While the trees across the river caught my eye I felt I had to try to get at least one pic of the frosted hulks..

Cool close-in image, Geedee. Some lucky bloke has a nice prop for a souvenir!

Nice composition Geedee.

Lots of textures in there - the mud, the weed, the wood.

Interesting subject for sure. Not sure if it was possible but I would like to see the image with a wider angle and greater depth of field. ie. the wreck in the foreground with landscape like " trees across the river " behind.

I am pleased you find something of interest in this pic guys..(-:  I am attracted to this place and this hulk in general imagining how many stories might be contained within it`s sad decaying structure..

 

Mark check this second pic, there is still a hulk with a prop if you fancy a bit of grovelling about in the mud between tides...(-:

 

Rod, talk of textures...hmm, seems you are leaning a tad too much towards the arty farty for a Plebian such as I (-:

 

John, given the distances involved between the hulk and the trees on the far shore it would seem to be impossible to  to achieve a similar perspective on the hulk AND the far shore trees as the pic I posted that included the Cormorants sitting on the breakwater. You might gain a better understanding should you check the other two pics I posted in the landscape section and the second posted here..?

That's another nice photograph, Geedee.   It has a nice sky and the lines are very strong.  I'm pondering the vanishing point on the right edge of the frame - (the bow of the derelict vessel ). I think its fine, and not too tight to the edge of frame.  (Other opinions are available).

 

Plebeian ?  That must mean you're a copper working the gates at the houses of parliament ? B)

 

I'm working my way through Chelsea & Tony's latest "The art & science of photography", so YES  artification is my goal in 2018. ;)

Thanks Rod, the luck in this one was that the sky was not too bright thus to capture reasonable detail I did not have to attempt to balance it with the available light in rest of the scene by using an ND grad..

 

There is an electrified railway line running tight to the right hand side of the scene with all the usual H beams insulators and cables  to spoil things somewhat.

 

Rod, I usually just go with Pleb, though unsure our North American cousins would automatically recognise the shortened version as a descriptor of my social standing.. (-:

 

The only art I am proficient at has an "F" in front of the three letters... )-:  Had C&T`s latest work been in book form, I would have bought a copy..
