great moment--I like that you included the flag as it grounds the image.
Les Auld: Thanks Dawn, I like the idea of a ship being grounded.
Very well done ! Bravo !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb.
Nice image. I love the way the flag contrasts with the `greyness`. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, I was going to desaturate the flag as well but I;m glad I didn't.
Love the way the flag stands out.
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, masked the flag out whilst I toned the rest of the picture.

The flag against all grey makes it a great (greyt? smile) picture
Les Auld: Nice one Louissmile
I agree with the others Les, the flag, blowing as it is, really makes this picture.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, flags do tend to be useful elements in pictures.

love it. don't about the flag making the picture as maybe it just adds colour to a wonderful shot. can't read the exif but you must have been quite a distance or you had a short barrel on still you know me and aircraft ...... ah yes, you just have to look in the mirror smile
Les Auld: This was about 100mm if memory serves me right, taken from the quayside, thanks for the comment.

That's nice, I like the way the flag add both a touch of colour and a bit of movement to the picture
Les Auld: Thanks Ellie, there was a bit of wind that evening.
