Whitehaven harbour sunset and blue hour shots

Here are some shots from a very cold afternoon at the haorbour. The susnet was not great and the wind was strong but the waves were small.


The West pier taken from the North pier a long exposure as the sun was setting

After that shot I walked over to the West Pier and shot a long exposure looking southe to ST Bess head the moon moved further than I expected in three minutes

I then went onto the golden sands beach in the harbour to shoot the Old new quay qith the west pier in behind.

Re: Whitehaven harbour sunset and blue hour shots

They’re lovely. I must have missed these on my Flickr feed. The sea makes for a lovely negative space in the first and second, but the lighting gives the third more impact, I think.

#3 for me too. Just a fraction of leveling needed.

Re: Whitehaven harbour sunset and blue hour shots

Alf for me I'd prefer the first two cropped to letterbox panoramas getting rid of a lot of the empty spaces. The last one I'm afraid I just don't like, sorry. Not sure why, can't quite put my finger on it, but it just doesn't work for me.

Thanks Andrew

I will recheck the level of the shot but it was set as level for the sea

I like the negative space on the first 2. The last is one of those marmite shots Phil I suspect.
