Dinghy Planks, Fortress Louisbourg

Dinghy Planks, Fortress Louisbourg (click to enlarge)

Walking from the parking lot to Fortress Louisbourg proper you pass by a beached dinghy.  Okay, maybe it is bigger than a dinghy, but smaller than a dory? Anyway, the planks have great, weathered, texture to them.  As you can see, some of the planks have sprung outwards.  The arc of dark color along the bottom edge is actually red paint.

I wanted to focus attention on the the knots, splits, and grain of the wood so I converted the image to black and white using Silver Efex Pro.  A little extra contrast to highlight the splits and the image drags the eye from left to right into the sprung boards.

Notice the slight wave of the boards as they move from left to right.  This adds just a little bit of depth to the image.
