Heading Out

Little River, South Carolina, USA.
230mm f5.6 1/15s ISO1600
This image was a hand held capture.  I was working on location at sunset on Bird Island standing nearly on the state line between North and South Carolina.  My tripod was set up and my subject stationary.  I was killing time while the light changed a bit more.  Several recreation boaters were heading from the Atlantic Ocean into the mouth of the Little River and further into the Inter-Coastal Waterway.  Their destination unknown.  Conversely there were commercial fishing boats heading out.  Carolina shrimp boats making way to their fishing grounds.  I've included here the sunset original and a basic B&W conversion of it.  You can see that I worked over the image pretty good for my final.  I can see it hanging on the wall in a local seafood house telling the salty story of this evenings menu.
