For my Day Prime challenge Day 30 I took the Pentacon 3.5/30mm on A99ii (on tripod).
After work a quick visit to the harbour for some shots.
Not easy to work all manual in the dark and freezing cold

#1 Vos Sweet (dredger / offshore support)



#2 Mooring



#3 Vos Sweet-2



#4 From behind



#5 It's sister Vos Sugar



#6 Sisters



#7 Reflections



#8 Rope - 2



#9 Anchor



#10 Quay



#11 The other side



C&C more than welcome.
TFL.

Nice series Fred! Some great work in interesting light. I think I like 5 best for the isolation of the ship... and 10 for a very different "street" composition!

Cheers

What i like best here is the beautiful blue sky in the first ones. A great example of well chosen time to shoot photo's. This was lost a bit in #5, 10 and 11. The reflections in #7 look good too. Maybe you could experiment a bit with several cut outs of the window too. TFS Fred     .

A very interesting photographic 'essay' with some lovely images. I agree with Michel about the beautiful 'blue hour' sky. My favourites are ##2, 4, 7 and 8, and I would like #7 even more if the left side was cropped a little so that only the window frame is in it.
Thanks for posting.

A fine series Fred
Good trade off for defying the cold.
Love the light in #4, that I like best of the series (by far)
But the others are fine too.

Great series!
a6500 & some nice e-mount lenses. Be fond of photography - this is the way to alleviate stress

Lots of ships and details (plus the night shots' atmosphere) - and very well captured: great set, Fred!

It's difficult for me to select favorites - with one exception: #7 is a really unusual take - the brickstones framing the reflected image, a great find!

TFS!

Thanks all for your kind comments!
I had experimented and struggled with the right crop for #7, but initially this gave the best outcome for me, since it gave an indication of the dimensions and I liked the bricks. However I have had a look and some tries again after your comments but it remains a struggle for me Should I include the bricks or not, if yes, how much, should I leave out the border?
Here's one just with the window. Not sure if it is a real improvement. If anybody else wants to give it a try , feel free.

For me the brickstones frame #7 and they are a necessary ingredient to make it a special picture - but that's only my opinion.

I have to second that, without the bricks there's definitely something missing.

I like the bricks framing the window, just thought it would look better a little tighter cropped on the left to take out the metal frame from the blind/canopy?
