  1. The lighting and composition are perfection!
    An excellent image.

  2. What a fantastic find and capture. The lighting and composition are perfection!

  3. Breathtaking, Jane. The light, the texture, the composition. Wow.

  4. A magnificent photo Jane – beautiful tonality. Even though it’s now a shipwreck I think this fine vessel still looks elegant.

    • Hi Simon, Thank you very much. This grand dame is still hanging on and I love her. The light was special that day making for a nice monochrome conversion. I’m happy you like it coming from your keen eye.

  5. SPOOKY….Hmmmmmmmmmm….love to know what went on in there???? loving the details!!

  6. I think this is one of my all time favorites of yours. Everything. Composition. Black and white. And best of all…your love for this beautiful relic. You have such a heart and eyes charmed for the ordinary and extraordinary. You are gifted in seeing for us…and sharing.This ship sails in my heart because of you. I can’t wait for more of your gifts and sharing..

  7. Nice processing which creates a ship wrecked mood.,

  8. I love abandoned pictures although the fact things are abandoned makes me sad. Do you follow abandoned on instagram? Sound cool pics there, too.

  9. A very nice work – great composition and great rendering choice.

  10. Googled this to see it in color and I think your conversion to black and white was a great choice. In color it is interesting, one was at sunset and quite beautiful, but I like the mood that accompanies this old wreck in monochrome.
    I’ve seen a lot of steel wool on fire shots and don’t care for them either. Not a fan of fads such as this or rock stacking. But to do that on an old dried out wooden wreck was insane. Glad it survived that.

    • HI Steve, I’m happy you like the monochrome conversion. The clouds and varying light made it work for me. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I think social media has sparked some crazy behavior to “get the shot”.

  11. nice shot!
    my ship has
    looked that
    wrecked before ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I see from Atlas Obscura that photographers kept this wreck of a boat from being removed:

    • You are correct, Steve. And thankfully, was spared again when some thoughtless photographers set her stern on fire by trying to photograph burning steel wool. A fad I never liked and was crazy to do on an old wooden boat.

  13. Nice work, Jane. I like the subtle highlight on the paint of the wheelhouse.

  14. Perfect light on your boat and you made the best of it.

  15. Beautiful rendition of a feature of one of my favorite places in the whole world.

  16. Beautyful picture. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  17. Sad and beautiful – she still has life in her, I think, but then Iโ€™m a sucker for old wrecks!
    Thanks, Jane.

    • Thanks, Adam. She does but is slowly slipping away. I’m with you- I love her. Sadly, a couple of years ago, some idiot tried to do one of those steel wool fire shots and burned the back half. I’m glad you enjoyed this image– it makes me smile.

Love to hear what you think...
