Default 4 faces of a subject - or boat, 4 times....

I have been bored for some time now - my outside-world has been boringly snow-white for the past 3 monts or so - and I am running out of motives to shoot (they are all snow, anyway...).

So, today I found a picture I have been fooling around with a little, and decided to make 4 different edits of it.

Yes, and I know I should have gotten the whole boat, but I was already with my back against a wall, trying to catch as much as possible of it. There was only this rather narrow dock to stand on - and a slippery one as well, full of snow and ice.

Maybe you like one of the 4 edits?

Hey Walter,

Thanks for sharing these. We are finally starting to warm up around here the last week or so. Starting to get days in the 60's again. All of our snow is long gone - hopefully until next winter.

#1 Looks great to me!

I like number #4 - it is very unique - would make a nice poster but might be better with more of the boat.

#2 in B/W is okay but not near as good as #1 nor as interesting to me as #4

#3 Sepia - It just doesn't do anything for me - especially when I can easily look back at #1 and #4.

Andy

Thank's for commenting, griffina6!

Well - as I said - I was bored and I thought that the sepia- and / or B&W-look would suit the boat, after all it is a wooden-boat from the 1950's or 1960's and I was trying to create a contemporary mood....

I like them all. I like the clear colors and contrast of open space on the boat and busy detail behind

Since the basic photo leaves something lacking in terms of composition I think that #4 (watercolor) presents it in the most appealing fashion.
