The Return of the Ark Royal


Last June HMS Ark Royal paid a courtesy visit to Liverpool, her first to the port. Liverpool must have made a good impression as she was her again this weekend for a second visit, unfortunately the weather was not as good. A Grey Warship on a Grey River against a Grey Sky, true I have de-saturated it a touch but it was quite grey at the time. It also was one of the highest tides on the river I have sen for a long time.

This picture could have taken by Lord Greystoke smile Nice picture though with the almost selective colour look to it.
Les Auld: A touch of desaturation works wonders Louis, thanks for the comment.

It is my kind of image, Les, in so many ways, especially because of the lowering skies. I guess I like grey! smile
Les Auld: Glad you l like it Ginnie, thanks for the comment.

It still comes over as a good picture Les, in fact I like the greyness of the water and surroundings, it all gels together.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, matching greys then.
