'Anchors Aweigh'

Post by davechinn »

Approximately 6:30 A.M. in Wiscasset, Maine, Minnie and I headed out for an early photo shoot with our first series of photos being this huge anchor placed next to The Taste of Maine Restaurant. This restaurant has a 70 feet long and 12 feet high lobster on the roof.They have named him Larry the Lobster. I have no clue as to why I didn't capture a shot of the rooftop lobster.If anyone cares to see Larry, here is a link for your viewing. https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/maine/e ... s-food-me/ Either way, this post is about the anchor rather than Larry the lobster.

The anchor image was taken just prior to or at sunrise which seems to have created a dramatic scene. We did have some lighting help from the car headlights, but I'm not totally convinced they were needed. The lights were never turned off, so we will never know. Comments, thoughts & feedback would be greatly appreciated. Maybe Minnie will post some of her's as well. Maybe she has some of Larry on the rooftop?

Overall I like the image Dave...when carefully viewed the light from the headlights is noticeable..whether that's good or bad who's to say......I do think a tad of toning down on the anchor resting pad and anchor point might improve....

Well I took no photos of the giant lobster either. Not sure why, it would be an interesting component! I’ll add one of my efforts with the anchor, which will be both similar and different...

This one is nice. The colors were great that morning!

nice, heavy, iconic. The sun sets off the iron. The iron sets off the sun - they belong together.

Here's my version, shot a little before Dave's while the sun was more orange than magenta. It was a very lurid sunrise.

Thanks Frank. Yes, the headlights gave us a little to work with. Of course I didn't bring the flash...
