Photographically I thrive on composition & available light. I don’t hesitate to use my digital software to create what I like to see.
I very much agree with the concept : Like a good joke, if a photo or painting needs to be explained … it is probably not really so good.

    Wonderful composition Scott – lovely old vessels. The Hercules reminds me of the old steam tug Te Awhina ( 1908 ) that I crewed on back in the early sixties in Auckland New Zealand. We assisted many of the great liners of that era to berth and sail. Congratulations on your feature in the Nautical Group.

  • Thanks, Roy. You have had some great experiences at sea; would be fun to swap sea stories someday. Much of my experience was as a gun-fire control technician “Tin Can Sailor” on U.S. destroyers starting in 1959.
