Dragon – Yeah, I tried to crop more from the left, but it didn’t look right. Thanks.
Teresa – It is pretty big. Thanks.
Mark – It did turn out nicely. Thank you.
Emil – Thank you. 🙂
Cain – I was going to take an elevator up to a veranda so I could get I full shot from above, but this seemed like it would be a bit more interesting. Thanks.
Montucky – Thanks, man.

Outstanding, such a strange looking thing makes you look twice.

iheart: The cropping is nice, I was more referring to the “64” on the one side of the ship. Just being silly 😛

Wong – That’s one of the main reasons I shoot a lot of black and white – it gives things a kind of weight.
Dragon – Oh, O.K. It’s cool. 🙂

Great shot Chris. She’s looking at the viewer and with a bit of imagination it looks like an african mask. I love shooting ships too, but the shape of the Wisconsin is nothing I have seen here yet (the biggest here in the harbour is a carrier for Volvo -> ok, she’s impressive but also very chunky 😉

I love the perspective here. The composition is perfect. A definite 10!

Alain – Thanks. You know, I can see the African mask thing, especially given the anchors. 🙂
Ed – You’re too kind. Thank you.

Thanks, Erin. Glad you like it.

great shot! if a ship had a face, this is it. it’s amazing how those ships stay afloat when they’re so narrow!

I know! My grandfather was telling me about how they practically flip on their side in a storm, only to pop back up. Amazing.

nice perspective with beautiful lines!

Thanks, oz. This is one of the few shots of which I’m really proud.
