This image is submitted for a Challenge in the Around the World Group.

Originally shot in RAW, 3 frames, +2,0,-2 EV’s and tonemapped in Photomatix to give HDR effect.

Canon 400D

To emphasise the boat in the image I have added some grunge textures which I feel are in keeping with the subject.

This boat, or what is left of it, sits on the perimeter of Bembridge Harbour, Isle of Wight, England. I regret that I do not know the history of the boat.

    Interesting subject, I assume that CS is a Cowes registration.
