Getting Artistic Down on the Quayside

The colours and textures of the fishing equipment on the quayside of any harbour or port is manna from heaven for photographers and Dunbar Harbour is a good source of inspiration for a bit of artistic  snapping.

The rusty rings and coloured ropes of the trawling equipment at Cromwell Harbour had me reaching for the Fujifilm X-T1 and 16-55mm f2.8 lens to get some close up shots.  The rust coloured iron work contrasts nicely with the green and yellow net and the frayed ends of the rope adds to the textures.

Shooting at f2.8 means there is a wonderfully shallow depth of field to the final images.  The files were completed by sending them through NIK Analog EFEX to give the images an old school chrome finish with the slightly muted colours.
