It was pointed out as I was preparing this post, that in fact my wife was the one who wanted this picture taken. I will admit that I do try to keep my eyes open for possible photo opportunities, sometimes I miss things even if they are a big boat house.
The boat house is a very interesting building and at first look you wouldn’t know that is what it is. It looks more like a stylized out building. I wanted to frame the shot with more of the river but the background would have been full of modern buildings and I wanted to keep the photo concentrating on the architecture and not the contrast between old and new.
I do like the shadows of the trees falling across the building and the framed by the trees. I processed the image as a HDR to get the differing colours in the bricks and the micro contrast creating a faux sharpening with the bricks.
