Great picture.

A theatre ship and an apt name for the company. I like that logo: Still waters run deep.
Les Auld: There are all sorts of little phrases and saying along the hull of the boat. Thanks for the comment Louis.

Still waters do run deep, Les! I love the HDR feel once again and in B&W.
Les Auld: I think I managed the HDR feel without actually doing it on this, all processing was done on a single image in Photoshop. Thanks for the comemnt Ginnie.

I like the movement in the flag contrasting with the stillness of the rest of the shot
Les Auld: So do I Paul, thanks for the comment.
This is a fantastic moody shot Les. I love the lighting
Les Auld: Thanks Richard, end of the evening, cold and dark, then I went home.
Love the composition, Les. It makes for such an interesting shot. Like the mono, too. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, I was trying for a long shot on the dock buildings but thought the boat would add interest.

Stunning shot and perspective. I agree with Paul, the swaying flag really does add a nice touch in this otherwise very still and moody shot.
Les Auld: Thanks Suzanne, appreciate your stopping by and commenting.

I like this a lot Les. Terrific atmosphere
Les Auld: Glad you do Bill, had to balance the camera on top of a bollard for this, did not have a tripod with me.
