Sea Dolphin (Long Tail Boats), Thailand [Explored]

Another old shot, which I'd taken for the appealing dolphin carving on the prow of this long tail boat. I'd underexposed it in an attempt to get the sky too, but a "fill light" adjustment in Lightroom 3 has brought the boats back to life.

 

I must also admit to a half cm of cloning along the left most shoreline to remove an intrusive speedboat that invaded the shot. The sky is as it was out of the camera; polarising filter and underexposure doing a neat job on this occasion!

 

Long tail boats are Thai watercraft - neat little skiffs with ornate prows and long trailing poles for the outboard motor.
