photoblog image USS Empire State

USS Empire State


Originally built as the SS Oregan in 1962 the ship was converted to a training ship and delivered to the State University of New York Maritime College to train the sailors of tomorrow. Sha has also been utilised by the US Navy in several special operations. She is seen here moored at the Liverpool Cruise Liner Facility during a four day visit in June.

Very well taken capture here
You always seem to be able to make pictures like this really interesting Les.
It's a picture of a ship the judge would say at our Camera Clubs Les but as Bill says you somehow make these shots more interesting than that, in part I think because of your narrative. This goes well with the modern buildings in the background.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, I entered a ship image similar to this in a club competition and it did not do well at all, perhaps too much a record shot for the judge.
