    Llandanwg, near Harlech, Gwynedd, North Wales.

    Ive been photographing this boat for around 8 years now.
    I fear this may be the last time I get some 'intact' images of the boat itself, the harsh winters on this coastline has taken it out on poor old 'Nemo' the last couple of years.

    Nice shot Mark.
    Got the exposure just right and it feels like I'm actually there myself.

    right on Mark. Brilliant shot!
    what were your tools to capture this beauty?

    Panasonic GF1, 14-45 kit lens, 81b warm filter, nd8 grad and polariser. Slight tweaking of the RAW file, and sharpening to get past the diffraction at f16.

    I bought the GF1 to use as a lightweight, go anywhere landscape view camera. Like most digital camera's, if you work around its sensor limitations with use of filters, impressive results can be got from this brilliant little camera.

    Wow, anything beyond a UV filter is too complicated for me! What was your shutter speed with that filter/aperture combination?

    Be sure to use a tripod and bobs your uncle!

    Wrecks are fascinating. I like old abandoned buildings too. Great photo.

    Do you have any close up shots of portions of the wreck - the colours and textures could be nice. I bet it would look great in B&W too.

    Will this do?, until I work on some of the other shots from the day.
