Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 27, 2019 • 11:23 am 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.

Thank you so much for your kind words- I really appreciate it. 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Reply ↓ Sherry Felix May 26, 2019 • 7:30 am Nice processing which creates a ship wrecked mood., Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:35 am Thank you, Sherry. I’m glad you agree that the processing helped create the mood. Much appreciated. Reply ↓ LisaDay May 26, 2019 • 6:35 am I love abandoned pictures although the fact things are abandoned makes me sad. Do you follow abandoned on instagram? Sound cool pics there, too. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:34 am Thank you, Lisa. I do love old and abandoned scenes and I will definitely check out that hashtag on IG. Appreciate the tip. 🙂 Reply ↓ YellowCable May 26, 2019 • 4:21 am A very nice work – great composition and great rendering choice. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:33 am Thanks so much, YC. I’m glad you enjoyed this one. 🙂 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold May 26, 2019 • 12:04 am 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. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:33 am 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”. Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com May 25, 2019 • 9:26 pm Beautiful shades of grey, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:31 am Thanks, Cornelia. This one worked well in monochrome. Glad you like it. 🙂 Reply ↓ smilecalm May 25, 2019 • 5:53 pm nice shot! my ship has looked that wrecked before 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 26, 2019 • 11:31 am Thanks, Smilecalm. 🤣 Reply ↓ Steve Schwartzman May 25, 2019 • 4:25 pm I see from Atlas Obscura that photographers kept this wreck of a boat from being removed: https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/point-reyes-boat Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 4:56 pm 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. Reply ↓ camerapacker May 25, 2019 • 2:59 pm One of the best of its type. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 4:57 pm It’s a beauty in its decay, isn’t it, Bruce? Glad you like it- thank you. Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra May 25, 2019 • 2:30 pm Nice work, Jane. I like the subtle highlight on the paint of the wheelhouse. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 5:00 pm Thanks for noticing that, Allan. The light was beautiful that day. Much appreciated. 😊 Have you been here? Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra May 27, 2019 • 10:52 am As a matter of fact, We were there in April: https://wp.me/p24idL-6U4 Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 27, 2019 • 11:18 am Excellent shot, Allan. Hopefully she stands tall for a long time to come. 🙂 Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra May 28, 2019 • 11:42 am I hope so. A couple of years ago it almost burned down because of a time-lapse photographer and his ill-fated attempt to capture a photo of someone spinning a bundle of flaming steel wool at night. Ω Jane Lurie May 28, 2019 • 12:01 pm Yes…a famously stupid act. paula graham May 25, 2019 • 2:10 pm Perfect light on your boat and you made the best of it. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 2:17 pm Thank you, Paula. The light was so appealing that day shining on her bow. Pleased you like this shot- much appreciated. Reply ↓ Michael Scandling May 25, 2019 • 12:33 pm Beautiful rendition of a feature of one of my favorite places in the whole world. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 12:56 pm Thanks very much, Michael. Means a lot coming from someone who knows her so well. Much appreciated. 😊 Reply ↓ blhphotoblog May 25, 2019 • 12:18 pm Beautiful shot Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 12:57 pm Thank you, Brian. She’s a beauty and a favorite subject. Glad you like her! Reply ↓ Detlef Gimbel May 25, 2019 • 12:07 pm Beautyful picture. 👍👍👍 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 5:53 pm Thanks very much, Detlef. She’s a pretty gal.

Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 11:08 am Hi Rabirius, I’m happy you like it– thanks so much. Reply ↓ Richard Broom Photography May 25, 2019 • 10:04 am An excellent image. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 11:08 am Thank you very much, Richard. I’m pleased you like this one. Reply ↓ plaidcamper May 25, 2019 • 8:58 am Sad and beautiful – she still has life in her, I think, but then I’m a sucker for old wrecks! Thanks, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 25, 2019 • 11:07 am 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.
