  7. 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.

  8. 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 😛

  10. 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. 🙂

  11. 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 😉

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

    March 27, 2009 at 11:46 PM

  13. Alain – Thanks. You know, I can see the African mask thing, especially given the anchors. 🙂

    Ed – You’re too kind. Thank you.

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

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

    April 18, 2009 at 10:08 AM
