Sail Away

This shot was taken at the cottage with my new RebelXT. This was the one of the weekends back in July when Julie and I were invited by her parents to go up north and stay at a cottage that one of their friends owned. These model sailboats were in the bay window that was facing Huron Lake. I loved the look of them so much that I had to take a shot. However, regardless of all the colour tweaking that I did they still just didn’t look right in the picture. I decided that it might be a better idea to try turning them black and white. The loss of the colour turned out to be (in my opinion) better and with a little darkening of the shadows this image turned out pretty well indeed.
