto....

Very impressive photo, excellent POV, excellent perspective distortion, fantastic dynamic diagonal lines that contrast beautifully with the curves of the shipwreck! Perfect light management and brilliant colours! Great "selfportrait" too ;-)

I'm not a fan of slanted photos either, but this one really works, especially with the clouds. And the boat seems more like a monster than a vessel! Great shot.
As far as the shadow goes - overweight?? Look at those long legs!!

I was immediately struck with the 'angle of the dangle'. Yes, I like this composition. Great considerations (perhaps, helped along by a Guinness or two). I like the colours and effects the afternoon sun has created. Also, I like the reflections in various pools of water.

Shipwrecks are my passion!
Quite an artistc composition, blessed by a wonderful light and lovely textures. Generally I don't like tilted photos but I have to admit that in this case it's all right! (:-)
(vedo che anche tu la pensi come me!) Belle anche le nuvole e il contrasto cromatico tra il blu del cielo e la sabbia gialla.

Great shot ! I love the original diagonal framing to include your shadow. The evening light is great and gives nice colours.

This looks like some scene out of a scifi movies. the shipwreck kind of looks like a monster of some sort with it mouth wide open ready to take a bite of the person reprsented by the shadow.
Great shot, I love the warm tone of the low golden light. The long shadow is wonderful making the person, which I assume it's you, much taller, like a little giant. Must be nice to have the whole place to yourself.
Thanks, have a great day.
Kielia (24077) 2009-09-29 11:32
you are a very creative photographer and here I like how you are creating a balance between the boat and yourself ! I don’t know if this was your intention or the effect of too much Guiness, but the result is exciting anyway. The low light is also very beautiful. My compliments!
Fellini (6407) 2009-10-12 9:26
i like the POV planning, the long shadow and the warm colours are a good idea.
This boat is really an interesting subject...well done.

I love dropping into your Ireland album :)
I love your angle on this, and including your shadow makes a beautiful human element to the shot. Very nice capture indeed!
