Swansea F A I N T - M U M B L E S

Swansea Photo: a fantastic Swansea Photograph Featuring F A I N T - M U M B L E S

Photograph Taken On Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Last week, on the last day of my trip to Wales, I visited Mumbles - and shot the much photographed Old Lifeboat Station that juts off the pier. Arriving a few hours before sunset with a high tide, I grew increasingly doubtful that there'd be any colour in the sky at sunset. With an overcast sky, I decided to get he camera out early and use the conditions to my advantage for a "different" minimal high-key style shot. The red roof of the building provided a colourful focal point which I chose to position in the centre of the frame. I pushed the exposure to the right, taking care not to clip the highlights, to give a stark contrast. I also de-saturated the scene a little in post editing. A long exposure of 30 seconds flattened the water for a minimal look.
