Picking up old ships to make new ones - hopefully.
Les Auld: Enough scrap there for a whole flotilla Louis, thanks for the comment.
This gives some idea of the size of this ship les and an excellent choice of foreground.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, I would put it in the mid range of size Brian, thanks for the comment.

When you see cranes on ships, you realize just how big they are, Les! I do like your POV here from between the scrap heaps.
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie they look quite small when out at sea though, thanks for the comment.
I suppose the shipping of scrap to China has slowed down a bit. Perhaps they will stop nicking manhole covers nowtongue
Les Auld: It has Bill, the scrap is piling up in the docks at the moment, thanks for the comment.
When we were on the ferry there...I could see vast amounts of scrap metal waiting to be loaded..pyramids of it. A good capture here Les.
Les Auld: Second largest export in Liverpool Ron, thanks for the comment.
Good one Les. I like the sharpness and all that detail in the foreground.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, appreciate the comment.
This one looks great! Great composition, fantastic details and fine colors.

I would like to note that perhaps your camera sensor could use a clean up. In the sky I see a million dust spots. Once I had exactly the same issue.
Les Auld: Thanks Paul, I can see what you mean, I suppose I will have to screw up the courage to clean the sensor.
