All's wet at the dry-dock by 

It might be called a dry-dock but in reality there is a lot of water under high pressure sprayed on the ships before a new coat of paint can be applied.
Also at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town and part of the Dry-dock collection

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    A great action shot, hope you add the other two shots also

  • Thank you. I was thinking about limiting my posts to recent work but maybe I will make an exception. (I get such nice comments!)

    What a brilliant capture.
    And what a reflection as well.
    Your collection in the Drydock is totally awesome

  • Thanks a lot. The reflection was very faint and I almost missed it but I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing with the image.

    Lovely shot. I love how this guy stands out in his green work wear amongst the water mist and then again in that gorgeous reflection.

  • Thank you. Right at the end I actually toned down the vibrancy a bit to make it more natural.

    Excellent work and congratulations on being featured :O)

  • Thank you. Most of what you see was initially obscured by a fine mist. It took a lot of manipulation to get to this.

    Very well captured!

  • Thanks a lot. The rare, for Cape Town, soft overcast light helped a lot.
