photoblog image HMS Daring

HMS Daring


Thought I would try the Type 45 Destroyer, HMS Daring, as a monochrome. The smaller boat in the foreground is a Liverpool Pilot Vessel used for taking the pilots out to ships in Liverpool Bay.

Perfect in monochrome, Les. It's a very nice touch.
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, glad you like it.

The Daring is almost not recognisable as a ship in this picture - more like the extention of a building. It must have something to do with the so-called stealth technology, that it has those lines. Not like the HMS Hood at all - not bristling with guns etc.

Great picture and choice of b&w
Les Auld: Thanks Louis.

works well in monochrome, that ship is hardly recognisable as a destroyer
Les Auld: Misses lots of guns sticking out Zed, thanks for the comment.
Bit different to the destroyers we see in pld war films Les. This works well in mono.
Les Auld: Indeed they are Brian, thanks for the comment.
Didn't recognise the ship at first. They have certainly changed their appearance. Great shot in mono Les.
Les Auld: latest in stealth Ron, thanks for the comment.
I like the strong desaturation. Looks very futuristic.
Les Auld: State of the art indeed Paul, thanks for the comment.
