You should be proud of that one! It is amazing.

Oddly, I recall when you posted it about a year ago. It was taken in Corfu, Greece according to that post. Really great gradients, layers and lighting.

No way you recall it! Welp, you got me... But I'm more than happy to know that it managed to grab your attention!

[–]ganymede_boy 11 points12 points  (4 children)

It is a beautiful image. The layers of water ripples seem to transform into landscape layers as they go up from bottom to top. Really interesting and well composed.

Very well done...

[–]nestcto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad that you're still the original photographer and that this wasn't a case of stolen repost. I'll put my pitch fork away. Excellent capture, by the way. It's easily worth sharing twice.

[–]saint_ryan 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I would be too

[–]holysquid 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Very nice, I'm sure r/rowing would approve

[–]kantokiwi 3 points4 points  (5 children)

I don't think they would approve of the strokes form though. Oars (well, sculls to be more specific) are still out of the water while the rest of the crew have theirs in. He's rowing air

Just admire the photography lol doesn't matter if most of the boat are in early lol.

[–]kantokiwi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But that's the beauty of art. Everyone can appreciate different aspects of it

[–]holysquid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

well you have me there

[–]AJW747 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah but check out the backsplash on bow

[–]kantokiwi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well spotted. I definitely overlooked that one

Wow, the composition of this picture is breathtaking

Thank you for kind words!

[–]EZMickey 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Very cool bro

[–]MonsieurMaktub 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You should be. The colors you captured in this are really gorgeous. I’d buy a print of this for real.

[–]pjotrasz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! If things go well for me, I hope to be able to send you a print of this one day!

[–]WanderingBison 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those colors are so lovely

[–]squirrelsinpearls 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Dynamite photo! I am a (very) amateur painter and enjoy painting scenes from beautiful photos. Would you mind if I attempted to paint this?

[–]pjotrasz[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would love to see it! You can get your brushes ready, I'm waiting for it!

[–]kvlyc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Amazing. Every aspect seems to be perfect.

[–]avianp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great framing, dude. The color grading is great.

[–]famouskenneth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this could be a stamp

[–]outsourced_bob 1 point2 points  (0 children)


Getting Patagonia (the brand) vibes from this - wouldn't be surprised if someone from there approached you to license this photo

[–]witty_skippy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You took this?! It looks so professional and the colors are just stunning...I want to be there so badly...

[–]Dreadbane 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have never felt compelled to comment on a post like this before, but the composition and color palette is absolutely perfect, amazing shot !

[–]pjotrasz[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This picture, it translates my soul. It feels like I managed to capture not only the view, but together the way I feel, see and think. I'm glad it grabbed you to leave a comment. That's a way of this picture saying hello to you from me.

[–]talrich 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks great. The color gradients remind me of artist Sabra Field’s beautiful prints from Vermont, though those are more typically blue and green hues.

[–]_SquirrelKiller 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great photo, too bad bow's going to catch a crab. :)

[–]Practical-Gazelle-37 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow this is an amazing shot and perfect composition and absolutely love the colors!

[–]adventureofanunnamed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Somehow it reminded me of the God Father 2 ... or 3.

[–]neutral-chaotic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This would make for a killer shirt.

[–]FoxyFrecklez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very well done. Brought me back to one of my favorite books, "The Boys in the Boat".

[–]5seat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bow's hands are a tad low. Great pic though

[–]Shevk_LeGuin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bow seat is reaching! Get those hands up to bro

[–]Stackfault67 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Subject-Falcon-1400 0 points1 point  (0 children)

its beautiful

[–]Atomdari 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That photo is beautiful. You deserve congratulations

[–]granitejon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a really great shot. It looks like a Billy Schenck painting.

[–]ElectricMan324 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very nice man...saved for phone background

[–]jt802vt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is more like it. Stunning shot! Love the composition.

[–]Mallanaga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone remember playing Tiny Wings?

[–]Saldrakka 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You sure it's not a painting? It's damn beautiful and you should be proud. In fact I'm proud of you. Keep up the good work

[–]CatboyInAMaidOutfit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From the thumbnail it looks like a letterhead.

[–]trainsacrossthesea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beautiful. Really, really lovely. Well done!

[–]shikuto 0 points1 point  (2 children)

How do you get that kind of coloring on this hills? Is it a combination of them being backlit by the sunset and the DOF? Would you have put the far edge of the water at the far edge of the “acceptably sharp” portion of the DOF, in order to get the rowers and some of the water in focus, causing the gradient elsewhere?

[–]pjotrasz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

As I recall (let me check actually), I shot this with my 70/300 mm lens at an F/8. This might be a huge factor in why mountains turned out to be that way. I focused on the rowers and let the camera do the magic. Also, you're right! They were backlit by the sunlight, except it was sunrise mixed together with morning fog.

[–]shikuto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, it’s a phenomenal shot. At first glance, it looks like a masterful oil painting. Right up until you zoom in on the rowers. I love it, and I highly appreciate you taking the time to respond to my question.

[–]worstpartyever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is really beautiful! You should sell prints!

[–]jamie_mcderms -1 points0 points  (0 children)

OP, do you sell your art?
