Les, Brillant black and white for boat Friday and I love the texture of this photo smile
Les Auld: Thanks Frances, a light texture layer over the top certainly helped.
Um, it looks like some of the barges are under water. Is that a problem?
Les Auld: Not at this time Larry, thanks for the comment.

From this perspective, Les (from the bridge I never crossed, I assume), you do see the barges under water, as Larry mentioned. Wow. I never would have known if you hadn't shown this!
Les Auld: I must admit to not seeing them at the time either Ginnie, it was only when I processed the picture they came to light. Thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: Thanks Vintage, appreciate the comment.
I so like the treatment here Les.

I did not notice at the time Les but some of them have sunk
Les Auld: So they do Chris, I did not notice either, thanks for the comment.
A very nice shot Les, suits b/w very well.
Les Auld: Much better than the colour Frank, thanks for the comment.

B/W really suits this image, the sunken barges really add to it, quite sad really smile
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Linda, appreciate it.
The sunken ones show beautifully in this fine b&w Les
Les Auld: They do indeed Bill, thanks for the comment.
I hadn't noticed the sunken boats either Les. B&W works well with this.
Les Auld: Neither had I Brian, thanks for the comment.
Thought they looked familier Les. They look well in B&W
Les Auld: There was just too much contrast in the colour version Martin, thanks for the comment.

The more you look, the more you see - very ghostly.
Les Auld: You could just imagine the boats rising up during a dark and moonless night, thanks for the comment Ingrid.
Great depth & texture Les!
Les Auld: About six feet I think Fred, thanks for the comment.
