...the series continues. Training sessions on the Tamar are usually 5 km in length and operate around the tides. With a daily 3.5m tide in Launceston rowers have to keep within the confines of navigational markers or risk sitting in mud for a couple of hours before the tide turns.

The final 2000m is usually at race speed and follows the original race course finishing opposite the clubhouse.

When you can do something well, it's almost your responsibility to see how far you can take it ~ James Tomkins, OAM is an Australian rower, seven-time World Champion and a three-time Olympic gold medallist.

The low perspective works to bring the viewer down into the world of the rowers as they navigate their training course. The contrast between the rowers, their boat and the darker nature of the foliage on the shore helps to make the rowers and their boat stand out strongly in the image. The space to the right creates a sense of movement left to right in the picture.

Nicely captured David, I like the lighting and how the background comes into view along with it's colors.

Lovely! The scull appears beautifully through the mist and I like the white trunks and branches in the greenery of the background.

I really like how the light has arrived just in time to highlight the background, David. A beautifully pastoral view with a calming feel about it. Thanks for the educational notes, has always.

Nicely Done.

Have a GREAT evening.
