This is an incredibly clear picture, the details are amazing.
Les Auld: Thanks Ellie, the original was a bit drab so I converted it to an HDR image and then worked on it in Photoshop to bring out the detail. Glad you like it.
Another nice shot les, you certainly seem to have a lot of military vessels visting Liverpool from time to time.
Les Auld: The new landing stage seems to attract them Brian, thanks for the comment.
