  3. Glad you posted this in colour. I was about to ask for the colour version from other post because i felt the blue waters will actually make it look prettier.

    • White balance ws the culprit, the sun was getting pretty low and just as i was about to push the shutter release, a cloud came across the sun, the white balance turned the water more of a pea green (the black and white shot), this one however came out right on the money.

      • Hmmm, I need to get me a DSLR some day. I’ve been using a nikon l120 untill now.

      • dude, I still have (an sometimes still use), my Nikon 6006 from my high school days back in the 80’s! There is just nothing like shooting film, I only wish it was faster! I often use it for my “personal time” shots. I may need to start getting those images scanned and using them, just to show what an amazing medium that film is. Thanks so much for your comments Irfan, really got me thinking about my film work now!

      • Most welcome mate. Even my father says the same thing about it. I never did shooting with film. Do share some of your film shots.

    • Such an awesome comment, thanks! That is exactly the goal…to draw the viewer right into the shot. Thank you!
