Default Fishing Boats

Here's a shot of some fishing boats taken with E-M10 & the 14-42mm EZ zoom (pancake zoom). Used a stone wall as a makeshift tripod as I wanted to use a longer exposure to get a smoother looking water and used Dramatic Tone Art Filter setting. Always use Natrual Picture Mode and don't do a lot of post processing besides a tweek of exposure, WB or a bit of curves adjustment when required.
Getting a bit creative must be getting inspired by some of the great Photographers on this forum.




Here's the same shot in Natural Picture Mode

Well done! I much prefer the first photo, very dramatic looking.

I agree with James. My choice is also shot number one. I really like the the dramatic lighting and the composition.

Thanks everyone, I do like the first one a lot but thought it might look a bit to arty or fake (over processed) when compared to a normal photo (standard picture mode).

I'm with you Tom, I like the original the best, there are too many blow highlights in the 1st one for me although the shadow detail is slightly better.

great subject, great light and well captured, I like both very much although my preference is the natural one.

Looks like I'm in a minority because I like #2.
