    I'm not quite sure where to put these - should they be in sports, or everything else (or the bin...as some may say!)
    At any rate, they are a couple of abstract/ICM images using the local marina ad some coloured sails as the subject. Taken using a polariser and ND3 together, and about a half second exposure with slight vertical panning. Personally, I love the feeling of movement, and the deep saturation of colour which ICM can bring to a shot.
    I know they aren't everyone's cuppa, but comments are welcome.

    These are working well for me Pete, fresh idea on an old theme. Good set.

    Superb work Pete, very fresh, invigorating and clean. Like them all but think the first could benefit from cropping out the bright red sail on the immediate right hand edge of the frame.
    The second is my preference of them all, the colour palette is gorgeous along with the proportions being spot on.

    Wonderful images Pete, just wonderful ... hard to pick a favourite, and all would look great framed and on a wall.

    Thanks WT!

    Cheers Scott! Thanks for the crop advice - that will work. My fave is also the second, for the reasons you have said.

    Thank you David.

    Thanks HP...not so much thought though :D!

    Thank you Paul....as it happens, I'm just thinking about new stuff for the kitchen wall...

    Glad you like them Barry!

    I like these! Great idea and well executed.

    What are the main settings you tend to use? I'm assuming you use shutter speed priority?

    Some great results Pete. The colours pop against the background.

    Thank you Edward! I always crank the aperture as tight as I can to get the sharpness in my ICM stuff (ha - sounds like I know what I'm talking about :grin:...), otherwise they tend to end up a blurry mush. Here, the shutter speed was about 1/2 a second, and the exposure was controlled using ISO and the ND filter. The hardest bit is to remember to be moving the camera when the shutter is pressed, or the boats have a clear definition then blur, which doesn't work as well for me.

    Cheers Mike - ICM is great for colour.

    Me too. This is key to getting ICM to work right, start the motion before you open the shutter.

    I'd lay money on IOTW, I keep coming back for another look. These imaged have an excellent draw to them.

    It was an easy choice for me this week. I love this set.
