Historic Boston Photography: The Boston Fish Pier in the Seaport District

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/boston-fish-pier-juergen-roth.html

Last week I photographed another Boston historic landmark, The Boston Fish Pier. This Boston waterfront landmark in the buzzing Seaport district is one of the oldest continuously working fish piers in the United States of America. The historic Boston Fish Pier is in operation since 1914 and is now owned by Massport since 1972. The Port of Boston waterfront landmark provides berthing space for regional fishermen and is home to the fish auction. To today fishing and fish processing remains its primary function and the facility houses companies dedicated to the processing and shipment of seafood. This Boston Photography image shows fishing boats docked at the Boston Fish Pier photographed minutes before sunrise.

Camera settings were similar f/11, 13 seconds at ISO100. During routine post processing steps I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final photo of Boston Fish Pier.

Good light and happy photo making!
