After a great sunny but cold afternoon wandering up and down the hills around Maddox Cove, I came in Petty Harbour and discovered that incredible row of small sheds. They look so fragile but I'm sure some have been there for a few decades.
See also the pictures from Jim for more shots.
If I'm not mistaken, it's the place where the movie "Orca" was made.
This picture is originally in color but I decided to make a B&W print. I then reinforced the contrast digitally and cropped a bit to eliminate the washed out sky. Yes I know, split neutral density filters do exist and I have one, but I never think about using it :)

Compositionally I like this a lot - the way the sheds lead off along a diagonal is quite pleasing and the foreground and background are suitable - is pretty well framed and composed and the B&W approach works too. Its a shame about the burnt out highlights in the sky and on the foremost shed though but that's the only thing wrong with it IMO. Interesting subject matter.

I will try and get a few photographs of Maddox Cove in the spring or summer Nicolas. This photograph is very nice except the white is a little too white. I tried a workshop without success but I will try one later today . Thank you for mentioning my name in your notes . Talk to you soon, jim

haha, oke, won't talk about the filter then. Are they just summerhouses you think? Great spot! Maybe it's truly a place where orca's pass?!
Great composition with those rocks in the front and the diagonal line of the sheds.
