I was on a large bridge, trying to capture an industrial yard situated beside the Varna channel, when this white yacht came into my focus...so I took a shot of it too.
As the water around it turned out too transparent, showing shadows of all the rocks beneath the surface, thus covered with see-weeds, I decided to transform its colour into indigo - to eliminate the disturbig shadows and not very good colours of the water. There is the result...
As a WS I am posting the original - only cleared twice and cropped a bit to situate the boat better.
I am eager to hear your opinions about it...:-)

The water is so silky. The blue is very nice but it is quite too much of a tone. BUT the one thing that I would very much praise about thi shot is the composition. Very very good angle!

I'm not syre that this wonderful color has a name, but it is so nice. I like the position of the yacht.
Hey, it should be the Black Sea, right? where is the black ;-)

Yes, the shooting angle was well chosen for this one indeed, Maria. Nice to have the boat enter the frame from the bottom right corner. The reflection of the mast looks quite surreal too ;-) The indigo blue is a bit heavy but hey this is TL and blue is my favorite color, so why would I complain?

Nicely composed and great contrast in the colours Maria. I like the reflections and ripples too. Well done.

Oh Maria - Very lovely image you got out of that little dull photo - The Indigo works very well - good choice.
I also like the diagonal direction of the boat - very well spotted and captured.

Fine effect this Indigo colour.
I like the placing of the boat in this very great blusih sea. Well done Maria..

the colour are trully calm. Indigo are fantastic. But i think its too sharp for my eye.

I didn't notice, that you were here too, Maria ! ! !
Boats again ?
Super-composition and fine blue colours, nice done.

Great fun Maria! The indigo water has an unusual texture to it, at least on my monitor, almost as though it were a colored plastic tarp. At the same time the color is not so outrageous that it couldn't exist in nature under the right lighting conditions. I like how you're playing with images. Well done.

Hello Maria, my compliments to you on an excellent composition.
The incredible stillness of the water, broken only by the waves of the white yacht, is beautiful, the contrasting colours are also very beautiful.
Very well done, good work.

I feel like I'm flying when I'm looking it!

super, clear and soft

Lovely picture! I like the effect of the indigo water, especially when compared to the original. Out of interest, what software did you use to create this effect, as I have tried similar many times and not been able to achieve this kind of result. TFS!
