Island Cabin by tfavretto Island Cabin by tfavretto
An old, boarded-up cabin sits on a small island in St. Joseph Channel, as seen from the end of Pine Island Road, roughly 15 km west of Desbarats, ON.

Nice observation. Good that you decided to include the cabin after all, that's what makes the picture interesting. Only sky would be empty and boring, even if pretty. But here is the contrast between a small and rather neglected cabin, and the vastness of the sky, and, by extension, the world. The contrail only emphasises that last part.

Yeah, I avoid taking photos of just the sky. I don't find them to be very creative or interesting. Instead, I try to find scenes where I can include something in the foreground using the sky as a backdrop.

Really beautiful. Cant decide if those contrails make it look less or more remote.

Thanks. I wasn't too sure about the contrail either, but there wasn't much I could do about it.

Excellent ... maybe I would have like a bit more saturation in the sea ... I'm a color addict ... :)

tfavretto Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2007
Thanks for your comment. This originally had a lot more saturation in the foreground, but I downplayed it a bit in order to draw more attention toward the sky. I used to be a bit of a color addict myself, but I've found myself enjoying more toned-down, desaturated shots lately.

I know what you mean ... I've got the same problems and I've also tried some desaturated stuff recently ... I'm on the right path to get rid of my "color problem" ... :) ... keep up the good work.

Haha! Well I think the boards might come off when it's in use during summer months, but I haven't actually checked for myself yet.

Beautiful. The house is really far away unfortunately, but I love how it gives place to a great expense of sky.

Thanks. The photo is really more about the sky than anything else. The cabin is just something that happened to be nearby that I decided to incorporate into the foreground.

No probs! THe sky is extremely entrancing, so good job. I do love the cabin though, so I'm glad you decided to include it.

Keep up the good work. And as always, you'll be seeing plenty of me.
